This is folk-flavored Americana, fraught with fiddle, banjo, and a sexy duet.

This is folk-flavored Americana, fraught with fiddle, banjo, and a sexy duet. With a nod to the Great Smokies and the music of the Tennessee Valley, this could have been a recording done by A.P. Carter on a porch in Knoxville somewhere.

It's a playful number about the game of attraction and the stories we tell ourselves. Sometimes it comes down to a touch-or-go moment, and we leave it to our own instinct.

“I don’t need to know
where you been, just where you want to go
stealing a kiss at the bar
what used to be so easy got so hard”— Jake Winstrom

Jake Winstrom is a singer-songwriter who 'cut his teeth in east Tennessee.'
