Jacob Rice & Friends- 1.27.23
Listening to country radio today, it’s not uncommon to find an artist challenging the norms, and recording music for the love of the lyric. But in a genre currently dominated by flat brims and ball caps, you’ll find Jacob Rice strumming on your heart strings.
Coming from the town of Wallingford, Vermont with a mere 2000 residents, Jacob was raised stacking the wood stove, enjoying the great outdoors, and writing his songs by the river. Like the sap from the maple trees, his sweet songs are taken straight from the heart. Jacob’s hybrid country sound transcends genre to deliver an authentic experience driven by heartfelt lyrics and a soulful, passionate vocal.
Now based out of middle Tennessee, Jacob has immersed himself in the Nashville music scene, performing at legendary venues around town, and writing songs with exceptional rising stars in country music. He was named the Middle Tennessee finalist of the 2022 Tennessee Songwriters Week competition, hosted by the Tennessee Department of Tourism, The Bluebird Cafe, Nashville Songwriters Association International, and Taylor Guitars. Jacob was also chosen by the prestigious Bluebird Cafe and Taylor Guitars as their January 2021 Golden Pick winner.
Jacob has been featured on Spotify’s “New Music Nashville”, Vermont Public Radio, and 101.5 WEXP Vermont Community Radio. He has had the honor of being produced by Chad Cromwell (Anders Osbourne, Joe Walsh, Neil Young) and Paul Worley (Lady A, The Chicks, Martina McBride) for an upcoming project. All of these accomplishments are a testament to his hard work and dedication to making great, lasting music.
Jacob Rice is ready to show the world who he is – one song at a time.
