Pop singer/songwriter Jacob Whitesides will perform as a special guest of R5 on August 20 at The Henderson Pavilion.
One of MTV’s New Artists To Watch, Jacob is on the road in support of his EP “A Piece Of Me.” Without a focus track, radio play and literally no marketing money spent, Jacob’s EP has already sold 20,000 copies and reached #1 on the iTunes U.S. Singer/Songwriter chart, #3 on the Pop album chart, #5 on the Overall chart and landed at the top of the charts in the UK, Canada, Portugal, Australia, Brazil and France.

What separates Jacob from his peers is that he has full control of every aspect of his career (songwriting, merchandising, touring, etc) and is the CEO of his own record label, Double U Records. Double U Records recently partnered with BMG who will handle global label operations.

Jacob – who is only 17 years old and from the smoky mountains outside of Knoxville, TN – is rewriting the rules of the music industry. Jacob’s unprecedented independent success has been accomplished with literally no marketing money or radio campaigns to date, and simply relies on his genuine dialogue with his millions of devoted social followers around the globe.
Wired Magazine appreciates Jacob as an innovator changing the world and promoting disruptive thinking and radical ideas, and has asked him to speak at their annual flagship event “Wired2015” in London this October.
