Singer-songwriter David Jordan is only 21 and poised to become the next big thing from England. With a style, sound and moves reminiscent of Prince, Terence Trent D’Arby and Lenny Kravitz, Jordan’s album Set The Mood delivers an eclectic mix of touching lyrics, guitar rock, and pop fun.
His single, “Sun Goes Down”, is energetic and displays the many facets of his music with a rhythm section that draws from his homeland’s traditional Highland and Scottish music.
Jordan even shows off his Michael Jackson side in the “Move On” video, with spins that rival the gloved one’s signature pirouettes.
Born to an Indian father from Calcutta and a mother from the Caribbean island of Montserrat, Jordan was once signed to American Idol producer Simon Fuller’s management company. He counts Jimi Hendrix and James Brown as musical influences–and Amy Winehouse as a friend.
Blindie is ga ga for David Jordan and hopes he will stay on the scene longer that Terrence Trent D’Arby (aka Sananda Maitreya).
