Discovery: Livi Jacobs

Hailing from Austria and now based in Punta Gorda, Florida, USA, Livi Jacobs is a folk singer songwriter who has just caught my attention thanks to her third single release. Exploring the story of a relationship coming to an end, it’s called Keep Quiet.

By Graeme Smith

Keep Quiet was written four years ago but went on the backburner until recently, when Livi decided to revive it. She’s beautifully rendered its heart-breaking story through acoustic guitar and Livi’s soulful vocals. You can’t help but fall in love a little while listening to it, and its cathartic chorus is sublime.

Livi’s previous two singles have received a warm reception on social media, radio and by playlisters, and she’s got plenty more on the way for us.

Livi completed Keep Quiet with the help of her husband, Steven James, in their makeshift home studio. You can give it a listen below.
