Bend, OR (August 11, 2023) – Indie-Folk artist Jacob Everett Wallace is returning to the music scene with the release of his brand new single, “Wild Iron” available to stream on all platforms on Friday, August 11. “Wild Iron” explores complex ideas pertaining to freedom, community, purpose, and more. Wallace expresses emotions associated with breaking the mold of tradition and building a life for yourself away from the people you know and the place you once called home.
WILD IRON LYRICS
Too many irons in the fire
It’s a long way to reach
There’s no time for goodbyes
Just a moment left to grieve
All the things I’ve acquired
Turned into shackles choking me
I gotta be free, I gotta breathe
So I’m running wild, like wild iron
The Indie-Folk singer puts his storytelling skills to the test with this Americana tune, referencing freedom through motifs like being a “mustang,” a “maverick,” and a “wild iron.” Jacob Everett Wallace wants listeners to feel comforted in the notion that none of us know exactly where our paths may lead, but that fear of the unknown is part of what makes the journey exciting. The inspiration for this new track struck when Jacob suffered a hockey injury and was forced to stay home for a while to recover. It was the time spent re-connecting with family and community that made Jacob look at life from a new perspective while still staying true to his nonconformist ways. “Wild Iron” serves as a reminder that you can discover a true sense of home and stability by going back to your roots and slowing down once in a while to regain a stable foundation.
