Jake Merritt is an absolute genius on the guitar. I know that is an odd way to start a review but after one listen to his new single titled ‘Opting Out’ I think you will agree. The track itself is a subtle canvas for the heartfelt lyrics with a solid beat and a beautiful rhythm and chord progression. Simply marvelous.
