“Jacob Green isn’t fabricating when he titles his album, “Travelin’ Soul”. This guy has been on the road for years, seeing America through the classic troubadour eyes, informing his music with the essence of the land. This album, while all blues, features varied takes on the genre, taking the listener on a path through Americana topics and tropes, from the past to the boomin' and stompin’ present. As much as this album is not to be missed, don’t pass up a chance to see him LIVE! Travel on Green Brother!”

“I’ve heard it said to “write what you know” when it comes to music. In the case of Jacob Green, that seems to be the case. His latest album “Travelin’ Soul,” that was just finished last week, is well named. Green has spent a good amount of time on the road touring and playing as a one man band.

“Multi-instrumentalist, Jacob Green, will be swinging through the area and playing a show at Sir Benedict's this Monday.

He has toured the country with and has found supports wherever he goes. His soulful and earthy songs are certainly worth seeing for free on a Monday night. His show starts at 8pm and the is all ages.”

“Milwaukee, Wis., musician Jacob Green prefers to keep things simple. No pedals, no effects and nothing that might be mistaken for a frill. “It’s about getting back to the roots of music and where it all came from,” Green says. His stripped-down style — just Green and his instrument of choice, be it acoustic or slide guitar, banjo, Dobro or harmonica — is reminiscent of a modern artist like Ben Harper, but he’s every bit as much influenced by old bluesmen like Robert Johnson or traditional folk and country artists like Steve Earle. Green’s lyrics carry a similar back-to-basics message of distancing ourselves from “this polluted, crazy world we live in,” a theme he explores on his album “Roots Revival Vol. 1,” the first of three he plans to release. The concept came to him in a moment of revelation after a tour van full of his amps, guitars and effects pedals was stolen, leaving Green with little to his name but an acoustic guitar. Turns out, he came to find it was”
