greg jacobs / Bio

As part of a group of "red dirt" musicians who migrated to Stillwater Oklahoma in the late 1970's - a rag-tag outfit that includes Jimmy LaFave, Tom Skinner, Bob Childers, and the Red Dirt Rangers - singer/songwriter Greg Jacobs helped set the standard for great Okie songwriting. His landmark CD, "Reclining With Age" brought Jacobs to an audience far beyond his Oklahoma home, and his new recording, "Lucky Live", a mostly best-of live collection, promises to be his most successful collection. "Lucky Live" features Travis Linville, John Fullbright, and Terry Buffalo Ware, assisting Jacobs on most of his best known songs including "Farmer's Luck", "A Little Rain Will Do", "Okie Wind", "Enjoy The Ride", and "Lookin' At The Moon", as well as newer songs "C Chord", "Here To Tulsa", and "Eyes Of A Child". Some call Jacobs the red Dirt crooner because of his easy goin' style, and that just might be right. He is the smoothest of all the red dirt troubadours, laying down a solid Okie groove, on songs that are both historic and personal. Recent cuts by Cody Canada and the Departed (A Little Rain Will Do) and Jason Boland and the Stragglers (Farmer's Luck) have brought Jacobs' songs to a whole new and more youthful crowd. Greg Jacobs is back in the conversation, back at the forefront of Oklahoma singer/songwriters. One can find Greg Jacobs CD's at cdbaby and on iTunes.
