Jake Stone Unveils Debut EP ‘Saving Face’ – A Heartfelt Journey Through Heartbreak and Healing

Melbourne’s very own singer-songwriter Jake Stone has dropped his highly anticipated debut EP, Saving Face, and it’s here to pull at your heartstrings. Jake’s musical voyage, which started at the tender age of five, has blossomed into a full-fledged passion project that reflects his dedication and love for creative exploration.

Inspired by the likes of Holly Humberstone, Noah Kahan, and Blake Rose, Jake’s sound is an eclectic mix of anthemic vibes and raw emotion. His journey took a pivotal turn when a grand piano entered his family home at 14, sparking a self-taught adventure into the world of music. By 15, Jake was already diving into co-writing sessions, where he discovered the magic of collaboration, enriching his artistry alongside producer Josh King.

Saving Face offers a deeply personal look into the rollercoaster of heartbreak and self-discovery. With poignant lyrics and guitar-driven melodies, each track is a testament to Jake’s experiences and the universal themes of love and loss.

Take Late Nights, a breakup anthem that hits hard with its depiction of reliving memories and awkward run-ins with mutual friends. Then there’s Hindsight, a candid reflection on ignoring red flags and realizing you’ve been manipulated, all set to a powerful crescendo.

Better Alone embraces the strength in moving forward and shutting out toxic influences, while Past Tense tackles the tough task of accepting a former partner’s independence with a blend of chugging guitars and introspective lyrics.

The EP’s standout single, Feel It, captures the uncertainty and vulnerability of relationships, complete with vocoder backing vocals and dynamic choruses that perfectly echo the emotional turmoil of love lost.

Saving Face is a raw, honest look into Jake Stone’s soul, and it’s ready to resonate with anyone who’s ever felt the sting of a breakup. So, plug in your headphones, turn up the volume, and let Jake Stone’s heartfelt melodies guide you through the highs and lows of healing.
