Demo Review

Jake Flowers
Concrete Recordings

Article written by Mary B - Mar 22, 2009

The press release calls it a three track sampler. I call it heaven on a disc. I love Jake Flowers and not because he is a bit gorgeous. There is something really traditional and yet refreshingly new about him. The vocals are so gentle that they caress me. This is country/folk music for right now. 'Fireworks' is simple and yet so beautiful to listen to that I find myself slumping back in my chair and sighing like a lovesick teenager who has just met the boy of her dreams.

The pace of 'Annabel' is faster and not as smooth as 'Fireworks' but then it is dealing with temptation and Catholic guilt. The devil works his way in and out of the drums and strings.

'Anyhow' is a song about a failed seduction and sadly closes the music proceedings. I had never heard of Jake until tonight but can understand now how, like his surname, he will blossom into a well known name in the folk field and quite rightly so.
