L.A. based singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Jordan Hawkins builds a hypnotic atmosphere with his music, inviting the listener into an alternate reality that moves at its own unhurried pace. With his impossibly smooth vocals and powerful range, the 22-year-old North Carolina native delivers a minimalist yet potent breed of R&B, infusing each track with his one-of-a-kind guitar work: shapeshifting, meditative, endlessly expressive of the unrestrained emotion at the heart of every lyric. Now at the helm of his debut project, Jordan Hawkins is on his way to becoming one of music’s most exciting new additions.
