Jacob Paul Allen
Singer | Songwriter
"Appalachian Red Dirt," That's how Jacob Paul Allen describes his style of Country Music. It leans more on the Traditional side, influenced by the sounds of 90's Country mixed with some Texas/Red-Dirt/Americana music. It flirts with the Outlaw Country sound and dances around Bluegrass. Throw in some John Prine and Tom Petty influence and you'll start to get a taste of Jacob's music. It's a style and sound that he has crafted on stages large and small from coast to coast for the past 15 years. From the neon lights of Lower Broadway in Nashville, TN to the famed Whisky-A-Go-Go on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood, CA. He has opened for acts such as Town Mountain, Thompson Square, Dylan Scott, Sonia Leigh and Niko Moon
After spending a couple of years in Nashville, TN Jacob returned home to his Blue Ridge Mountain roots in Nelson County, Virginia and has put together a rocking Country band that has quickly gained attention from fans and venues in the Central Virginia music Scene. They have performed on WDVX's Blue Plate Special in Knoxville, TN as well as Charlottesville's Ting Pavilion for the highly attended Fridays After Five event. Whether he is playing a solo show or getting rowdy with his band, Jacob captures the audience with his infectious stage presence and reels them into the stories that he tells in his songs and his stage banter. Jacob released his debut EP "Southern Love" in January of 2023 and has recently released his highly anticipated hometown anthem "Tyro" which has quickly become a crowd favorite.
