Nick Jordan is to the Twin Cities as Frank Ocean is to New Orleans. Jordan put out his debut release, NJ, this past fall, and has been on the hustle ever since, frequenting shows at the Cabooze, the Dakota Jazz Club, Acadia, and the Bedlam Theatre. Self-described as "soul food," Jordan has a sweet croon that vibes with the nostalgic '90s production by friend Luke Darger a.k.a. moonsidr_dlux.
Having moved to St. Paul at age 18, he says he finds inspiration from Prince, Q-Tip, and Jhene Aiko, among others. Jordan, still in his early 20s, doesn't shy away from grand performances, either. His live shows and music videos add a new layer to the already funk-infused music; he carries out detailed choreography with a multitude of back-up dancers.
My main goal as an artist is to create art that feeds the revolution.
