Silken Walls

Rock - General

Silken Walls expresses Jesse's emotions and spirited, thoughtful reflections about romantic relationships and the pursuit of dreams with a rich originality that blends classic piano and keyboard driven pop rock with harmonic inspiration from his other favorite artists The Eagles, Maroon 5, CSNY and John Legend. Though some who have listened wonder if there are sexual overtones in the lyrics of the sweeping and wistfully romantic opening title track, in actuality, the "Silken Walls" refer to the lush softness of a woman's long straight beautiful hair as a metaphor for the relationship. "Take You Home" is a funky, dynamically produced, real brass-enhanced rock tune that takes an optimistic look at the courting process. Showcasing his remarkable diversity, Rubenfeld follows the seductive, acoustic guitar enhanced James Taylor vibing "Another Touch" with "So Hot Right Now," an explosive high energy, electric guitar propelled rock ballad that stands as a departure from the rest of Silken Walls; the energy of the track dictates that it be piano and keyboard free! Another song that takes Rubenfeld slightly out of his comfort zone is the percussive, New Orleans meets country/bluegrass flavored "When You Need My Love." Back to his trademark graceful piano style, Rubenfeld reaches the starry eyed romantic in all of us on the anthemic "All For Something" and taps into his classical background on the hypnotic (and vocal free) piano solo "Erev X-mas" (a lovely track perfect as background for holiday parties). Finally, he incorporates Queen-like vocal harmonies and lively, high energy Allman Brothers piano licks on "Thoughts About The Future," which finds Rubenfeld looking back on the hardships of his musical journey, determined to forge ahead come what may. He also taps into a Southern rock front porch feeling on "Love Began," a rich chronicle of the end of a relationship that shows the way the heart grows even when things don't work out.
