Jake Hoot proves once again that he’s the everyman. Inspired after receiving an exorbitant bill in the mail, the singer-songwriter took to pen and paper to funnell out his emotions, mostly gratitude that he had money to even cover it. “Had It to Lose” is a personal statement about learning to cherish what one has, rather than grow resentful for what you don’t. “At least I had it to lose / Yes, you can’t take it with you in the end,” sings Hoot. It’s charming, breezy, and doesn’t skimp on the emotional suckerpunch.
