JACOB COLE is a Lompoc and Santa Barbara based songwriter, guitarist and singer. Previously fronting Saint Anne's Place and King Cole, Jacob grew up on the quiet central coast listening to an eclectic mix of 60’s FM radio and the hits of the 80’s. Fond of the Beatles' sense of melody, the experimentation and mystery of John Fahey, and the song 'Lift Me Up' by Bruce Springsteen - Jacob & his band incorporate it all but update the sound for today.
PAPA BEAR: Constantly striving to explore the boundaries and edges of human emotion, Papa Bear captures a deep perspective into the human experience. Lyrical content covers the gamut of mystery, beauty, and the comedy and tragedy of life. The musical lineage stems from the folk heritage, but ranges broadly.. from Americana and bluegrass, to blues, jazz, and good old rock’n’roll. PB and the Easy Love’s shows typically end in a massive singalong, blurring the boundaries between performer and audience, and inviting all to express themselves.
