A Massachusetts native and recent graduate of Berklee College of Music’s esteemed Songwriters Program, Jordan’s songwriting is authentic and profound. At just twenty-two years old, her music is a modern take on the Laurel Canyon/California sound that helped shape the sounds of 60’s and 70’s.
“Even If” was born from one of my best friends sitting in the passenger seat of my car saying “I hope she rocks his whole world,” says Jordan on the inspiration for the new song. “She was mad at herself for still wanting the boy who broke her heart to be happy. And it got me on this train of thought about the love you have for someone outweighing the heartbreak. So, this is what I call my ‘reverse heartbreak’ song. Where you’re mad/sad/all the above but at the end of the day you just want that person to be happy because you still love them it just sucks they weren’t happy with you.”
Jordan’s distinct sound was helped shaped by her cousins and siblings, who raised her on the hits of the Spice Girls, Destiny’s Child, No Doubt and so many more. As she grew up she fell hopelessly in love with music of The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac helping blend her musical influences creating a one-of-a-kind tone to her original songs.
An over thinker by nature, Jordan’s music tends to delve into her inner workings and journey of self-discovery. Always open to the endless combinations of genres, she likes her writing world to be free of boundaries. But the one thing she never waivers on is keeping things honest. The best music comes from truths (and maybe that’s the secret behind a hit).
