Jacob Haller

Jacob Haller has been a fixture of the Rhode Island music scene for the past ten years, and has been frequently featured in popular shows such as AS220's Empire Revue and Common Fence Point Music's annual Gathering of Fiddlers & Fishermen.

In 2010 he was nominated for 'Best Singer/Songwriter' in the Providence Phoenix, and, in 2011, his song 'The Ballad of Anne Hutchinson' was one of those selected to be played in 'Singing About Providence', a show celebrating Providence's 375th anniversary put on by HEAR In Rhode Island and the Rhode Island Songwriters Association.

He has to date released five CDs: 2015's Cabin Fever, 2014's Time To Break Up The Band, 2011's Circumstantial Evidence and Covers EP, and 2009's Mistaken Identity.

"With 'Time To Break Up The Band', Jacob does one of the hardest things a songwriter can attempt, and he does it successfully: he takes forms that seem familiar and imposes completely his own unique sensibility. The resulting songs are full of wry stories that take unexpected turns; they're truly original, and they do not disappoint."
