“When I was a kid I approached my father and asked him to teach me a song on the guitar. He taught me G, C and D and told me he would show me a Bob Dylan song, but only after I came up with my own chord progression. I suppose my first guitar lesson was also my first experience in writing music.”
-Jacob Vanko

The singer/songwriter was born and raised in the Anthracite Coal Region of Northeast Pennsylvania. The blue-collar towns of the once vibrant valley nestled in Pennsylvania’s slice of the Appalachian Mountains was a compelling backdrop for the young artist’s narrative and poetic songwriting style. An old soul at heart, Jacob found a sense of comfort in performing and writing. Learning to play blues and Folk with his father while being influenced by classic rock and grunge made for a unique evolution in writing, composition and storytelling. Touching on observational themes from first-hand experiences brings a distinct intimacy to the songs audiences relate to and appreciate.
