David W. Jacobsen

David W. Jacobsen performs and records a diverse range of music. His lyrics include humorous stories and anecdotes as well as serious commentary and musings on social and psychological concerns. He performs live accompanying himself on acoustic guitar and entertaining his audiences with an amusing banter.

His recent albums start in the acoustic singer/songwriter genre, but branch out to include synth driven pop, guitar heavy rock, and difficult to classify experimentation. His newest album, Walking Away From Wonderland, deals with losing touch as the years go by with friends, lovers, or even yourself. Some of the loss is humorously described in the form of break up songs where the narrator is happy the other person is gone. Others express longing for people, places, and times that are forever out of reach. However, not all of the songs adhere to this central theme and the album's content and mood vary considerably.

David W. Jacobsen has been writing and performing music for over fifteen years. He studied at Berklee College of Music and has both an excellent understanding of music theory as well as the good sense not to use it. His album Footprints was voted the top 10th album of 2005 by Upstage Magazine. His song "Christmas in Jersey City" received an honor award in the Great American Song Contest. He has recorded over ten albums on his Zbokth Productions label and is currently recording his next release.
