PREMIERE: Jacob Fitzgerald Channels Nashville Influences On Bluesy New Single ‘Sophia’

Jacob Fitzgerald has returned with a Nashville-flavoured new single dubbed ‘Sophia’ and Music Feeds has got your exclusive first listen down below. Inspired by themes of unrequited love, the Naarm/Melbourne-based indie-rocker’s new musical offering was co-produced by the artist himself alongside collaborator Alex Walker.

“Sophia’ is a simple premise: a man falls in love with a woman, but the woman does not fall in love with the man,” Fitzgerald explains in a press statement. “It’s the tale of a heartbreaker.”

Jacob Fitzgerald – ‘Sophia’

He continues: “After absorbing the Nashville music scene in early 2023, I came home with the original riff and hook for ‘Sophia’ tattooed on my mind. The enhanced blues-rock-inspired nature of my music consumption gave birth to a song I knew I NEEDED to write. As someone who feels deeply, in my mind, Sophia is distant, hurt and cautious with who she lets love her.”

The track combines touches of classic blues rock with avant-garde indie influences and you can take it for a spin above.

To celebrate the release, Jacob Fitzgerald will also be opening a show for The Struts (UK) on their Australian tour, alongside performing with both Pacific Avenue as part of Great Southern Nights and Jack Botts during his national tour.
