Rebecca Jordan Enchants With Her Contemporary Yet Timeless Sensibility
A young, contemporary voice infused with an old soul's timeless wisdom and insight, New York based singer/songwriter Rebecca Jordan's folk/soul stylings are driven by an introspective honesty that is fluently self-aware and self-revelatory whether addressing her dreams or vulnerabilities, the hushed, sweetly gentle beauty of her emotionally eloquent voice offering acute observations about understanding oneself and the universal, heart-bruising realities that the vulnerability required to love can proffer as she candidly addresses the unrequited sentiments and hard-to-decipher intentions that swirl in the hearts of us all when we are in the thrall of love's uncertainty.
Growing up in Ohio listening to the likes of The Cure, Aretha Franklin, Joao Gilberto and Tom Petty, after a grounding in classical piano Jordan taught herself guitar so as to write songs, with her natural instincts and aptitude for crafting melodies and lyrics finding a welcoming reception after moving to New York.
The 2010 recipient of the Abe Olman Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame and a 2010 NPR Mountain Stage NewSong Finalist, Jordan was also a 2011 Independent Music Award Nominee for her self-released Souvenir EP. Having written for Kelly Clarkson and John Legend, she also co-wrote six songs on Grammy-nominated singer Alice Smith's 2013 album, 'She', and the video for her own 2012 single 'Eve' went on to be featured on MTV.com and VH1.com.
