Jacob Tolliver’s entertainment roots began at an early age dazzling his teachers and classmates at Portsmouth West High School in the deepest most Southern region of Appalachian Ohio. Jacob learned to sing, perform and act by gravitating to his old school heroes like Dick Van Dyke, Tony Bennett, Jerry Lee Lewis and many others.
In 2013 at the age of 19, Jacob was selected to play the role of Jerry Lee Lewis, “The Killer,” in the Las Vegas production of “Million Dollar Quartet.” He was also seen on Season XIV of American Idol, making it through to Hollywood Week.
Most recently, Jacob is the opening act across the country for Jerry Lee Lewis’ shows and is spearheading the continuation of the piano rock style to keep it alive for future generations to come.
