Jacob Rice & Cross Atlantic- 6.10.22
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.
Cross Atlantic are powerhouse vocalist and songwriter Karli Chayne from Bolivar, MO and English musician-producer, James Sinclair-Stott of Huddersfield, UK. Although they grew up worlds apart, they bonded over common creative and rural upbringings after a chance meeting at Nashville’s Crema coffee shop in 2015. When they started baring their souls to one another through songwriting, they uncovered an undeniable, forever creative partnership that successfully blended Sinclair-Stott’s British rock background with Chayne’s rich heritage as a seasoned performer from the Missourian Ozarks.
Songs like the irresistible “Jigsaw Puzzle” and the romantic “Just a Word” are inspired by their own personal experiences, yet their messages feel universal. Over the last few years, their warm and ear-catching musical blend has drawn attention from Billboard, CMT, and MusicRow, to name a few.
“Jigsaw Puzzle” from Cross Atlantic is a fun twist on the classic love song. The married duo’s latest release is a fresh look on how two hearts are sometimes just meant to be together. Written by Cross Atlantic with frequent co-writer Porter Howell, a founding member, guitarist, and now lead singer of the 90’s country band, Little Texas (“What Might Have Been,” “My Love,” “God Blessed Texas”). “Jigsaw Puzzle” combines an honest and heartfelt tone in the verses with a playful shift into the chorus. Produced by Cross Atlantic’s James Sinclair-Stott along with Derek George (Randy Houser, Tenille Arts, Joe Nichols) the song has a feel-good groove and an infectious melody to go along with the quirky hook.
“Jigsaw Puzzle” follows Cross Atlantic’s most recent release “Just A Word” which spent time on Spotify’s New Music Nashville playlist and is still currently on Apple Music’s Country Wide playlist. Exclusively premiered by Billboard, the accompanying heartfelt music video mixes personal wedding footage from the couple’s Sept. 24, 2019 nuptials with an acoustic performance by Karli and James.
