Bio

Jakob is an artist / songwriter / producer whose face may be familiar to some. The multi-faceted Sydney native has created his own highly charged alternative pop blend that draws from R&B and hip-hop and fuses it with genre bending production. Though Jakob may only be 19 years old, he already has a lifetime of experience in music to draw from.

Possessing a deep love for music but completely unaware he was harboring a talent for it, Jakob Delgado’s future was heading towards sport. An elite soccer player at a young age, Jakob had the talent to turn it into a lucrative career. That was until his mum heard him singing around the house and asked if he’d like to go to a music bootcamp with his sister. Soon after, Jakob hung up his boots, started a band, and courtousy of some broad tv exposure and a facebook partnership, at just 14 years old had his first top 10 record.

Jakob’s band dissolved in early 2018 and it was then Jakob transitioned into a solo career which he has been developing ever since.

This is a bop Jakob! So sweet, full of heart and that momentum is so catchy.

Jakob's developing a good catalogue of songs right in that light and bouncy alt pop. This one shows off his croon with nimble energy.
