Avi Jacob was a regular name on the Folk Radio UK playlist, back in the days of our 24 Hour stream, after he contacted us back in 2014 and we were introduced to his music via his album So Hard to Reach You. Although raised in New England he ran away from home in his teen years and ended up in Boston. Spending the next several years in & out of hospitals with a genetic disease, Avi was mostly confined to his bedroom where he spent his time & energy creating songs.
Avi was recently awarded the Ashir Music Fellowship which led to recording with Simone Felice (producer of the Billboard #1 Lumineers album) & members of the Felice Brothers. His new EP, titled Surrender is due for release soon but for those of you wanting to hear some tunes then make sure you check out his Bandcamp page where we discovered this gem, One and Only, which features on the new EP:
