Fall 2019 Submissions OPEN

Jacob Whitesides

Singer/songwriter Jacob Whitesides was an underdog fighter from the start. Jacob and his sister were raised in humble upbringings by his strong, selfless mother Becky, in the smoky mountains outside of Knoxville, Tennessee. After learning guitar at a young age and honing in on his vocal skills, Jacob started winning over the Youtube community with his cover videos and, soon after, his original songs. Jacob's undeniable talent, entrepreneurial skills, along with a genuinely devoted dialogue with his zealous fan base (aka Whitesiders), have led him to an unprecedented independent success.
