Jordan Paul’s style is distinctive, boasting notes of delicate, spacious, exploratory alt. folk/rock—all with a shadowy edge. He has been dubbed “Canada’s Jeff Buckley” by 3-time GRAMMY winning producer Chris Birkett (Led Zeppelin, Talking Heads). Sleeping Bag Studios’ Jer Gladstone has mused he’d be the result “if Queen, Mimicking Birds, Radiohead, and Led Zeppelin had a beautiful love child.” Jordan Paul’s music explores the peaks and valleys of life’s terrain; a central idea concludes that without the dark, we lose the ability to experience ad truly appreciate the light. As a songwriter, he has worked in France with 18-time GRAMMY winning producer James Sanger (U2, Dido, Phil Collins), Darryl James of The Strumbellas (Double Platinum in Canada; Gold in USA/Australia), Matt Lipscombe (Lily Frost, Bran Van 3000), Amanda Mabro (Ron Sexsmith), Martin Kerr (#1 in Canada), Khalid Yassein (Wild Rivers), and more. Paul’s music has appeared in The CW’s ‘The Secret Circle,’ Shaw TV’s ‘When Paintings Come Alive,’ MTV’s ‘Real World,’ and LaJoie De Vie’s short-film ‘Best Budz.’ Paul’s forthcoming album was recorded at Jon Anderson’s (Aidan Knight, Andy Shauf, Said The Whale) Protection Island Studios in Maple Ridge, BC and mastered by Noah Mintz (Marcy Playground, Broken Social Scene, Matt Mays). “Music is the fabric that weaves a bond between us, lessening the distance we feel from our counterparts.”
