Mixing humorous social commentary with melancholy reflection, David W. Jacobsen performs and records catchy, mostly acoustic songs that combine poetry, satire, and narrative storytelling. Entertaining without crossing the line in to novelty, his musings on social and psychological concerns have connected with people all over the world. He performs live accompanying himself on acoustic guitar and amusing his audiences with an enjoyable banter.
His new digital-only album, Expecting Different Results, contains acoustic-based songs that address disappointment or surprise with sardonic humor, while pondering whether rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic is actually a perfectly good use of time if you really like chair symmetry. Some songs hew more to the literal meaning of things not turning out as you expect, and some songs convey a general jadedness.
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. He has recorded over ten albums on his Zbokth Productions label and is currently recording his next release.
