Known for his powerful, live performances, WILL JACOBS is a modern Blues/R&B/Soul artist. Raised in Chicago, USA, he's already a well-seasoned performer at only 25 years of age.
No stranger to performance stages, Will honed his chops the old-fashioned way – experience. At 12 years old, he was gigging in Chicago clubs backing many of the city's finest blues men and women ....at the same time playing in a Grammy-winning, high school jazz band. In 2009, he attracted local and international attention when his first band (Dirty Deal) performed at the International Blues Showcase in Memphis, Tennessee after winning the Chicago Blues Challenge-youth division competition. Will & the band left their mark because of Will’s mature improvisational skills and vocal talents, coupled with a strong, blues-infused sound. These experiences led him to further study at Berklee College of Music (Boston, USA), then gigging/composing/session work in Chicago, US touring with CJ Chenier and even a performance stint in Sri Lanka.
Making the jump across the pond to Europe in mid-2016, Will began performing and sharing his dynamic playing skills in Berlin, Germany plus performing with Hohner artist, Marcos Coll at festivals in Poland, Spain & France . Whether playing clubs/festivals, gigging with other world-class musicians, doing sessions work or composing, Will looks forward to sharing his music.
