Humor: not exactly a standard part of the acoustic singer/songwriter vocabulary.
I write what makes me laugh: relationships, modern society and life as a babyboomer.
Musical Influences:Beatles, Arlo Guthrie, Loudon Wainwright III, Steve Goodman, Weird Al Yankovic, Groucho Marx.
I have received airplay on local and national radio, most recently on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio's "LaughUSA." Since 2001, Drew Jacobs and Swingbatter have regularly appeared on the Nationally Syndicated "Dr. Demento Radio Show. I have been performing as a solo acoustic singer/songwriter since 2005, and have been a member of BMI since 2007.
"Easy Listening For The Hard Of Hearing" certainly delivers some chuckles."-

"Jacobs has a knack for honing in on the funny aspects of everyday life."- Michael Eck, Albany Times Union
"Allergic" is a niche record aimed at folks who follow modern comedy as much as they do modern music"-Michael Eck, Albany Times Union
"Drew Jacobs – is a guy who plays comedic songs but what sets him apart from a lot of comedy songwriters is that he can actually really play the guitar and sing. He had a couple numbers that had the entire room singing along." -Tom Lewis, Professional Comedian (he's not kidding!)
"Jacobs sure knows how to write and sing a funny song and tell an interesting story while doing it. There is no way you can’t totally enjoy this funny song CD." www.theseriouscomedysite.com
"Thanks for the tunes!"- Dr. Demento Nationally Syndicated Radio Show
