Jacob Sartorius, Oklahoma’s sensational pop artist is bringing his signature sounds to the Newport Music Hall!
Rolf Jacob Sartorius was born in Oklahoma in 2002 and is a singer and internet personality. He began his journey in the performance arts by taking acting classes and performing in musical theater. He started posting videos on Vine and his breakthrough came from the lip syncing videos he put up on Musical.ly (a video social network app for video creation, messaging, and live broadcasting). He cites Justin Bieber as a big influence and said in an interview, “I think it's a big honor. I think it's kinda crazy, like, in a good way, because I've looked up to him since I was a little kid, and listening to all his music. He's a great artist, and people like that are the people that I look up to. He's just a great performer, great dance moves, great vocals. I've learned a lot from people like him and Shawn Mendes and Ed Sheeran, people like that, those are just, like, people that I've always looked up to. I've learned a lot, a lot, a lot from Justin.” He’s had a stellar career with 1 extended play, 4 singles, and he’s been nominated for a Teen Choice Award (for Choice Muser) and an iHeart Radio Music Award.
