American Singer/Songwriter JORDAN HURWITZ proudly presents captivating and soulful pop, powerful melodies, and story-telling ballads that speak to the challenges people face in their everyday lives, and empower them to rise above. She is very excited to release her newest music video for the single “I LOVE YOUR ABS” off her latest LOVESICK. EP. Jordan recently completed her successful LOVESICK. tour along the West and East Coasts, showcasing this EP of six original songs that highlight her evolving musical maturity and continued depth in her songwriting. The “I LOVE YOUR ABS” MUSIC VIDEO will be released on October 12, 2017 on a few choice online platforms.
Produced and arranged by Narada Michael Walden (Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin), LOVESICK. was recorded at his Tarpan Studios and released through his Tarpan Records label. “Working with Narada is an incomparable and invaluable experience,” she says. “His talent and artistry take my music to a whole new dimension and continue to be nothing less than amazing.” LOVESICK. is JORDAN HURWITZ’s second EP working with Narada, following her Here I’ll Stand EP released with Tarpan Records in 2015. “I LOVE YOUR ABS” is Jordan’s second music video from LOVESICK., with her first widely-acclaimed “Riverbank” music video premiering earlier this year as part of the EP’s launch. The LOVESICK. and Here I’ll Stand EPs were preceded by Jordan’s debut album Infinity in 2013, and The New Me, produced by Marcus Barone, in 2014.
Reviewing LOVESICK., Russell Trunk of Exclusive Magazine said, “In truth, no matter if it’s the tongue in cheek pop song ‘I Love Your Abs’, the poignant ballad ‘Power’, the stoic Blues-feel of ‘Riverbank’ or even ‘Hurricane’, this new album is as good as anything Narada has been involved with, in my opinion. I mean, just ‘Lovesick’ alone, with its Latin beats, engaging hip-sway rhythm might just be as close to a genuine Top 10 radio hit as Hurwitz has ever been – and deservedly so, trust me.” He also had glowing reviews for Jordan’s Here I’ll Stand EP, saying “… [she is] so apt at creating musical visions to back her every lyric that it’s hard not to imagine her standing proudly alongside Taylor Swift at an awards ceremony one day.”
JORDAN HURWITZ uses her lyrics to work through the trials and tribulations of growing up. “I would be nothing without my lyrics. My songwriting is who I am,” says Jordan. “A finished song always brings resolution to my internal conflicts,” she notes. “The problems themselves sometimes never change, but my actions and perspectives do. Every song I’ve ever written carries the motif of being broken and finding the strength to rise above. Often, before I create the song I don’t have this strength, but the empowering lyrics play on repeat in my head until they become reality.”
Born and raised in Redwood City, California, Jordan spends most of the year in Miami, Florida, where she attends University of Miami’s Frost School of Music in the highly-regarded Bruce Hornsby Creative American Music Program. “Being a student at Frost provides me with the constant surroundings of extremely motivated and talented peers as well as professors, keeping me eager to better myself and my music. Frost is the perfect place to continue my music education and evolve my career as a singer/songwriter.” JORDAN HURWITZ can often be seen performing in venues around town as well as university-related events.
JORDAN HURWITZ’s musical experience began with piano lessons at age six, and has evolved to include drums, voice training, and guitar, all of which she now uses to accompany her songwriting. “Empowering myself with song was life-changing in itself, but that doesn’t even compare to the feeling deriving from other people relating to my songs. It gives me comfort to know that the issues I face are faced by other people, and it gives me a sense of pride realizing that with my music, I can help them feel better about themselves as well.” She released her first album of original songs at age 16, and hasn’t stopped writing or performing since.
JORDAN HURWITZ is always working on new music. She appreciates and is influenced by artists from many genres, including Billy Joel, Sara Bareilles, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Demi Lovato, Kelly Clarkson, and Lady Gaga. Stay on the lookout for more from this amazing new artist.
