Why do my pants keep ripping?
April 13, 2023

I have a problem. Literally every pair of jeans I has rips within a year of buying it. Am I clumsy, yes? Do I wear them almost every day? Yes. Do I accept these as the reason? No. Instead, I wrote a song about it :)

Breedlove Artist
February 1, 2021

So anybody who knows me as a guitarist knows that I absolutely love my Breedlove acoustic guitar. Her name is Callin and she’s been with me for over half of my life now. She’s the best. 
Which is why I am truly unbelievably excited to announce that I am now an *Official Breedlove Artist*! Click the photo for a link to my artist profile on their website.

Young Hero is not usually a stand-out role, but he is here. True, he has some of the better Sondheim songs, and Jacob Shipley manages dewy innocence, affability and a sweet fulsome tenor; the addition of a guitar to the Rodgers & Hart styled “Love, I Hear” is an adroit touch.

-The Ithaca Times

“Endearing… Highly Engaging… Jacob superbly touches on feelings of anxiety, frustration, confusion, and isolation."

- Nexus Music Blog

"As Jack, Jacob Shipley has boundless energy, fine dance skills and an impressive singing voice. He also brings abundant boyish charm to the role, and a fine sense of comedy."

-The Baltimore Sun
