Salomon has produced a very fine instrumental guitar album. He has technique, tone, and passion laced together with very mature writing. You can hear classical influence, groove, and dream-like weaving throughout. His musical sensibility is instantly recognizable.
It’s wonderful to see all your songs back to back. They sound lovely and I can hear the mix of influences in your playing. Very tasty.
Listened to your stuff the other day while driving in the city and was blown away! Your writing is really colourful and expressive! Well done my friend.
In The Valley of Notes is a collection of Salomon's first fingerstyle songs, where the earliest ones were written when he was just 16 years old.
Festivals, private events, restaurants, workshops... The acoustic guitar is a small and portable instrument, capable of moving people at virtually any imaginable location.
Skype lessons are the most convinient way to learn guitar in your own home. As long as you've got a stable internet connection and a webcam you're ready to start.
Salomon Jakobsson has been halied as one of Sweden's most promising young guitarists. Alone, he uses the full guitar to create an imaginative weave of sounds that varies from complex and fiery to peaceful and fluid. The inspiration comes from as wide sources as jazzmetal and impressionism, to 8-bit and minimalism. Genres are merged and with the help of all ten fingers he simultaneously plays bass, melody, harmony and percussive elements, allowing the music to tell the stories it wants to tell.
In 2016 Salomon released his debut album ‘In The Valley of Notes’ and have since then played all around Sweden, but also in countries like Portugal, Denmark, Slovakia and Croatia. Next up is a new album and a continued exploration of the world of music and the guitar.
