Pink Dogs on the Green Grass is a deeply personal record on which Paul Jacobs opens
up about his experience in life through the lens of folk, pop, rock and psychedelic music.
This is the essence of his album, a 13-track collection of ageless, yet modern recordings
inspired by classic acts past and present. From deep emotional melodies to freak out jams,
folk-pop ballads to synth rock ‘n’ roll epics, Jacobs truly creates a world of his own.
By combining his passions for music and visual art, and creating all the artwork associated
with the project – from the album cover to the design of the merch items, Paul Jacobs
perfectly embodies the modern version of the Renaissance man, who pushes back the
boundaries thanks to his unique work. In his artistic universe, these two areas of creation are so intertwined that it was the cover art that inspired the title of the album and not the other way around.
“I was trying to come up with an idea for the cover to possibly help me with a title. I drew these dogs and thought it was pretty cool so I added the color. I still couldn’t come up with a name for the album so I decided to title the album art instead of the album,” he explains. “I felt like it had the feel of a children’s book, something that you would come across in your adult years that would bring you back to childhood for a moment.”
