Since arriving in Montreal, Paul Jacobs has cemented a growing reputation as one of the city’s truly prolific, eccentric artists, both as the drummer of Pottery and through fronting his own five-piece band.

His sound includes the hooks and rhythms you’d expect from classic rock legends i.e. The Byrds, Fleetwood Mac, and Neil Young, while staying true to his unconventional personal style of composition and production you’d find with artists like Arthur Russel, Kurt Vile and Daniel Johnston. Combining his passion for art and music, modern renaissance man Paul Jacobs pushes through boundaries creating timeless albums.
Awards & Recognition
Nominated in the category Artist of the Year, GAMIQ (2021)
Nominated in the category Rock Album of the Year for Pink Dogs on the Green Grass, GAMIQ (2021)
Pink Dogs on Green Grass is his latest, a highly entertaining album of lightly psychedelic DIY pop that wears its warm, low-fi production like a bathrobe you never end up taking off after getting out of the bath.
Rêvasseur sur Day to Day et Underneath the Roses, plus rugueux et échevelé sur Most Delicious Drink et Cherry, passionnément rock sur les parfaites Everything’s Fine et Your Last Words. Il y a beaucoup d’enthousiasme dans ces foisonnantes chansons. 4/5
‘Pink Dogs…’ by rights, should herald Paul Jacobs as a true cult favourite.
Jacobs is a musician with an abundance of talent and a melting pot of influences who knows what he’s going for on every track […]. On Pink Dogs on the Green Grass, Jacobs has put himself up there with other psych-rock solo wonders like White Fence, Ty Segall and Morgan Delt. 8/10
Pink Dogs on the Green Grass bursts at the seams with twinkly keys, acoustic jangle, and clopping bongos, accentuating its sly hooks with sounds from a Summer of Love revival.
Jacobs has wound up creating something more thoughtful, melodious, and organic than he has before. The result is a welcoming warmth of hazy percussion-driven psychedelic rock, showcasing his vast multi-instrumentalist talent and creativity.
