At first he catches your attention because he pauses during his songs. And what’s he doing with his mouth?
Then you wonder what he’s singing about. Then you wonder how someone just out of high school can have such a powerful, gravelly voice. Then you marvel at his guitar skills. Then you notice that he sounds like Adam Sandler’s Waterboy character sometimes.
He sings a song from the perspective of a goldfish that’s about more than a fish.
He croaks a song about old people. Is he poking fun or offering a critical commentary on how society devalues the elderly?
This guy’s got talent. He’s like a male version of Lorde. Watch him go.

Oh my goodness! I saw Jacob at Beaner earlier in the year and absolutely fell in love with him! His voice, his lyrics, his uniqueness. He’s creating a new music genre all by himself.
Hi Gail! Yes, I was thinking about it today, and if I had to name his style of music, it would be grunge acoustic.
