New album Hi-Rise Ranch out on April 14, 20015--Hi-Rise Ranch is LA-based musician, Pi Jacobs’ 6th record and the second time pairing with folks from her 2013 release, Urbanicana. The 6 song CD brings back producer (and keyboard addition), Eugene Toale (Kanye West, Brandy, Mya) along with Beastie Boy’s drummer Fredo Ortiz, Jaime Bishop (Francis Dunnery) on bass and Kel Pritchard on background vocals. This time around, Jacobs plays all of the guitars and there is the addition of Peter Adams on keyboards and Rita Soultanian on background vocals. Hi-Rise Ranch continues with the sound of lusty soul-driven Americana music with a straight up rock and roll punch.
An accomplished rock guitar player and multi-instrumentalist and a lyricist who can create honest emotion, Pi Jacobs credits her crazy and nomadic childhood for keeping her heart open to experiences that turn into songs. “I’m grateful, and my heart is open from all of these experiences, but music has been the one thing I’ve always relied on, my rock and cornerstone. I just want to share, connect and be part of the human experience through my music.”
