We think the highly personalized “Fat Kid” by AUSTIN JENCKES [Ft. Lori McKenna] is an unadorned, uncomplicated psalm of self-reference… perhaps about understanding misunderstandings

If You Grew up Like I Did

And the acoustic version of the song had beat-down, hometown bittersweet longing… It’s a song of recall, ridicule and bother.

Now the music video is out [shared below] and we find the voice is sincere and untroubled, and the song is hyper-effective in style with Lori McKenna’s self-effacing & sympathetic vocal accompaniment adding a sense of unselfish largesse.

If You Grew up Like I Did” the debut album by Austin Jenckes is due 31st May 2019
