About Ryan T Jacobs

singer/songwriter of Melville

Ryan T Jacobs

Ryan T Jacobs is the singer/songwriter behind Portland indie mainstay Melville. Having spent seven years living and touring all over Europe, Jacobs speaks four languages, and channels his world travel experiences into his songwriting. His lyrics and dynamic vocals are enhanced by his fiery performance and belief in the songs that he brings to the stage.

Jacobs' sound is neither restrictive to nor a derivative of the current era. The music has been compared to the likes of Tom Petty, Snow Patrol, and REM. Above all, Jacobs' believes in transcendence through music and aims to move his audience to believe the same, whether with his band Melville or solo.


Recorded with Gregg Williams (The Dandy Warhols, Sheryl Crow, Blitzen Trapper) and mastered by Paul Gold (The War on Drugs, Grizzly Bear), Melville's album The New Zero was meticulously crafted over the course of two years. From that effort, Jacobs' songs "Heart" and "Claws Out" debuted at sold-out Portland Trailblazers games; they played the Portland Party at SXSW; and they shared the stage with the likes of Collective Soul, 3 Doors Down, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Wilco side-project The Autumn Defense, Minor Alps, and Murder By Death.
