Jake Miller released his debut album “Silver Lining” on March 9th 2018. This is the first album that Jake has released since becoming an independent artist. The writing and the production of the album was done in Miller’s bedroom. With the initial release the record has already topped the iTunes Pop Charts by reaching number two and iTunes charts at number eleven.
This album is full of tracks that each have their own unique beat. Not one song is like the other and that what makes this record so incredible. Each song showcases the talent that Jake has when it comes to creating beats, and self producing an album. It is truly a work of art.
Even with previous albums, Jake has always showed he is able to turn a story into a song with the way he manipulates his words. He truly is able to tell an entire story in a three or four minute song. Not only are his lyrics amazing, the vocals on this record are to die for, Jake has truly outdone himself.
Top Five Songs
Narrowing this album down to five songs you MUST listen to was beyond difficult because the entire record is a must listen.
This song is heartbreaking and wonderful at the same time. It really brings out your emotions. If you have been a fan of Jake for awhile you will be happy to know he even raps a little on this track, which you know we love!
- Starting Over
Imagine wanting to tell your ex that you miss them and want to give your relationship another shot. This is the song to inspire you to do so. Jake reminisces in the song about places the pair use to love, and things they use to do, it shows that second chances are possible.
- Drinkin’ About You
A song that is a full on jam but still meaningful is always a good song and that’s the perfect way to describe this song. The chorus is upbeat and fun to dance to while each verse slows down and creates the perfect blend. The beats to this song are incredible.
We won’t give any details about this track away except that it is so inspirational. We recommend listening to this track and follow it with “Be Alright.”
- Be Alright
Jake has always been one to write inspirational and uplifting songs, he did exactly that with this track. He focuses on the road he is on and gives advice in this song on what to do if you feel like you’ve lost your way. It’s a song you really can’t describe with words but emotions.
“Silver Lining” is a record that proves independent artists can create and produce incredible music. Fan’s of Jake should be very proud to have a hard working, dedicated artist creating these songs for them. We rate this album a 5/5.
