Jacob Bryant get real on his Faith, Career and life!
Updated: Mar 29, 2018
Jacob Bryant grew up in Jasper, Georgia and at age 14 began to write songs. Soon he found himself fronting bands playing local social events and churches. Eventually he was awarded the Georgia Country & Gospel Music Association’s Best Male Vocalist, Entertainer of the Year, and Songwriter of the year awards. He also received the North American Country Music Association’s, International Male Vocalist of the Year award.
With his success came opportunities and at the age of 19, he formed Jacob Bryant & 151, becoming the house band at Cowboy’s, one of Atlanta’s best known country venues.
In 2014 Jacob released his self-titled EP and began touring the southeast and parts of the mid-west to expand his fan base and growing list of supporters. Releasing THROUGH THE WINDSHIELD, his second EP, Jacob is quickly turning heads and further developing his signature country voice and southern rock sound.
Songs on the new EP include the monster track Save My Soul, co-written with Jon Lawhon of the rock band Black Stone Cherry, Just Enough Jesus, written by Bridgette Tatum and Danny Myrick (She’s Country- Jason Aldean) and Where Has The Time Gone, co-written with Taylor Phillips. The southern anthem, Holdin’ On To Home, written by Adam Craig (Jason Aldean, Dustin Lynch) and Jamie Paulin (Justin Moore) features a nostalgic sound, while the title track, co-written with Chris Rogers and Ray Fulcher, delivers a smart, country-rock single with a catchy guitar riff.
"Jacob has a rare combination of humility, talent and grounding. His openness and vulnerability about his life experiences, make his music very relatable.. and in turn, loveable. Jacob is an artist that knows who he is and where he is going. He dedicates his life to his craft and keeps his faith and beliefs close to his heart. When you think of Southern Rock, Jacob Bryant should be a name that sticks at the forefront. He is happy to sit where he is and will not sway from his roots to conform. I had such a pleasure chatting with Jacob and can't wait to see what this next album holds in store! "
