About Jacob Lee
Jacob doesn’t remember a time when he wasn’t singing and says that it was a ukulele given to him by his bass-playing father that solidified his love for music. Despite modest vocal training, Jacob covers a wide range… of styles from contemporary pop and ballads to swing and rap.
Jacob, 19, is still pinching himself after his dream debut in blind auditions on The Voice last night, which saw musical Midas Will.i.am spin his chair around during the first few seconds of Jacob’s rendition of Guy Sebastian’s Battle Scars.
“I’ve grown up with Black Eyed Peas. I knew who he was, so there was a massive respect there. I’m overwhelmed he even turned around.”
Comfortable playing covers and originals on guitar and singing everything from pop and ballads to swing and rap, Jacob said he laboured over his choice of song for the blind audition.
“It took me a couple of months, to be quite honest, thinking about it and what would show my voice off the most. I settled on Battle Scars because it showed my voice and challenged me."
