Mark L. Oakes – ‘Shredded Jeans’

‘Shredded Jeans’ is the beautiful single taken from Mark L. Oakes’ debut album, Call Me The Moon.

With a highly listenable and endearing singer-songwriter style, Oakes can be compared to the likes of his influences such as Tucker Zimmerman, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers and Ryan Adams. However, ‘Shredded Jeans’ is most easily identifiable wit the sound of Neil Young which comes through strongly from Mark’s sweet vocal tone and the use of harmonicas in the track.

Mainly tracked at Mark’s home studio in the heart of the Ardennes, the record has been finalised with the help of Londoner cellist Ben Trigg and mastered by Grammy award winner Gavin Lurssen in Los Angeles.

While singles ‘Shredded Jeans’ and ‘Friend From Above (Sleepless Spouse)’ are tinged with soft melancholy vibes, other tunes like ‘Aloof Again’ and ‘None Of These Roads’ display Mark’s wide ranging capabilities as a musician.

Overall, if you’re looking for a well-crafted piece of easy listening Americana, then look no further than Mark L. Oakes’ Call Me The Moon.
