Jacob Paul Allen

Singer | Songwriter

"Appalachian Red Dirt,"  That's how Jacob Paul Allen describes his style of Country Music. It's a finely mixed concoction of Texas/Outlaw Country with hints of Bluegrass and 90's Country. Throw in a pinch of John Prine and then sprinkle some Tom Petty influence on top and you'll start to get a taste of the JPA sound. It's a 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 Music City to the famed Whisky-A-Go-G0 on the Sunset Strip and countless bars, breweries, wineries, dives and venues between, it's safe to say that Jacob is no stranger to entertaining a crowd.

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 and beyond. They have opened for bands like Town Mountain and 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, both in his songs and his stage banter. Jacob released his debut EP  "Southern Love" in early January of 2023 and has already begun to work on a follow up project. With more songs being written and recorded, 2023 is shaping up to be an exciting year for JPA fans.
