My name is Jacob Chroussis and I am a musician that lives in Northern Virginia.
I began my life as a musician when I started learning guitar at 13 years old. I taught myself for a few months and soon got a Guitar Instructor named Randy Adams in Manassas, Virginia. He was very patient and seemed to enjoy the same music as I did, teaching me any cover I wanted to learn each week.
Soon after I began learning, I played the Star Spangled Banner at a various sports events in and out of my high school. I got my first full gig in 2014 after Rob Dulin, a teacher at my high school and Co-Owner of Fun Run Racing, asked me to play at their annual 5k Turkey Trot in Manassas, Virginia. I have played at all of their runs since then and plan on playing as many as they want me to.
On my 20th birthday, August 17th, 2019, I released my first official song, “Chains".
*What I do - I mainly play guitar in the Blues, Rock, and Metal genres with my biggest influences being Slash (Guns N’ Roses, Slash’s Snakepit, Velvet Revolver, Solo), Mark Tremonti (Creed, Alter Bridge, Tremonti), Myles Kennedy (Mayfield Four, Alter Bridge, Slash, Solo), and Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses, Solo). Other major influences include AC/DC, Aerosmith, Breaking Benjamin, Led Zeppelin, and ZZ Top.
