The best part of writing for this site is discovering interesting new artists, and today grants me that exact opportunity. Meet Jacob Horn Trio, from Chicago, Illinois!
The 6 piece ska-punk trio has made 2 tracks available for streaming from a forthcoming LP due later this year. I was immediately surprised by the depth of the sound in the two tracks. The band’s bio notes they draw inspiration from ska and soul, and there is a hint of Motown in their lush combination of horns and guitars; complimenting Horn’s distinctive and emotive vocals.
Check out the tracks “Because” and “Catastrophic” below, and let us know what you think!
