Jeff Jacobs grew up in San Antonio from the age of 5. He lived in a poor neighborhood on the southwest side of town with his mother and brother. His mother struggled working two jobs and living with family. “My Mom worked hard to get my brother and I to a middle class living, and every day I try to provide the same for my family.” In his teenage years he started playing the guitar, thanks to a nudge by his older brother, and started writing songs. Being in many different genres of music such as rock, grunge, and metal; Jeff decided that country talked to him more than any of those genres. “Country music is about everyday life. When you’re young you just want to rebel and act like a nut. Now, I’m just trying to get by and country music gets me through the day and that’s why I choose to write it.”
With a new album set for a release in summer 2019, new single in May, and many touring dates coming, there is no doubt the Jeff Jacobs Band is working hard to maintain their reputation.
