Jacob Russo, Korby Lenker, Justin Roth

Thu, Apr 06 - 8:00 pm

Jacob Russo hails from the acoustic corn fields of Western Colorado, but has since embraced the atmosphere of life in the city in his recent home of Denver. Although he calls the Front Range home, musical explorations have taken him far and wide, helping craft his unique blend of rustic indie-folk. These experiences forged melodic stylings, bringing to mind soft-focus sunsets and felt-tipped sensibilities. Jacob's live performances are tinged with a sort of hopeless honesty found only in the most genuine of folk musicians.

"If you don't want to feel the wind on your face, be at a Baptist church on Sunday morning, or be transported back to a time when all was innocence and possibility you probably don't want to listen to Jacob Russo."
-Peter Himmelman

Jacob has shared the bill with folk artists such as Gregory Alan Isakov, SHEL and Caleb Hawley. He is a fixture of the Rocky Mountain Folk Festival, having participated in the Songschool for a number of years. Notable venues such as the Boulder Theater and Belly Up Aspen have hosted his musical performances. Music from his 2011 release "Start Again Somewhere" was used in "where the Yellowstone Goes", an environmentally-conscious documentary by visionary filmmaker Hunter Weeks. Jacob currently lives and records in a basement apartment on Capitol Hill, spending his days composing clever ditties from inside jokes and moth-eaten references to modern culture.
