Musician Jacob Davis Talks Style and How the Music Scene in Louisiana Inspired his Debut Album

Jacob Davis
Today we meet musician Jacob Davis:

Hey all, I’m Jacob Davis. I’m originally from Shreveport, Louisiana. I started playing music in college at Louisiana State University. The music scene in south Louisiana is much like the culture down there…it’s infectious. I loved everything about the slow moving way of life, and the music was just that…with a little bit of funk sprinkled in. It just has a way of making you feel something. The food, the people and the overall spirit of that place. I was drawn to it.

I moved to Nashville a year after graduating from LSU in pursuit of playing music full time. I knew it was what I had to do. After being in Nashville for five years now, I recently signed a record deal with Black River Entertainment. I’m currently in the process of making my debut album and couldn’t be more excited to get it out there.

As for my personal style:

Jeans/Pants: Levi’s 510
I’ve just always worn Levi’s jeans. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

Shirts: All Saints T-shirts
A good buddy of mine in Nashville told me about All Saints. I love them. It’s hard to find a good fitting t-shirt.

Suits: Armani
I like a slimmer fitting suit and Armani are usually a slim fit. And they’re just classy as hell.

Shoes: New Republic Boots and Tony Lama Ostrich Boots
I bought a pair of Tony Lama boots in college and they’re the best boots I’ve ever own. They feel like putting on a sock.

Accessories: Swiss Army Watch
I like that they can be sporty and casual at the same time. And they last forever.

Outerwear: Vintage Remington Outdoor Jacket
I actually found this old jacket in my father-in-law’s closet. I just took it!

Favorite cologne: Acqua Di Gio
I liked the commercial. I just went with it.

Favorite app: The Dan Patrick Show app
I’m a huge DP fan. It’s not always just sports…the Dannetes are hilarious.

Favorite piece of technology: iPhone
Like everyone else’s answer…

Next style/gear purchase: TAG watch
I’ve always wanted one. Saving up as we speak.
