Jacob Whitesides' sophomore EP, 2015's A Piece of Me, is the singer/songwriter's first album of all-original material. Showcasing his earnest, passionate style and soulful vocals, the album follows his similarly inclined mini-album of cover tunes, 2014's 3 AM: The EP. With his popular YouTube videos have garnered over ten million views, the 17-year-old Whitesides has quickly developed into a thoughtful musician with a knack for delivering romantic, heartfelt, and lyrical songs. As with his videos and prior recordings, A Piece of Me finds the Knoxville, Tennessee native playing his emotive brand of acoustic pop. Included are the songs "Billboard (If I’m Honest)," "Let's Be Birds," "Rumors," "Ohio," "Not My Type at All," and "Words."
