Every week, the State of Sound podcast welcomes an artist from our monthly concert series into the studio to go deep on one of their songs. For more info on the live show, including how to get tickets, visit the event page.

The essence of life in the Midwest pervades not only Jacob Slade’s music and lyricism, but also his work ethic — achieving almost 2 million Spotify streams and placements on various playlists is something not many independent artists can claim. And while Slade’s music has drawn comparisons to contemporary indie-folk artists such as Noah Kahan and Mt. Joy, he continues to explore a sound that’s uniquely his.

We chatted about the inspiration behind his softly ambling song “However You May,” which makes use of Slade’s percussive guitar playing and shows off his pensive writing style that’s intimately memorable. To hear the conversation and part of Jacob Slade’s set from the State of Sound concert showcase, find us on your preferred podcast platform or use the player at the top of the page.
