Discovery: Rich Jacques

Montecito is a new, acoustic song from American folk singer Rich Jacques, with the track being written about time he spent in Montecito during the pandemic.

By Jane Howkins

The track sounds quite like a typical modern folk song, with a hauntingly beautiful sound to it. It’s quite sparse in terms of instrumentation (the piano and acoustic guitar are the main instruments played on the song), but this works well with the slow tempo, and is part of what makes Montecito sound so gorgeous. Rich also has a lovely voice – check it out on the track below!
