A multi-Instrumentalist, singer, writer; Jacob McCullough has come from a lot of different musical worlds. Beginning his musical endeavors in the world of classic rock, he's developed a very visceral connection with music, eventually he'd realize it wasn't enough for him and he'd desire to dive deeper into the roots of the sounds he admired. He then stumbled upon folk music, a music that, to this day, is very near and dear to his heart. The potential for storytelling and the value of witnessing musical snippets of history appeals to Jacob rather deeply. Jacob found his way around plenty of musical idioms, picking up techniques from classical discipline and flamenco technique.
Eventually Jacob would find his way to a musical sound who's depth was so deep, Jacob would find himself drowning in said sound attempting to make sense of the complex idiom of j a z z. Jacob is drowning in Jazz and doesn't desire to find a lifeguard.
