Born and raised in Johnson City, Tennessee, Hammond B-3 Artist, Jacob Tipton, cultivated his talent playing soul gospel music in the church as a young boy. Jacob specializes in the vintage Hammond B-3 organ, keyboards, harmonica and background vocals. Heavily influenced by his musical hero, Billy Preston, Jacob adopted Billy’s ability to play any kind of music with any kind of artist. Versatility is a cornerstone of Jacob’s musicianship, which landed him several performance and session opportunities.

Jacob showcased his artistry in Northeast Tennessee with the Jacob Tipton Trio—drums, saxophone and Jacob kicking the pedals on Hammond B-3. The trio sold out almost every show and venue in East Tennessee, and Jacob recorded their work with Grammy-Award winning producer, Martin Walters. Meanwhile on Sunday mornings, Jacob could be found leading worship at The Lighthouse For Jesus Church and serving on the worship team at Grace Fellowship Church and Highlands Fellowship Church.

In 2013, he moved to Nashville after establishing his name in the Appalachian Region. On his second night in town, he was asked to play live and in-studio with renowned Grammy-nominated, contemporary blues artist, Stacy Mitchhart. Word spread quickly about his playing and Jacob became dubbed, “one of Nashville’s premier studio and live performance musicians.” He performed and/or recorded with Grammy Award-winner, Mike Farris, country legend, T. Graham Brown, Jim Belushi, Shirley King (the daughter of the late B.B. King), Roosevelt Collier (Allman Brothers, Lee Boys), Al Green, Paulina Jayne, Anthony Gomes, Shaun Murphy (Eric Clapton, Bob Seger), Robert Randolph, Don “D.C.” Curry, Sista’ Ruth, Swampgrass Revival, Watson Grove Baptist Church, Wess Morgan (COLC), Lizzie Morgan (COLC, Lauren Daigel), Celebration of Life Church, and Fireplace Fellowship Church. 

Endorsed by the Hammond Organ Company, Leslie Speakers, Lounsberry Pedals Axe Wrap, and Booker Lab, Jacob tours all over the world featuring these products. He is currently working with T. Graham Brown, while playing sessions with various artists.
