Radio Disney has just named Jacob Whitesides their newest NBT or, Next Big Thing featured artist.
Whitesides will be the latest artist to be highlighted in the multi-platform feature program that has helped develop some of today's top musical acts such as Becky G, Shawn Mendes, and more.
Jacob is a perfect example of an artist created by the digital age. Having amassed more than 4 million followers on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, Whitesides released his debut EP A Piece Of Me, which reached #1 on the iTunes U.S. Singer/Songwriter chart, #3 on the Pop Album chart, and #5 on the iTunes Top Album chart.
In addition to creating hit music for a plethora of fans, Jacob is also the CEO of his own touring, merchandising and record label, Double U Records.
Now, Radio Disney's NBT will follow Whitesides throughout his tour and upcoming EP release while he reflects on his inspirations, and develops his own unique sound.
Congratulations to Jacob! If anyone deserves to be Radio Disney's Next Big Thing, it's him!
