New York-based guitarist Jakob Reinhardt is best known as the guitarist for the first North American tours of the Broadway shows Fun Home and A Night With Janis Joplin.

 His solo album ‘Songs From Coastal Cities’ showcases his unique voice as an instrumentalist, drawing inspiration from American blues, French gypsy jazz, and German traditional music.

 Since graduating Summa Cum Laude from Berklee College Of Music , he has worked with ‘Riverdance’ composer Bill Whelan, theatrical composers Laurence O'Keefe and Paul Gordon, the Hasty Pudding Theatricals, and many more. Jakob has performed at Summerfest, the world's largest music festival, and he has lectured and performed at the Ullapool Guitar Festival in Scotland. As a composer, he wrote music for two productions at Boston's Calderwood Pavilion. His compositions have been featured in multiple showcases at the New York Musical Theater Festival and served as underscore in ‘A Night With Janis Joplin’. As a music copyist he worked on Paul Gordon's new show, ‘Death: The Musical’.
