‘Highest Bidder’ by Jacob Jeffries is one of those unique songs that I love because they are different than anything that any of the submissions I hear. ‘Highest Bidder’ is has a similarity to Ball Park Music who I adore. Jacob;s new album ‘Mother Land’ has many guest appearances and many of the songs are inspired by his mum. Check out ‘Highest Bidder’ below.

Jacob Jeffries’ new album Mother Land, includes 13 new songs with guest appearances by Theo Katzman (Vulfpeck), Arianna Powell (Black Eyed Peas), and Hayley Jane Batt (BORNS). With his unique ability to craft clever and relatable lyrics alongside memorable melodies, Jacob brings genuine passion and an unmistakable brand of energy to his recordings. His debut studio album, “Tell Me Secrets”, saw success after the single “Suffocate my Heart” was chosen as an MTV Buzzworthy track. Jacob has shared the stage with Gavin DeGraw, Pentatonix, Allen Stone, & Andy Grammer, and has been featured at SXSW, Wanee Music Fest, and CMJ Music Marathon. Mother Land kicks off energetically with “Whatever It Takes” – a plea for stability, the want & need to settle down with someone special. “Again and Again” unravels like a lost The Civil Wars track, oozing with emotion as it recounts the dramatic finish to a poisonous relationship. With a storytelling style reminiscent of Billy Joel & Elvis Costello, “Say You Need” invites the listener into a captivating classic boy meets girl tale, with a melody that feels familiar enough, you can’t help but sing along.
Jacob, on titling his new album, “I searched for a common theme. The thread woven through them all, through everything for me, my mom. Some of them written when she was still alive, some of them since she’s gone. But certainly without her, these songs couldn’t be.”
