While still only 24-years of age, Gabriel Jacoby has already worked as a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and composer for more than a decade.
New single ‘As you stand next to me’ showcases this talent’s exceptional artistry, and treats listeners to a sound that subtly blends soul with funk, jazz and alternative R&B. The song feels future-forward and unique, while still maintaining a strong emotive essence.
“I grew up on Nina Simone, The Wailors, James Brown, and Outkast… Those were the only records we had in the house for years. Raised in Anderson, SC, out in the far country, we didn’t have cable or internet for most of the 2000’s; just a record player with a broken radio. Once I figured I can play multiple sounds just like Prince or even Curtis Mayfield , I knew I’d never limit myself at creativity. I decided one day I’ma be somebody great, someone you’ll never forget.”
Supported by the likes of Fashionably Early, Lyrical Lemonade and Early Rising, Jacoby is a name to watch for in 2023.
