Jakob Skjoldborg is a self-taught singer with a musical background reaching into rock, musical and classical music. He has, besides his engagement with Ars Nova, a soloist career mainly with music from the renaissance and baroque. In addition he is a co-founder of the Holmens Mens Quartet, Holmgang, that melts hearts wherever they go. He has also released two critically acclaimed albums with the indie rock band Windermere. In his spare time Jakob is a M.A. in danish and language psychology; this sometimes develops into a project where Jakob puts music to danish poetry that leaves a sweet taste in the ears.
