In this episode, we're featuring the latest EP from East Texas' own Jake Penrod: Out Of Control. Early on in his career, Jake made his mark as a Hank Williams-influenced country musician - physical similarities notwithstanding, he adopted his own take on Hank's nasal moan and forged a critically acclaimed path doing so. However, on this latest EP, which I won't hesitate to call his breakout release - Jake Penrod has come into his own sound - a sound reminiscent of his hillbilly influences in Hank and Lefty, but with a 21st century clarity, individuality and one helluva range. Jake wrote all the tracks on this EP, employed the best session musicians in Bobby Flores, Jake Hooker and Randy Reinhard on steel - and the result is sublime.
