Jacob Acosta has been a national performing artist in Arizona for over a decade. He has worked with legendary producer, John Vanderslice, been featured on NPR, played dozens of festivals across the U.S., and has released 12 records in the styles of blues, indie-shoegaze, pop, deep house, americana, and folk since 2008 by his own namesake along with the groups Mason, HYTS, Roll Acosta, and Race You There. As a multi-instrumentalist Jacob performed and recorded piano, voice, guitar, timpani, keyboards, bass, and auxiliary percussion on his upcoming release ‘Desert Sounds’. Jacob also recreates and arranges his musical masterpieces live as a looping soloist, a duo, trio, and a full band. The Desert Sounds album itself starts with a prelude showcasing animals sounds of the Southwest in a dawn to dusk sequence, and ends with an instrumental finale featuring musical motifs from all songs on the record. ‘Desert Sounds’ is a cinematic ode to the Southwest desert with a collection of musical stories that pay tribute to Arizona and the greater Sonoran region.
