Featured Artist of the Month: Jacobi
Alabama native, Nathan Brown, has always had a strong love for music. Nathan, who goes by the name Jacobi, developed his craft by singing in church.
Pop acts like Michael Jackson inspired Jacobi to become an entertainer: ”I remember learning how to ‘moonwalk’. You couldn’t tell me nothin’! I ‘moonwalk-ed’ at least 10 times a day after that!”
At the age of 15, Jacobi, took up the piano to further his musical ability. He first began playing out for local groups as well as his church. In 2010, the R&B crooner took his passion one step further as he began recording and uploading cover videos to Youtube.
In September of 2012, Jacobi released his debut EP, The Art of Persuasion. The Independent R&B recording artist uses his incredible vocal skills to craft smooth, soulful tunes.
Jacobi was a finalist and the first place winner of Steve Harvey’s “Sing Your Way to the Neighborhood Awards 2014” this past April. In July, he shared the stage with Chrisette Michele and Marsha Ambrosius at the Father’s Day Explosion Concert. While still early in his career, Jacobi clearly has his sights set on the big stage.
For now, Jacobi is building up momentum and working tirelessly to make his mark in the industry. Alabama natives can catch him on October 3rd, where he will be performing for the “Ultimate Friday 2” at the RSA Activity Center in Montgomery, AL.
