Following the high impact success of the socially conscious ‘New Kids’, Spokane singer/songwriter/producer Jerad Finck prepares to introduce himself to the UK audience with his optimistically infectious new single ‘Home’.
Finishing up his first full length album, Jerad Finck offers a colorful intro to the fresh, analog-driven aural chemistry he’s been creating with its lead single “Home” – a soulful and sonically expansive track bursting with optimism that reminds us that it’s never too late to “find our way back home.”
Co-written by Jerad with Steven Solomon (Who penned the smash “Say You Won’t Let Go” reaching over 1 Billion streams in 2018), and Jake Newton of alt-pop band Sleeping Wolf, “Home” is dropped on April 12.
“Home is a song that was cathartic for me in a sense that no matter what, no matter how far you go, or how bad things can seem, there is always a way back, there is always a way back to where you started, or why or where you began in the first place,” says Finck.
“There is something about that initial starting point, that fire or spark, that inspiration, that leads to so many amazing things, and basically if you did it once, you can do it again. For me, it was a reflection on that sentiment, both on the micro and macro level, applying to anything you truly care about. It’s a simple premise, but I just felt like it was one that the world should hear, especially now. For me, music is always thematic and cinematic, I want it to be a feeling or scene that brings the listener to a place outside of the moment, a place all its own.”
“It’s the culmination of so many things for me,” the singer says. “Now I’m ready to put out everything I’ve been working on, and I’m finishing up the final touches on the record. I really wanted to do something that I was proud of and push myself, so I’ve spent literally the last year doing nothing but writing and producing as much as I could with everyone I could, to really get what I thought was the next level of music for me. I felt like I had so much to say with everything going on in the world, and nothing speaks louder than music. I’ve really dove deep into mixing analog sounds and synths with new modulation tools to really create sounds that were my own. I’ve been co-writing and co-producing with some of who I think are the coolest people in music right now, and it’s just been one of the greatest experiences of my life. Now I’m wrapping up, and I’m so excited to get it out there.”
