MUSIC VIDEO PREMIERE: Front Porch Step – “Private Fears In Public Places”

'Aware' is available now on iTunes via Pure Noise Records.

Front Porch Step

Jake Mcelfresh, also known as Front Porch Step has had a good year. After releasing his debut LP, Aware, last year on Pure Noise Records,  Jake hit Warped Tour where he played at the Acoustic Basement stage.

Related to artists like Koji, Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes), Jessey Lacey (Brand New), and more, Front Porch Step blends pop-punk and hardcore with his acoustic guitar.

We’ve teamed up with Jake and Pure Noise Records to debut the latest Front Porch Step music video. This for the song “Private Fears In Public Spaces.”

“This video is very special to me for multiple reasons,” explains Mcelfresh. “Not only is this my favorite song from my record but it’s my favorite song to play live. Cincinnati always shows up for me. I remember when I played there two years ago as the local opener for a small tour off date for Man Overboard and I couldn’t believe how many people knew the words to my songs. It was incredible.”

“That was long before I was signed,” he continues. “Also I played one date of the 2013 warped tour and that was in Cincinnati. So this day was a cool little homecoming. This video is especially meaningful because of the man who filmed and edited it. Ryan Blewett was so kind, so unbelievably genuine to me that he was one of the people that made my warped experience great. So thank you to Ryan, the fans who are the real stars of this video, and of course Kevin Lyman for putting me on the best tour in the world.”
