Front Porch Step

A solo acoustic vehicle for Newark, Ohio-based singer/songwriter Jake McElfresh, Front Porch Step serves up candid, emotionally charged punk-folk in the vein of Dashboard Confessional, City and Colour, and Tim Barry. McElfresh released his debut EP, Endearment, under the moniker in 2012, followed shortly by another EP, So Help Me God. He garnered significant online praise for his YouTube rendition of the song "Island of the Misfit Boy," which caught the ear of Pure Noise and eventually landed him a record deal. His debut long-player for the label, Aware, was issued in the summer of 2014. ~ James Christopher Monger

He was accused of having somewhat of a texting affair with a few underage girls. I didn't see any ages given in any of the articles I've read about it. Age of consent varies from state to state (ranging from 16~18), and the exact phrase used to describe the age of the girls was underage in their state.

Since no actual charges have been brought against him, it's likely that none of the girls were actually younger than 16. He's being called a pedophile, which has damaged his career greatly.

What is the story what did he do ? Looking at the Comments it doesn't seem like a big deal why is everyone judging him

I love this song.
And this band.
It describes a lot of my life.
And the band seems to know exactly how I feel with each one of their songs.

Is because he has some sort of fame.

I don't see anything wrong with Jake and what happened between him and those girls. He seems like a sensible guy, and those girls were all fully aware of the consequences . I am 20 years old. I have had relationship s with minors through texting. I will admit this. They were all consensual and i never forced myself upon anyone. The case of Jake vs these girls seems to be in the same context of me and the girls I have had instances with through texting. The only reason
anything is happening to him

It's crazy what he did to those girls and I'm wondering if he still going on with those choices. I love his music and it got me through so much, but I can't support or even listen to someone who would do such a thing to girls

I personally know Jake from years living in Newark. Great guy. His music is a plus and glad I've heard it before he left town. But damn pandora, why is he playing on my Silverstein radio?!
Report as inappropriate
Dont get me wrong,his music is really good,the lyrics are good,but sometimes he needs to calm down on his singing and stop screaming,bu t other then that,i give this guy a thumbs up.
Report as inappropriate
Okay well he's an awful person and I literally hate that I like this music.
Report as inappropriate
The girl I love told me she listens to FPS because it reminded her of me. Once I listened more, I started to like him more and more. I've only heard a few songs, but I'm glad I have heard any at all. Thank you Alexa for showing me the words I wanted to say and the things I feel, because I couldn't get them out myself.
