Jordan Herbert a Northamptonshire based Singer-Songwriter had one busy 2016! playing some impressive dates and a few of the best venues London has to offer including; The Bedford, Balham which he’ll be returning to again on February 20th, Dublin Castle, Camden, The Workshop, The Fidler’s Elbow, and the list goes on.
Last year Jordan and the Band (sometimes called The Casuals or The Herbiteers) released their first EP titled ‘Roots’.
The title track ‘Roots ‘ within only a few days of release ended up climbing from number 22 to 6 on the iTunes Singer-Songwriter Charts in just a few hours, surpassing the likes of Ed Sheeran’s ‘+’, Passenger, and Jamie Lawson.
There’s no doubt in my mind why it did so well, Roots is an intensely catchy song that you’ll find yourself belting out by the second chorus.
Well, he’s now doing it all again with a brand new EP due for release on February 26th 2017 entitled ‘Just Recently’, which was recorded over a 2-day session at Far Heath Studios, Northampton.
Jordan in a Facebook post announcing the release of ‘Just Recently’ said this time around him and the band this time around are going for the top 5!
The EP was produced and co-wrote by Northampton-based producer Harley-Joe Arnold, who Jordan has been making music with since 2012.
Jordan and Harley’s first release was back in 2012, with a 12 track album titled ‘Nothing More, Nothing Less’ which Harley has tattooed under his right bicep!
The first single off the album was the UK Hip Hop driven track ‘Past Life’ .which has clocked up an impressive 17,995 views since its 2012 release.
‘Just Recently’ promises to take a slightly different direction and has said to be a funk-influenced project! The band has recently finished up the music video for the first single off the EP which was directed by Francis Darracott of Oak Sessions, be sure to check out Oak Sessions on their official Youtube channel
Jordan and the band aren’t wasting any time and have already begun writing new songs for a third EP so soon ‘Just Recently’ is released it’s predicted we won’t have to wait long for their next release.
The ‘Just Recently’ music video is due for release in the coming weeks so keep your eyes glued to Jordans Facebook page for the official announcement.
