LYRIC MAGAZINE: LYRICREVIEWS - CRIS JACOBS’ NEW ALBUM ‘COLOR WHERE YOU ARE'

On Color Where You Are, Cris Jacobs cooks up a funky, groove-filled, soulful country stew. Owing as much to the psychedelia of the Grateful Dead and the Southern Rock of Little Feat as any traditional country act, Jacobs brings the best part of a jamband sensibility to his compositions. They feel organic, they breathe, they’re well-paced. Jacobs works well with his band, and together they really make the music feel alive. Jacobs stands out, though, as he plays lead guitar and sings lead vocals.
