Pi Jacobs is a singer-songwriter you've probably heard, even if you haven't heard of her... With over 60 Song placements, Pi’s music has
been licensed to MTV, Oxygen, and Nickelodeon shows, commercials for
Macy’s the San Francisco Acedemy of Art, and the in-store retail music
provider, EOS. She has been heard in the films The Princess of Nebraska
(Dir. Wayne Wang - Joy Luck Club). The Appointment, and Fixing Rhonda,
and most recently, her single “Trying to be Loved” aired on ABC Family’s
hit show, Pretty Little Liars.
The native San Franciscan has
also put in serious road miles, touring the US and Europe, and
relocating to first New York City, then to Los Angeles. Pi has worked
with several star producers, including Pfilbryte (TommyBoy - Ignition),
and Randy Wine (U2, Aretha Franklin).
Pi’s latest album, UrbaniCana,
was collaboration with renowned producer Eugene Toale, whose credits
include Kanye West, Mya, Brandy, and Raekwon, and features The Beastie
Boy’s drummer Fredo Ortiz on every track. Eugene's hip hop sensibilities
and Pi's rootsy, rock-diva vocals, create a new sound that is both
urban and americana. UrbaniCana, captures the heart of the homesick city
dweller, yearning for simpler times, as well as the isolated artsy
types, alone in their American small towns.
