A natural story-teller
As heard on his new EP, San Diego's Jakob Martin comes off as the quiet guy at the party who tells the absolute best stories the guy in the corner with the biggest crowd around him, hanging on every word.
He's possessed of a warm, welcoming voice, and a quietly dramatic narrative style. He then takes those little stories of his and marries them to some quite lovely melodies accompanying himself on guitar for a package that's pretty hard to resist.
The rap sequence on one song doesn't quite work, but everything else on this four-song release is superb.
