Tasty sounds emitted from the Gibson Guitar Showroom November 5, where BMI hosted an Acoustic Lunch to celebrate Florida’s own, Jacob Jeffries of the Jacob Jeffries Band. Jeffries performed songs off his latest release, Wonderful, produced by Grammy award-winning Sebastian Krys.

Jacob Jeffries started playing the piano at the age of five, and by 10 was writing original music, which lead to a publishing deal with Warner Chappell at the age of 17. At 19, Jacob has spent the last year recording with Grammy Award-winning producers Sebastian Krys and Dan Warner. He was also honored to be added to the Baldwin Piano artist roster.
