ABSOLUTExclusive: Front Porch Step

Posted by: Christian Wagner (01/30/14)
It's really funny to look back through your inbox and see the progression and growth of an artist. September 2012 was the first time I received an email about Front Porch Step, when he was just a local act. I didn't think much of it then but to see how much he's grown is truly amazing. Now, he's signed to Pure Noise and gaining tons of momentum with his debut record out on iTunes and physical copies hitting stores on Feb. 11th. Today we're premiering the video for "Drown." You can view it in the replies.

This guy is good. Reminds me of back when The Spill Canvas was just Nick and his guitar.

For a song that is so centered around vocals and lyrics, this song is so flat. Melodically it doesn't really go anywhere, and his performance doesn't make enough use of dynamics to really make bring about any catharsis in the listener. At this stage in the game, I'm also expecting way more lyrically out of this type of music.

to each their own i suppose. i enjoy this song bc of the vocal tempo, vocals, melody, and lyrics. i'm not much on the rest of the album but this song has a way of sticking with me.
