Born in 1979 and raised in the small town Sneslev, Bellens has written songs since the age of 13 resulting in a huge output of material. He has been releasing albums since 2004, beginning with the debut from the electronic sample based project Livstrompet.
Next, he released three albums with the duo-project Murder: One Year From Now It's My Birthday (2005) Stockholm Syndrome (2006) and Gospel of Man (2010). Bellens is also the lead singer and songwriter in I Got You On Tape, which has released four albums since 2006, (I Got You On Tape, 2, Spinning for the Cause, Church of the Real).
Additionally, he has collaborated with several artists, most notably with Kasper Bjørke, whose club-oriented productions have exposed Bellens to a whole new audience. In 2013 Jacob Bellens and fellow Copenhagen songwriters Fridolin Nordsøe and Kristian Leth wrote the theme song for Dicte, one of the big national TV series of the year. Jacob is also one half of the project named Goblins alongside Lars Iversen from The Asteroids Galaxy Tour. The Goblins debut “Heartbreak City” was one of the most played songs at Denmark’s national P6 Beat radio in the summer of 2015.
In 2011, Bellens won the Music Critics' Award (Steppeulven) for Singer of The Year and also the prestigious ‘P3Gold’ award from the national danish radio. Both Murder and I Got You On Tape, as well as his collaboration with Bjørke, has grabbed several Danish Music Award nominations. The Daisy Age, the solo debut album from Jacob Bellens, was released in November 2012. It is an ethereal album, that oscillates around and resonates through the listener, intoning of life and love with sophistication and insight. Next release was the Frederik Thaae produced My Convictions album, which showed yet a new side to the many talents of Bellens, with its take on vintage pop. My Convictions was released in September 2014 on Bellens' own A Spot in The Sun label.
