The Jake Stephens debut album, “How The Water Feels”, is surfer’s acoustic-vibed concept album around the poetry of the water. A mix of ocean-centered love songs and tales of surfing, mountains, beaches, and rivers. Warmly-played strumming and finger-picked guitar arrangements, often backed by sweetly rising-&-falling female harmonies and soulful slide-guitar riffs, with instrumentals featuring aching harmonica solos, harmonized nylon-string guitar parts, melodic telecasters, spoken word interludes, and a touch of pedal steel. Debut album.

Sound description: Poetic. Acoustic. Rolling. Grooving. Somewhere between the Indigo Girls, Leonard Cohen, Jack Johnson, old Paul Simon, and acoustic Ben Harper – and a speck of Lyle Lovett-ish surfer-cowboy flavor.
