"On the Upper West Side, Jeff Jacobs has been treating his neighbors to 7 p.m. concerts from his girlfriend’s fire escape on West 100th Street (now they’re more pop-ups) using a small amount of amplification, a bevy of instruments and a catalog of crowd-pleasing hits from The Beatles, Whitney Houston and Justin Timberlake.
Dozens of people gather every day on the wide cross street below to listen. In recent weeks, as the pandemic’s grip on the city has eased, people have loosened up and danced a little more, Jacobs reports. Songs about New York — from Frank Sinatra to Jay-Z — are always a hit."
"'Enjoy The View' is in the upper echelon of albums I've received...brilliant."
- Anthony Famiglietti of WEHM Radio
The son of an opera singer and a poet, you might say Jeff Jacobs was bred for songwriting. Jeff has been winning over audiences since the release of his debut EP, “Enjoy The View” in 2010, of which several songs were featured on MTV's "Teen Mom 2." Jeff's EP was selected one of AOLMusic.com's featured albums of the week, and was among a dozen albums streamed worldwide alongside names such as R.E.M, Tony Lucca, and Hanz Zimmer.
Jeff frequently plays solo, or with his band "Jeff Jacobs n' Friends" at venues throughout NYC, performing his catalogue of original songs, plus 1,000+ covers at such venues as The Bitter End and Rockwood Music Hall. He volunteers with Musicians On Call, providing music for hospital patients at their bedside. He has also done modeling shoots for Samson.
Throughout his career, Jeff's music has touched many hearts. Through his successes, Jeff continues to be humbled by the amazing talent and warmth of the NYC music community. He currently resides in New York City, where he makes a living writing, performing and recording music.
