Shaun Jacobs is an award-winning musician, writer, and producer.
Originally from South Africa, where he received critical acclaim for several chart-topping hits, inclduing a SAMA® (South African Music Award) for Best Adult Contemporary Album and a nomination for both Best Producer and Best Engineer, Shaun has since moved to Los Angeles, laying the groundwork for global success.
Having been raised overseas playing guitar, drums, piano, and bass, Shaun has summoned a new era of music, applying a myriad of fresh new influences onto western rock n’ roll. Merging into the music scene under the guidance of his Opera-singing father, Shaun’s earliest exposure to vocals came from inside of the home. His brother, also a producer, would often ask Shaun to help with mixing tracks. From there, Shaun realized that he had a real knack for shuffling beats, inspiring him to commit to music artistry full-time.
Since moving to the US, Shaun has received recognition for his versatile sound, working alongside top songwriters in both Los Angeles and Nashville. An expert at captivating audiences with his cool and bluesy undertones, Shaun recently co-wrote the song ‘YOUNGR’ with Brazilian DJ Bruno Martini. The celebrated hit, which has accumulated over 16M streams since its launch, was produced by Timbaland and features Shaun on vocals and guitar. Following his success on this track, Shaun’s music has been featured in various campaigns including BMW and Ralph Lauren X Bitmoji. On November 13, 2020, he will be releasing a single from the Ralph Lauren X Bitmoji 2020 collaboration, titled ‘Look At Me Now,’ with an anticipated Christmas-themed album to follow on December 4, 2020.
Looking ahead, Shaun is thrilled to share more with his audience, doubling down on what he does best: being a multi-talented creative with a deep appreciation for the evolution of music.
