Jacob Whitesides
Humble, Gracious, and Genuine are just a few of the words you will hear fans use to describe You Tube Sensation Jacob Whitesides.

Whitesides is a singer songwriter from Knoxville, Tennessee. Jacob was first inspired at a Bluegrass festival in 2008, and ever since then he knew he wanted to do music for a living! Following the festival, Jacob set out to learn how to play guitar and sing. After playing around his hometown area of East Tennessee for awhile, two years ago, Jacob started uploading cover songs to You Tube as a hobby. Six million views plus later, here we are. He is now 16 and is having a blast traveling and meeting his fans known as "Whitesiders" all over the country.

Jacob is an experienced guitar player and singer who puts favorable twists on covers and is currently writing his own songs for an album in nearby Nashville with the likes of Ernie Halter and other Music Row elites. Jacob also loves to play other instruments such as drums, ukulele, and electric lead.

Jacob was voted Knoxville Tennessee's "Best Young Voice" of the year for 2011 in the junior voice competition for a good reason. In 2012, Jacob auditioned and made the first cut in the Fox Television music competition series X-Factor in front of judges Simon Cowell, Britney Spears, Demi Lovato and music industry icon L.A Reid. Since then, Jacob has been out on the road perfecting his craft playing a variety of shows, events, and festivals all over the US.
