Jordan Vincent – “Sister Jill”

Jordan Vincent is an artist from Los Angeles, whose career as a vocalist and songwriter has yielded success thus far. His vocals have appeared on recordings alongside Michael Bublé, Blackthought (The Roots), Shellback, and Spicy G. His songwriting has appeared in a variety of commercials and short films. Now, he has his own EP out, There Is No Line. The release showcases a vocal tone with an ability to alternate between sweltering, bluesy raucousness and smooth pop sensibility. “Sister Jill” is a specific highlight, his croon escalating in pitch during a chorus enhanced by spurts of brass and guitar fragments. Meanwhile, “DGTZD” grows from a minimalist psych-pop key-laden beginnings with ’60s sentiments, into an anthemic rocker with a rousing organ. “Back Then” also excels, showing a straightforward though effective vein of blues-tinged rock with ample charisma, revealing a passionate piano-laden hook just prior to the two-minute mark.
