That Dylan Jakobsen's music career started on Myspace is hardly interesting or unusual in and of itself, but it makes the fact that he's beginning to move beyond the Hot Topic crowd all the more salient. Long Way Home contains less wince-inducing balladry (except for "Everybody (I Need You)," which belongs on a One Tree Hill episode circa 2006) and more mature, surprisingly folksy pop songs like the harmonica-laced "Kids."

Jakobsen plays an album release show Friday at El Corazon. Watch the video for "Everybody (I Need You)" after the jump.
