Jake Troth - It Is As If [Magnolia Exclusive]
There’s a certain type of song Jake Troth realized he most enjoys creating: the simple one; the honest and no-nonsense, almost meditative one. To hear the contemplative, soft-spoken singer-songwriter tell it, these songs have no agenda. Having spent years penning mega-wattage pop singles for an A-list assemblage of some of music’s biggest names, including Big Boi, Lizzo, Sia, and Kehlani. Troth yearned to connect to his work on a deeper and more personal level. Troth is speaking to the multi-year process that resulted in It Is As If, the singer-songwriter’s stunning major-label debut album anchored by refined melodies and deft lyrical observations. Troth calls it the project he’s been waiting his entire life to complete.
