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 and Americana music. It flirts with the  Outlaw Country sound and dances around Bluegrass at times. 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-G0 on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood and countless venues, dive bars, breweries and wineries in between. He has opened for acts such as Town Mountain, Thompson Square, Dylan Scott, Sonia Leigh and Niko Moon  

After a two year stay in Nashville, TN, Jacob has returned home to his Blue Ridge Mountain roots in Nelson County, Virginia and has put together a rocking Country band that is quickly gaining 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 events. Whether he is playing a solo show or rocking the house with his backing band, The Flood, Jacob captures the audience with his 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 is releasing his highly anticipated song "Tyro" on May 20th, 2023 at Rapunzel's Coffee and Books in Lovingston, VA.
