Unsigned Artist: Jake Aaron


On his barebones recordings—guitar, voice and beat box—Jake Aaron oozes with a grizzled authority that comes from life experience. “Don’t fuck with me/’Cos I may be eighteen/ But I’m going on eighty-three” is the warning that begins “Record Player.” Like this Englishman’s other songs, this one’s references and overall message are highly personal, and his chesty resonance is convincing: You don’t, in fact, want to fuck with him. On the alternately happy/sad “1790,” the artist pays tribute to a lover’s tenderness. Most successful—and perhaps ideal for a TV nature show—is the appealing instrumental “High Rolling,” where Aaron achieves a solid, beefy tone and dexterity on his acoustic guitar, leaning into his strings to convey the sunny, pastoral life-force of his composition.
