Episode 61: Pi Jacobs
Air date: 12.5.2012
Pi Jacobs' confident but tasteful singing style is a breath of fresh air in an age of diva singers who have themselves convinced that they're getting paid by the note. She can torch it up with the best of them with blue note runs, a bit of grit and strategically placed vibrato, and her songs are custom fit to showcase a respect for musical integrity. This approach has served her well: her songs have been placed over 60 times in television, film and advertising spots. So odds are if you haven't heard of her you have heard her music. She has four albums under her belt and a new record on the way in early 2013 that pushes her music into some new territory thanks to collaboration with producer Eugene Toale, who marries his background in hip hop with Jacobs' accessible brand of smoldering new millennium rock.
