Jacob Haller

Jacob Haller has been a fixture of the Rhode Island music scene for the past ten years, and has been frequently featured in popular shows such as AS220's Empire Revue and Common Fence Point Music's annual Gathering of Fiddlers & Fishermen.

In 2010 he was nominated for 'Best Singer/Songwriter' in the Providence Phoenix, and, in 2011, his song 'The Ballad of Anne Hutchinson' was one of those selected to be played in 'Singing About Providence', a show celebrating Providence's 375th anniversary put on by HEAR In Rhode Island and the Rhode Island Songwriters Association.

"Jacob Haller does music as though he were the secret love-child of Warren Zevon and Burl Ives, and while this is impossible, I'm pretty sure he wouldn't let that stop him. Nor should you let it stop you. Enjoy the music!" -- Jeffrey Channing Wells, "Skin Horse" co-author

"Jacob Haller is not only a talented musician and songwriter, he's also a talented songwriter and musician." -- Harper Johnson, Co-Host of The Blues Record podcast

"Haller ranges with hints of Leon Redbone, Greg Brown and Paul Geremia, smoothly pulling out lines that are as catchy as a smile. The tunes themselves never try too hard. They are just fresh and somewhat jolly sounding." -- Jonathan Cook, Turley Publications, October 27, 2009
