Shaun Jacobs Band have been hard at work in studio recording their new album released in early 2016, and on the strength of the new material have just signed a management deal in LA.
This tour sees them launching their new album KALEIDOSCOPE.
Shaun started out as a solo musician which is how he recorded the breakout album Love Can and before that Paper Wings – albums on which he played every instrument and recorded, mixed and produced everything himself. But it was when he started touring the music and was joined by Andrew Sowter on drums and Craig Sparks on bass that they formed Shaun Jacobs Band. After Craig’s departure, Shaun and Andrew kept the name and became the duo they are today, and the special chemistry they share is very evident. “We have developed something very special as a unit and as friends” says Shaun, “it has changed the way I write and put music together, and we are really excited to take what has been happening on the stage and pour it into this album”
It was the launch of the smash hit single Love Can that catapulted the act across the radio and TV airwaves of SA. The Love Can album won Adult Contemporary Album of the Year at the 2014 SAMAs (South African Music Awards) – the highest accolade in South Africa. In 2014 Shaun also received SAMA nominations for Best Producer and Best Engineer.
