Neil Jacobson has always enjoyed the traditional holiday tunes that were part of his childhood. Although he has written and recorded many songs, it’s been a dream of his to compose the ultimate holiday standard. This dream is finally realized with the release of "It's Thanksgiving Time," a new holiday classic.
Neil grew up in Oceanside, New York, and has been involved in music since the age of 7, first playing folk guitar and then drums with his brother, John, a child-prodigy pianist, and continuing to perform with him throughout junior high and high school.
Formal music education continued at Shenandoah University in Virginia and then in New York City at the Manhattan School of Music. He has played in many NYC clubs, and he also formed a partnership with keyboardist Peter Schott with whom he wrote music for jingles, television, and album projects. They collaborated with noted French animation master Jean-Pierre Jacquet and created several animated series, including The Bugs, Frik & Frak, and Deadbeats.
Neil continues to perform and compose in New York.
