Jacob has always had a love for music, which flourished when he got his first banjo at the age of 14. Since then, he has been honing his musical skills playing with local Shenandoah Valley favorites such as Bud's Collective, Banana Express, and Joseph Hott & The Short Mountain Boys. Jacob first picked up bass while in college at Virginia Tech when he was asked to fill in for a band that had an open spot. This opened up a whole new world of musical genres and ideas that he has been pursuing ever since. He now brings his diverse musical background to Circa Blue, where he plays bass and provides harmony vocals.
