Jacob Dinesen from Denmark is just 25 years old, but writes songs and sings like he is twice the age. Jacob Dinesen is a young storyteller with an incredible voice and an old soul. He plays an Americana inspired crossover between rock, folk and country. He grew up in Tønder, in the rural area of Denmark. Far away from the big cities. Jacob took his first steps on the soil of the Tønder Festival (Danish Festival of folk, roots, traditional music and Americana), which has influenced and formed him ever since.
Back in Denmark Jacob Dinesen has released 3 albums, been certified gold and platinum, and is on heavy radio rotation. He is selling albums in a time and market where everyone else is counting streams. He has also been selling out shows all over the country the last 3 years, playing venues and even arenas, along headlining festivals.
Besides Denmark Jacob Dinesen has also played Americana Fest in London, Germany, Norway, Sweden and Faroe Island. Not bad for a kid who grew up as far away from the big city as possible in the rural area of Tønder, Denmark.
In 2020 Jacob Dinesen will write and record his fourth album. In the fall 2020 he will give his band a rest, and head out on a solo acoustic tour. 28 solo gigs hitting the first venue he ever played, and then moving into bigger halls.
