Mike Jacoby and the new CD "Long Beach Calling"!!!
Mike Jacoby is a Long Beach-based Singer-Songwriter who’s been performing on the scene for years. Armed with an undying love for rock ‘n‘ roll music, Mike Jacoby is a multi-faceted musical artist dedicated to showcasing his brilliant songwriting.
That’s the most important part because the song always comes first. With a love for music born in classic rock ‘n‘ roll, his writing is firmly rooted in the Americana and Alt-Country veins. Mike Jacoby always brings a fresh and unique perspective into the story of the song. His songs range from insightful to silly, from harrowing to hilarious. They can make you think and they can make you laugh – often at the same time.
Mike Jacoby is back now with a brand new CD - “Long Beach Calling”. This follow-up to 2016’s “NorthEastSouthWest” is an altogether different animal. Grittier. More Electric. More Dynamic. Songs that jump out at the listener – compelling and exciting.
“Long Beach Calling” starts with a song that pays homage both to the wonderful city of Long Beach, CA and to the Clash and ends with a song that pays homage to the Elvis impersonator in all of us. In between, there are tales of perseverance and hope; fractured relationships; death; super-models; BBQ Pits and a concise and accurate history of the Rolling Stones. What else would you want in an album?
“Long Beach Calling” is yet another fantastic collection of songs put together by Mr. Jacoby. And apart from the fabulous violin of Ann DeJarnett and the fantastic piano pounding of Art Bailey Jr., “Long Beach Calling” was produced, recorded and mixed solely by Mike Jacoby – all in his humble lonesome.
