On the heels of releasing his debut EP, First Light, today, rising new singer/songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Josh Jacobson, who’s the future of soul, also releases the EP’s very soulfully amazing new latest single, I Need You.
Which finds the Itacha, New York native, showing off his soft gentle, yet amazing vocals over the soulful carefully perfectly placed piano backdrops he plays to round out the track. Some chants on the thunderous production of the record really bringing the heartbeat-like cadence of Jacobson’s amazing vocals and voice to life.
His amazing voice and vocals sounding very similar in style to such other future-type Alt. R&B/Soul artists, such as The Weeknd and Frank Ocean, it’s a surprise that Josh is still widely unknown among most of the masses.
With the release of First Light under his own newly formed Joshua Tree Records, I think this is a project that could really let others see and get to know more about this truly great talent. Josh himself having the following to say in a statement about the EP and record label launch, “This whole EP and record label launch is about seeing the rejuvenation and joy that music brings me and wanting to share that with others in its purest form.”
