jacob russo

Jacob Russo is a veteran singer-songwriter who is about to release his first new album in over a decade. He made his professional solo recording debut in 2011 with the LP Start Again Somewhere. That record introduced a talented musician and lyricist with a knack for dissecting the human condition.

Although Jacob Russo has stayed away from the recording studio in recent years, he has not been silent. Based in Denver, Colorado, he has become a staple of that city’s vibrant music scene building a reputation as a dynamic and engaging performer and songwriter.

“Taller Than Me” is the current single from Jacob Russo, released worldwide via all major streaming services on February 23, 2024. The single is also the title track from Jacob Russo’s forthcoming album, scheduled to be released in March. A culmination of years of artistic evolution, the LP is a tribute to Jacob’s younger brother who passed away.

The track opens on a gospel vibe, with dreamy vocal harmonies accompanying the singer as he addresses his brother on the event of his own wedding day. Soon the beat drops on a Nashville ensemble laying down a downtempo Americana swing, as steel guitar and organ paint periphery. On the mic, Jacob delivers a heartfelt and soulful ode to familial love.
