Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Jacob Rountree. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and liked the charming vibes of his music.
The sound proposed by this artist, together with his band, is truly an incredible musical experience.
The first thing that struck me is Jacob Rountree‘s beautiful vocal timbre, a deep voice that manages to speak directly to the soul and heart of the listener and makes you believe the words of the lyrics.
We are faced with a great singer-songwriter who, together with his band, manages to entertain us with the quality of the musical arrangements and the proposed music.
This sound has the ability to transport you to a parallel universe in fact Jacob Rountree was able to find his music and has created a unique and ethereal musical limbo around his vision.
Absolutely recommended to everyone.
