Track of the Day: 'Can't Get Enough' by Jacob Koopman
Jacob’s Bali roots provides him with an indie pop style but his early influences such as Dave Grohl and Chris Cornell give an edge to his island vibe. A Singer/Songwriter who started playing drums at 9 years old. Self taught, he also plays the guitar and bass.
Playing a mixture of original and cover music Jacob can be found playing venues around Ireland, along with paying his dues by busking. Having played Castlepalooza and Electric Picnic with previous original bands, in 2016 he decided to break away and commenced his solo career, realising his debut solo EP under his own name.
With a playlist ranging from Radiohead to Hozier, Incubus to Depeche Mode his wide range of influences reflect strongly in his unique sound. Open to collaboration, he worked with Eurovison star Ryan O'Shaughnessy on his debut EP 'Blindfold' and the single Mgctrx.
His latest single "Can't Get Enough", co-Produced by Brian Dwyer and James Gough from "No More Questions" really showcases Koopman's unique ability not to be restricted to one genre.
