The first radio single set for release on July 1, 2008 “East” spotlights George Jacobs talents with a mix of smooth jazz and a soft rock approach that blends an amazing acoustic and electric guitar playing that sounds like sax or vocals. This project is sure to crossover into multiple radio genres and will generate mass consumer appeal as it targets both a young and old audience demographic.
