With his thoughtful, introspective lyrics and controlled stage presence, Jake Thistle is poised to lead the much-needed revival of classic ‘70s singer/songwriters. And in a few months, he’ll get his driver’s license. At sixteen years old, Thistle’s music oozes an authenticity and depth that should make modern folk legends like Jason Isbell and Jeff Tweedy smile. His vocals, delivered with sincerity and just the right amount of rasp, recall early Jackson Browne, John Hiatt, Steve Forbert and Tom Petty.”
