In every struggle, there lies a gem of wisdom, a universal truth that both shines and blinds. But you have to dig for it, and dig deep is exactly what singer-songwriter Joe Jaber did when he wrote the songs for his new album, “Made It on My Own.”
Confessional and cathartic, “Made It on My Own” is Jaber’s third album, and perhaps his most comprehensive in its approach to storytelling. The record is a collection of six songs that offer soulful snapshots of Jaber’s personal journey from childhood to manhood and beyond. He attacks themes of loss and survival with honesty and authenticity, and delivers a solid performance packed with beautiful harmonies and lingering melodies.
The CD release party for “Made It on My Own” takes place November 10 at Hockeytown Cafe in downtown Detroit. The event is also a fundraiser designed to create awareness about people struggling with depression and addiction. Details for the event are available at http://joejaberandthelastdivide.com/
