Introducing Jasmine Jordan!
After following her passion, Olympia, WA-raised songstress is upon the release of her debut EP Time Travel.
Breaking onto the music scene in the summer of 2014 with video for the title track “Time Travel” (which out the gate, garnered more than 15K views on Youtube) the songwriter has been working hard to transition from a being a singer in a band and full-time student, to adjusting to her move to L.A. and balancing a full time corporate job.
“I remember waking up every day feeling a sense of emptiness because I was no longer pursuing and doing music every day, which I had already determined was a clear part of my purpose. But God had a plan and I kept pushing. I started making it a priority to do something with music every single week. I found a home church and then started meeting other artists and networking in this amazing city filled with so many different people,” she explains.
About the four-track project, Jasmine says it’s about wanting life do-overs inspired by a past relationship that turned out negative. “For me, it was inspired by a relationship where you just wish you’d have made different choices…And although life is not about living in mistakes, and I absolutely believe in ‘you live and you learn’ There are just some things you wish you could take back in retrospect. I feel like people everywhere can connect with the feeling of wishing you could "time travel" at times.”
She’s already released “Time Travel” and “Best I Can” from the set. The other tunes include “Possibilities,” which has a satisfyingly-funky 80s sound, and “Closer” which is equally gratifying, as she soulfully coos to get within reach of a love. One could liken the sweet tone of her voice and infectious grooves to one of her inspirations, Tamia. Other artists she calls inspirations and hopes to work with in the near future are Kendrick Lamar, J Cole or Elle Varner. Don’t be surprised if you do, she already has people’s ears perking!
Jasmine will be celebrating the release of Time Travel with a performance at The Mint in Los Angeles on Jan. 17th and will be touring throughout the west coast this spring in support of the project. Cop Jasmine’s EP Time Travel on Jan. 20th but meanwhile, stream it exclusively here below:
