Audio: Rebecca Jordan Turns On Her 'Record Player'


In the beginning, I meant to tag this post "New In Town", but being "new in town" isn't really the operative word when speaking the name Rebecca Jordan.

The Cleveland-born singer/songwriter has been around for some time, going first by Rebekah Jordan (or simply Rebekah) and in 1998 dropping her debut album, Remember To Breathe with notable single, "Sin So Well" in tow. Throughout the early 2000s, Jordan's name popped up in writing credits for Kelly Clarkson ("Beautiful Disaster"), John Legend, and Alice Smith (four tracks off of the brilliant She album). In addition, she's scooped up an award or two (Songwriters Hall of Fame╩╝s prestigious Abe Olman Award), had Prince cover one of her songs (Plectrumelectrum's "Anotherlove"), and had a notable role in Barry Levinson's 1999 film, Liberty Heights. With a varied resume as that, how 'new' can one be?

Though a veteran, Jordan is keeping things fresh for 2015 as she is seemingly testing the solo waters again as a few new tracks have appeared on her SoundCloud, all of them being worth your while as the perfect sound compliments to your summer soundtrack. I'm singling out, though, "Record Player" and "Asphalt Heart", as the former is warm with brass and '60s soul sensibility, and the latter has the ease of a Bonnie Raitt or Fleetwood Mac track from the '70s as it softly rocks along. A lovely pair they are.

While there isn't any word on if Miss Jordan's next move entails a new full-length album, she has got something cooking in the pots for sure, and I'm glad I lifted the lids to take a peek....
