Discovery: Jake Whiskin

Jake Whiskin is an acoustic folk singer songwriter who hails from just down the road in Leeds. His latest track explores themes of hope, loss and the passage of time. It’s called Cold Morning.

By Graeme Smith

Led by melancholy piano, Cold Morning is a pensive and atmospheric piece. Jake’s soft vocals provide the texture and the story which paints a picture while it breaks your heart. Jake writes music for its ability to provide catharsis and you can feel that in every sung note.

Jake has plenty more planned for next year and I, for one, can’t wait to hear more from him. I hope you’ll agree. You can watch the lyric video for Cold Morning below.
