Jacob Johnson | Neo-Acoustic Folk/Funk
Blending and blurring the lines of genres, this energetic performer crafts a unique vibe that grabs you and take you on a rockin’ ride. Jacob Johnson quips that he’s a musician, and not used to ‘the single digit’ hours of the day, but quickly kicks it into high gear, expertly strumming and thumping his guitar. He even played a love song to his favorite ‘lady,’ his six string. When he walks on stage, he immediately engages with the audience; when he walks off ten minutes later, it’s to wildly enthusiastic applause.
Jacob Johnson is a young, energetic performer and SC native who has shared stages with songwriting masters from Edwin McCain to David Wilcox, and hangs out with guitar heroes like Tommy Emmanuel and Tim Reynolds (right-hand man to Dave Matthews). While it’s his flashy guitar pyrotechnics that might grab your attention, his songwriting, personality, and performance style are what set him apart from the rest of the pack of other young guitar-slingers. In short, to quote Tommy Emmanuel, “Jacob rocks!”.
