Jakob Luke Dylan is a son of Sara and Bob Dylan, and grew up in Greenwich Village the youngest of five children. When he was three his family moved to Los Angeles, and he became interested in music thanks to listening to his older brother’s records, particularly The Clash. During his high school days, Dylan was involved with a few bands, including the Bootheels, where he met his future band member Tobi Miller.

After graduating from high school, Dylan went on to study art at the Parsons School of Design, but dropped out after one semester to pursue a career in music. He and Tobi Miller formed the band called the Apples in 1989, but later renamed it to The Wallflowers and signed a deal with Virgin Records. Their self-titled debut album came out in 1992, but did not do well commercially, with only around 40,000 copies sold.

In the next few years they toured with bigger bands, and moved from Virgin Records to Interscope Records through which their second album called “Bringing Down the Horse” was released in 1996, which achieved quadruple platinum status and is their highest-selling release to date; it topped the Billboard Heatseekers chart, peaked at No. 4 on The Billboard 200 and reached No. 6 on Canadian Albums chart. The two singles “One Headlight” and “The Difference” were particularly popular, reaching high positions on every important chart. Jacob`s net worth also rose by a large margin.

In 2000, The Wallflowers released their third album – “Breach” – which achieved gold status and peaked at the No. 13 position on the USA charts. The next three releases: “Red Letter Days” (2002), “Rebel, Sweetheart” (2005), and “Glad All Over” (2012) failed to repeat their early success, but still managed to get into the top 50 on the USA charts.

In 2006, Dylan began a solo career, performing without The Wallflowers, so he worked on his debut album “Seeing Things” which was released in 2008, peaking at No. 24 on the USA Billboard 200 and No. 8 on the USA Rock chart. Two years later, Dylan recorded his second and latest album called “Women + Country” which was more successful, reaching No. 12 on the USA Billboard 200, and No. 2 on the USA Rock chart. Most recently, Dylan performed in concert at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles in October 2015. His net worth is still rising.

Regarding his personal life, Jakob Dylan married long-term girlfriend, screenwriter Paige in 1992; they have four sons and reside in Los Angeles.
