Jordan Dean is an indie-pop artist that focuses on raw, live energy in his work. About his latest releases, Jordan says. “I told my producer that I wanted to sound like a four-piece band that packed a 300-person venue and I feel like we accomplished that on the Local EP.” The lead track from his EP, ‘Local’, is an ironic acoustically-driven release that appears to be a constant inner monologue from the artist. It looks at the transition of young adulthood, from the light-hearted, alcohol-fuelled evenings, to the emotional weight that is shifted on you with a heavy, swift expectation.
Jordan started his musical career off by refining his piano skills, before finding his true sound in the guitar. The twang you hear in his latest work comes from years of refining his sound in jam-packed local venues and ensuring the guitar on recording transcends in a similarly raw sense. Not only that, but Jordan enjoys the community of music and the appreciation of bands working together to create a combined sound.
