Hi Jordan, welcome to LA Music Review! Tell us a little bit about you and your music.

Hello! I write indie folk songs influenced by artists like Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens, Adam Melchor, and Phoebe Bridgers.

I’m not sure there is a conventional path for singer-songwriters, but mine definitely feels pretty unconventional! I received a degree in classical voice from New England Conservatory, had my first child, and then moved across the country to pursue a career in songwriting.

I love music that takes you somewhere. I think it’s the same reason people like movies, video games, or fantasy novels. I love when music helps me see something in a new way, so I try to bring that into my own work. That all takes precedence for me over polished production or a catchy melody.

Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration when you were writing this project?

Released on January 21, 2022. Thank you! My main source of inspiration for this track was the uncertainty that I’m sure we all felt to some extent during the pandemic. This song didn’t really help me solve anything, but it did help me feel better somehow. Like that really great friend that just listens to what you have to say without trying to fix anything.

What is your vision for this song? What lessons would you like to impart with your audience?

WORLD DOMINATION. Just kidding.

This is the first single off my new EP, “The Deepest of Blues.” The EP is coming out March 18th! This isn’t my debut EP, but it feels like a debut because this group of songs really belong together. I love my first EP, but I do feel like I’m much more comfortable in my own skin as an artist on this record.

I would like my audiences to learn that it’s not only ok but essential to your well being to confront your beliefs and emotions. It’s ok to not be ok sometimes, you know? This EP for me is about processing some really difficult stuff and deciding to have hope and move forward anyway.

What is your favorite part of the song?

I love how the vocals fit together in this song. I worked with my producer Jordan Clark on this, and he was essential for helping me get the right balance and coming up with great vocal takes.

Anything else we should know about it? Future releases? Upcoming events?

I worked on this song in the Johnny Mercer Songwriters Project of 2021, and just want to shout out that incredible organization and my amazing colleagues that were a part of it this year. I’m really grateful for that opportunity and how it helped me grow as a writer.

Next single is out in February, called “Meant to Be Apart”. You can stay up to date through my website by joining the newsletter or following on Spotify!

I actually have a single release show for this song on January 26th! I’ll be playing at the Mint with a full band. I would love to see you all there!
