Jacob Long has become a name synonymous with catchy, alterna-pop songs with lyrics and melodies that are easy to catch on and sing along to.
From solo performances to band frontman, Jacob has been earning respect from his peers as a talented singer-songwriter and praise from audiences along the east coast.
With inspiration ranging from The Fray and Ed Sheeran to Coldplay and The Script, Jacob has topped local and national indie music charts, and been heavily involved with Townsville’s music scene, including King Social shows, Burnda Street events and Townsville Cultural Fest.
He has also toured with Aussie legends Ian Moss and James Reyne, played Easterfest in South-East Queensland two years running, and already had international attention with his latest EP, Treading Water.
The new dad celebrated the birth of his first child, Abigail Rose, and released his second EP, Treading Water - the latter debuting to a packed house at The Basement Bar in February. The Ep debuted in the Townsville Top Ten, which led to a live in-store performance at Artie's Music in March.
The 100% crowd-funded Treading Water follows on from Jacob’s self-titled debut in 2014, and was recorded at The Rec Room in Townsville in 2015, produced by Jacob Long and Adrian Moriconi; mixed by Adrian Moriconi at Trident Creative Industries and mastered by Dave Neil at Modern Mastering.
