Jake’s Take’s New Music Reviews – Week of Oct. 22, 2021

Artists to Watch:

Jake’s Take’s Artists to Watch is back! Here are some of the next breakout stars that are ready to shake up the music industry!

“Charlie IO” by Ellevator 

Hamilton, Ontario, Canada native Nabi Sue Bersche fronts the band Ellevator. The group has shared stages with Banners, Bishop Briggs, Cold War Kids, and Our Lady Peace. Ellevator’s “Charlie IO” superbly weaves a story about a friend’s self-discovery journey. Nabi’s soft vocals brilliantly transport listeners into their world. I am looking forward to listening to their upcoming EP next year. B/B+ 

“Someone New” by Fox Revett 

Fox Revett is looking to shake up the music world and stand out in the LGBTQ community. His first single, “Someone New,” features some great vocal moments (I love that falsetto) and a superb production beat. I cannot wait to see where his journey in the music industry takes him. 

“Office Romance” by Human Kebab 

Toronto native Human Kebab reminds me so much of Lonely Island and “Weird Al” Yankovic. “Office Romance” is cheesy and hysterical, but it has several catchy hooks that make music lovers laugh.  B-/B 

“100 Proof” by Julian Taylor

Julian Taylor’s “100 Proof” is a beautiful roots song. He took the Tyler Ellis-penned track and transformed it as the late Johnny Cash did to Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt” in 2002. I am looking forward to hearing more from him in the future. B+/A- 

“Bartender” by Zach Churchill 

Orange County, California native Zach Churchill rounds out this edition of Jake’s Take’s New Music Reviews. When I listened to “Bartender,” there were so many shades that reminded me of Billy Joel’s “Piano Man.” I got the chills as I listened to the song. If there is one new artist that you need to keep your eyes on, it is Zach Churchill. A-
