Jackson Dreyer was inspired to start playing music listening to Santana. He thought that he was going to be a musician that never had to find his voice. However, he found out from his father that to be a frontman, you have to sing. Soon after he discovered songwriting and then it was a one-way ticket to Nashville to study music.
When Dreyer first stepped foot in Nashville he knew it was going to be beneficial for his career.
“I become a better musician every time I leave my house,” Dreyer said. “It’s music first, not status, everyone is here for the music.”
Focusing on that music route, Dreyer released his new single today “Step Back” following an upcoming album. It comes from a place of starting to reconnect with someone you’ve dated in the past.
“She was in my heart still but I knew things had to be over,” Dreyer said. “It documents the moment of us reconnecting briefly and that’s all it took, but I knew we couldn’t be together again.”
Dreyer hopes that listeners groove and have fun with it. It takes from more of his R&B influences that come together for an upbeat and unique track. The lyrics also have a meaningful story behind the melody.
“It may feel like you’re going backward but you’re really going forward when you realize you have to move on,” Dreyer said. “You can’t force anything when it comes to love because the right person is out there for you.”
Having not released a song in a year, Dreyer is ready for listeners to dive back into his music. This is the first song that is the next iteration for Dreyer and his sound that will be featured on his upcoming album.
