After a long and seasoned career as a bassist and sideman to many, clocking up an impressive list of albums and international tours along the way, Bill Jacobi has more recently been settling into the north coast lifestyle and embracing the role of singer/songwriter, solo performer and one-man band.
As a solo artist, Bill uses foot percussion, lap slide and open-tuned guitars, and a combination of finger picking and bassline-driven rhythm that snakes and rattles around songs that are both evocative and passionate.
The result is a repertoire of engaging and exciting material that runs the gamut from folk to funk to hillbilly stomp and beyond.
With years of experience behind him, Bill has proven himself to be a captivating performer, moving effortlessly between soulful and intimate interpretations to foot-stomping crowd shakers.
Bill will play the Sheoak Shack on Saturday at 3pm.
