PREMIERE: Jordan Critz Releases New Single “Hineni”

As we wrapped up another premiere week, we are pleased to team up with Jordan Critz for the premiere of his beautiful, cinematic new single “Hineni”. The song showcases the great talent of this also film composer, filled with beautiful harmonies and uplifting melodies.

About the song, Jordan comments:

I’m usually sitting alone at my studio working with MIDI instruments and while that’s great, it’s easy to lose the human element of the art and end up controlling every aspect of each track. When approaching this new record, because of the type of music I was writing, the only way to accomplish it the right way was to record the players live. I had to have that sound.

The magic is in the imperfections; the players feeling the music themselves and playing off of each other. There’s nothing that can emulate the sound of harmonics and frequencies from the strings hitting the microphones and all the variables and inconsistencies that happen. For me this project wasn’t so much about the end product as it was about the experience both for myself and the listener. It’s incredibly powerful to play music that you wrote with 30 string players. For me it’s the pinnacle of what I do as a composer.”

Jordan is an award winning composer and producer. His work has been featured on numerous recordings as well as film and television including Disney, National Geographic, Apple, CBS, PBS, ABC, NBC, ESPN, Lifetime, TEDx and more. Jordan believes that every melody tells a story. His goal in composing and producing is to craft the melodies and music to enhance the story that’s being told by the artist or by the film director.

Critz’s classical training on piano and guitar from the age of 6 fueled his love and unorthodox approach for making music. Because of his broad experience in working with many different styles of music, he’s right at home producing a rock band, working on folk music or scoring an orchestra for a film. Jordan is a multi-instrumentalist and has toured with numerous artists and played on many records around the world. His recording studio is located on Nashville, Tennessee.
