Jacob Frost is a storyteller and music is his medium. As a composer, guitarist, and vocalist, he weaves together disparate styles and concepts to build a unique sound-world for every musical tale he spins. Inspired by film, literature, and philosophy, Jacob’s music explores ideas such as mortality (Time), identity (Illyria), and typology (In the Fullness of Time). Jacob’s works have been performed at events such as the International Computer Music Conference and Electronic Music Midwest and have been commissioned by Opera on Tap – Oklahoma City and the University of Oklahoma Helmerich School of Drama. Jacob earned his Bachelor of Art in Music from Drury University, where he studied with Carlyle Sharpe, and his Master of Fine Art in Music Composition from the University of Oklahoma, where he studied with Marvin Lamb and Konstantinos Karathanasis. Jacob currently resides in Oklahoma City where he works as a freelance composer, teacher, and music director.
