David Jacobs-Strain is known for both his virtuosity and spirit of emotional abandon; his live show, featuring Bob Beach’s haunting or driving harmonica, moves from humorous, subversive blues, to delicate balladry, and then swings back to swampy rock and roll. It’s a range that ties Jacobs-Strain to his own generation and to guitar-slinger troubadours like Robert Johnson and Jackson Browne. The Washington Post said of David Jacobs-Strain “His acoustic and electric guitar work is crisp and driven, and his voice can rise to a soulful pitch or fall quietly in sync with a loping beat. His imagery-rich tales—well, it’s not hard to imagine some of them being covered by the likes of John Hammond Jr . . . . or Boz Scaggs. . .” David Jacobs-Strain turns new generations on to the complex yet simple beauty of the blues.
