Newark Ohio’s beleaguered son Jake Mcelfresh has established himself as one of the up and coming singer-songwriters to watch. His songs are heavy with emotion and incisive lyrics that go from worship to cutting deep in only a few breaths. Jake’s first release as Front Porch Step on Pure Noise Records, entitled Aware, is now set for release this Tuesday November 12th.
We spoke to Jake about the forthcoming release:
This record has definitely been a long time coming.
I’m so excited to share it with all of the wonderful people that have been so supportive. I owe a lot especially to Dan and the [STRAIGHTEDGEWORLDWIDE] community for being so awesome to me. This record probably wouldn’t have been possible without them.
I hope everyone enjoys listening to it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
A quick listen to the album has Run Away and I Won’t Say That I’m Okay as the standout songs. Look for a special feature next week to celebrate the album launch. In the meantime, you can stream the record through the Pure Noise Soundcloud.
Listen to the record now, and if you like it, do the kid a favor and pick it up!
