INTERVIEW: Jordan Andrew

Hi Jordan, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?

hey guys, life is great! thanks for having me 🙂

Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Midnight“?

I started writing “Midnight” in California this past Summer.

We were pretty much only listening to old J-Dilla & Madlib, which really shaped the production.

This one is really special to me; the writing is pretty simple, but the lyrics are pulled from my real life.

Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?

My last relationship really inspired the writing. Both of us were traveling a lot, and things weren’t working out

We still had crazy feelings for each other, but neither of us knew what we wanted.

Any plans to release a video for the single?

We just finished shooting a visual for “Midnight” but we’re now planning for it to be part of a bigger picture.

I don’t want to give too much away, but I’ve always wanted to do a short film!

How was the recording and writing process?

The writing was finished in a week, but the recording process took around 2-3 months.

Towards the end, some of the final sessions got stressful because we made some major changes last minute.

Since it’s only the second song with my vocals, we really wanted to make sure everything was perfect.

What role does NJ play in your music?

Jersey has a huge impact on my music because it’s always my first home.

Whenever I get the chance to write music there, the songs feel so nostalgic..

Being surrounded by my family & childhood friends makes the creative process so much easier.

Does the new single mean we can expect a new album – how’s that coming along?

There is a new project in the works, but it’s not my first album 🙂

It’s about 70% done so far, we’re getting really excited!!!

Any tentative release date or title in mind?

I’m so bad with release dates, but we’re shooting for sometime this fall..MAYBE September!!

We have a working title right now, but it’s definitely going to change a few times

Any plans to hit the road?

These past few months we’ve been working really hard on the new live show

We’ll be back on the road this Summer, keep an eye out for dates near you!! 🙂

What else is happening next in Jordan Andrew’s world?

Lot’s of traveling on the agenda, but there’s so much in the works!

Be on the lookout for new music, visuals, and live show coming in 2018 <3
