Rebecca Jordan came to my attention when I was sent a link to her latest video "Eve" and I was hooked.
According to her Press Release, Rebecca is originally from Ohio. She has written for such notables as Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and has co-written 5 songs for Alice Smith. Her sound has been influenced by Aretha Franklin, The Cure, and Tom Petty.
"Rebecca is the 2010 recipient of the Abe Olman Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame, a 2010 NPR Mountain Stage New Song Finalist and a 2011 Independent Music Award Nominee for her self released Souvenir EP."
Her sultry sound is reminiscent of the early rockabilly age of music circa the late 1960s. The Beatles-esque song, "G'Morning" gives me the urge to sit in a flowery meadow and write in my diary and daydream about love.
"Anchor" has a doo-wop sound and could easily fit in the rock/blues era of the late 1950s. "Asphalt" has a Stevie Wonder circa 1970s sound and "Happy" makes you well, happy. "Eve" brings back memories of smoky bars with jukeboxes playing Janis Joplin.
There is an earthiness and whimsy to Rebecca's sound, but every song has a story to tell. This girl is definitely a rising star and for those seeking independent singers that are not yet mainstream, you should check out Rebecca's album.
