We have compiled an array of content — liners and a few soundbites – from JORDAN DAVIS to equip you with some tools that we hope will come in handy and help you roll out tracks leading up to – and following – the release of the Louisiana native’s self-titled EP JORDAN DAVIS.. Check out the content below (including the liners and transcriptions).
It was a dream of becoming a songwriter that first brought Shreveport, Louisiana native Jordan Davis to Nashville in 2012. A lot has changed for 2020 ACM Best New Male Artist of the Year nominee since moving to Music City. From signing a record deal with MCA Nashville and racking up over one billion streams of his debut album Home State to touring the country playing for fans and notching three consecutive No. 1s with Platinum-certified “Singles You Up” and “Take It From Me” and most recently “Slow Dance In a Parking Lot,” one thing has remained constant for the breakthrough hitmaker, his love for the craft of songwriting. That passion continues to drive his latest project, a self-titled EP out May 22nd.
“We closed Home State with ‘Leaving New Orleans’ and it was one I almost didn’t record…I got too caught up in the lyrics and worried if you were not from New Orleans you wouldn’t be into the song. But at shows across the country people would sing the chorus back to us. The location didn’t matter to them, it was the meaning behind the lyrics that struck a chord. I wanted to lean into that and create more songs like it for this project.”
Davis toes that rare line between commercial viability and intricate songwriting. A paradox of reflective and feel-good, he proves the two are not mutually exclusive with his new EP. Teaming once again with Home State producer Paul DiGiovanni, Davis delivers the catchy hooks and the sing-a-longs that have become his signature, with tracks like “Ruin My Weekend” and latest single “Almost Maybes” written with songwriting heavy weights Jesse Frasure and Hillary Lindsey, while going deeper with the personal “Detours” and spiritual “Church In A Chevy.” It’s an artistic dichotomy Davis has been aware of since he started listening to music as a kid.
