Jake Huffman Releases Video For Emotionally Charged Single “Just a Little More”

Singer-songwriter Jake Huffman has lived a lifetime as an artist well before the age of 30.  Reaching stardom with his band McLovins as a teenager, the band went viral after posting a cover of Phish’s “You Enjoy Myself.”  Huffman also left an imprint as a composer and lyricist for Sesame Street writing dozens of songs for artists like Ed Sheeran and Leon Bridges. He also did a stint leading the house band on ESPN’s Sports-Nation for a season.

His self produced EP Adderall & Whisky (out today) is an homage to an untamed dreamer traveling the country in a young rock band.  It is a culmination of his unique story and hard work paired with exceptional songwriting and fantastic production. Jake has created a sound that pulls deep from his rock roots and reaches far into what can only be described as the sound of the 20’s.  On stage, Jake goes from drums to keys to guitar all while communicating to an audience with deeply personal lyrics and stony vocals.

Today Huffman shares the video for “Just a Little More.”  Directed by Ali Flom, the journey of love and anger seemingly comes out through dance and life throughout the video.  Alongside the powerful indie pop instrumentals, Huffman delicately balances the weight of a relationship within his lyrics for “Just a Little More.”

Adderall and Whisky has been one of my proudest triumphs as an artist.  Each song was written about a different moment from my past then arranged chronologically. Although I never set out with an agenda, this collection of songs ended up describing my story as a young musician touring the country. I’m not sure I truly understood myself until I created this music. 

I am so lucky to have a creative partner like Allison Flom. Her vision and passion for her team is unparalleled. She took ‘Just a Little More,’ one of my most personal songs, and brought it to a whole new level. I get chills every time I watch it.”

Adderall & Whisky was produced and written by Huffman himself, mixed by Andrew Oedel, and mastered by Brian Lucey. Huffman has two dates lined up in May:

May 19th – State House New Haven CT

May 20th – Mercury Lounge NYC New York

June 24 – Richmond VA at Richmond Music Hall

June 25 – Washington DC at Pearl Street Warehouse

August 26th – Burlington VT at Foam Brewers
