He writes with a maturity & flair that belies his 25 years & this record sees him edging beyond the peripheries of the genial, often sun-flecked sound his fans have come to know him for.

On “Wallflower” the tools & the process have evolved - the focus is on live instrumentation - but the groove & the cadence are unmistakable, framing soul & jazz in a truly vibrant oeuvre that simultaneously recalls his predecessors The Roots & peers The Internet, Nick Hakim & Hiatus Kaiyote. Jordan considers “Wallflower” his most personal work yet - it’s an emotive opus inspired by his own struggles with introversion & anxiety. Sonically lush & complex, yet lyrically relatable & unguarded, listeners are offered a glimpse into the mind & artistry of a musician who grapples with his own self- image & fears every day.
