Jacob Flores is a singer/songwriter. He was born in Lubbock, Texas, but was raised in Hot Springs, Arkansas since the age of 10. He graduated from former President Bill Clinton's alma mater, Hot Springs High School, in 2009. Flores' music features live looping and an eclectic repertoire of both Latin-American and American styles. He recently released his debut album, "No Borders," which was recorded out of Blue Rock Artist Ranch and Recording Studio. This long-awaited album blends contemporary mariachi music with classic soul, gospel and R&B. Through Spanish and English heartfelt lyrics and musical depth, this record merges so much of what we love: tradition, invention, and songs from courageous living. Flores first broke into the music scene while attending Henderson State University, where he entered the school's singing competition, "Henderson Idol," and went on to be crowned "2013 Henderson Idol." Since then, he has been invited to perform at events such as the Hot Water Hills Music Festival, the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival, the Miss Arkansas Pageant, Hot Springs Jazz Society's Vocal-Rama, as well as many live music venues across the southern United States. He has also auditioned/advanced past several preliminary rounds of NBC's, "The Voice," and has been featured on Fox network's "American Idol." Flores currently resides in Hot Springs, Arkansas, where he performs weekly. For booking information and updates on future performances, visit www.jacobfloresmusic.com.
