With Love, From WXPN Philly Local: Download Jesse Ruben’s “Fearless”

Yesterday, we brought you Joe D’Amico’s “Where Does the Time Go.” Today, we’ve got “Fearless” by Jesse Ruben. What’s the occasion? Valentine’s Day is coming up and one thing Helen Leicht loves more than the Philadelphia music scene is XPN’s listeners. You can check out the entire compilation here. Today’s featured track showcases Jesse Ruben, a 23-year-old Philly native who’s already put out two critically acclaimed albums. His music has received a fair amount of nontraditional praise, as well. A song of Ruben’s, “We Can,” was recently adopted as the theme song for a school district in Canada. Stream his track “Fearless” below and check back tomorrow when we continue our countdown to Valentine’s Day.
