Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter and musician Pi Jacobs is amplifying the concert experience on Live From Memphis, an inventive new album and her first for the Blackbird Record Label that places eight original songs alongside the personal stories that shaped them. Recorded with a full band, the project offers a sincere and sometimes funny look at her formative years, her family relationships, and even a few lessons she's learned along the way. A blend of roots-rock swagger and storytelling soul, the music on Live From Memphis comes from Jacob's live taping for Ditty TV, which was filmed without an audience. For the set list, she drew six songs from 2020's Two Truths and a Lie and two others from 2017's A Little Blue. But rather than using the between-songs banter intended for the viewing audience, she took a page from one of her favorite NPR podcasts and decided to share more of herself than ever before.
Pi's music has been featured on DittyTV, NPR, Austin Music TV, American Songwriter Magazine, and nationwide radio including LA's tastemaker KCSN, and NYC's WFUV.
