From Folk Radio UK:
Avi Jacob is an up and coming singer-songwriter based in Providence, RI. His new EP “Surrender” feels like a breakthrough release, with astute songwriting, inspired vocals and subtle arrangements. Those arrangements got some help from The Felice Brothers, James (keys) and Simone (producer), who worked on the EP alongside Jacob in the deep of winter a year ago.
Released on the indie label Skate Mountain Records, the narrative is frequently dark and confessional, coming from a soul who’s faced down troubles. His experience growing up in isolation is instructive – Jacob struggled with health problems and spent a good portion of his teenage years alone in his bedroom. In interviews, he’s acknowledged that addiction issues have damaged his personal life and relationships. In his case, some brilliant songwriting emerged from those experiences.
Every song on the EP stands out. Lyrically, the confessional lament, Pickup Truck sees the songwriter at his finest, inviting comparisons to Jason Isbell, Lucinda Williams and even Dylan. Like Isbell’s Elephant, the song sweeps you up and shakes you down to the core. Anyone who’s ever had regrets in life (that’s all of us) can relate…
