AUDIO: Jacob Slade – “Soft Spoken”
Singer-songwriter Jacob Slade dropped a new album last month. Bringing ten tracks, this record is the perfect soundtrack for a brisk fall day. Slade touches on coming-of-age themes such as retaining your sense of inner child (the title track), fearing the passage of time (“Undone”), love that comes and goes (“Ollie”) and giving yourself a break (“Slightly Worn”), untethering himself from the pretenses of where he should be in life at this very moment. Jacob Slade’s “Soft Spoken” will resonate with anyone struggling with their senses of identity and home, but its gently contemplative atmosphere wraps those feelings in a warm blanket.
