Jacob elevates and serves the music through his authentic, precise, and ambitious approach as an improviser, connecting to audiences through the shared human experience. As an artist, he has crafted original compositions and arrangements unified by soundscapes of intensity and vulnerability; all the while being immensely steeped in the rich tradition of Black American Music. Jacob completed his degree in Jazz Performance at McGill University in 2021, where he had the privilege of working with some of Canada’s most renowned musicians including Rémi Bolduc, André White, and Christine Jensen. Currently, Jacob is channeling his creativity into a new venture – the Jacob Do Octet – where he combines his extensive training with a bold artistic vision, resulting in a captivating blend of tradition and contemporary exploration. This refreshing instrumentation gives Jacob access to a dynamic sound palette that evokes ferocity, persistence, intimacy, and nostalgia. The Jacob Do Octet is enthusiastically anticipating its debut performance at the Yardbird Suite in Edmonton, AB in March 2024, promising a thrilling new chapter in Jacob’s musical journey.
