Jasmine Jordan: "There is nothing like connecting with people"

Jasmine Jordan, an up and coming R&B singer, is no stranger to the disposition of falling in love. With incredible range, storytelling, and passion, Jasmine captivates audiences with relatable narratives that convey love's enthralling and heartbreaking dynamics.


Jasmine grew up in Olympia, Washington, where her love of music was influenced by R&B pop sensations Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, Tamia, and Alicia Keys. The singer released her debut EP, Time Travel, in January 2015

 

Hi Jasmine! We discovered your music during last month on Jamendo and it already had a great impact on our audience. Your song “Possibilities” has been listened 40,000 times and has about 20,000 how do you feel about this success?

I’m really excited and thankful that so many of the Jamendo listeners have taken time to check it out and that they connect with it in one way or another! It was such a fun song to write and record so I can only hope that this same fun energy resonates with everyone who is playing it!

 

 

What are your main influences and where do you find inspiration when composing a track?

I grew up in a home that played 80’s and 90’s RnB non stop. So this music still influences and inspires me today. Overall, life is what inspires all of my music. The experiences I’ve been through, those experiences of those closest to me, the long conversations I have with my girlfriends and family. All of it slips into my music so that I’m able to share personal pieces of myself and speak about things/issues/topics that I feel passionate about.

You have been performing live in California lately. Do you like being on stage or are you more of a studio person?

I absolutely, 100%, love being on stage. There is NOTHING like connecting with people in person. It is my opportunity to give background on the songs, to share more of Jasmine Jordan and who I really am and my opportunity to share the music in a way that I hope connects with the audience in some type of positive way.

 

 

What is your best memory of all these shows you gave around the release of Time Travel?

My best memory (although there are many!) has to be going back to WA, which is where I’m from, and performing for the first time in Seattle in front of so many people I grew up with. They packed out the house and touched my heart that night, so it is a memory I will never forget.

 

 

Could you share with us any fun fact that your audience would be surprised to hear about you?

Fun fact that the audience may be surprised to hear about me is that my mother is from Mannheim, Germany and I can speak german pretty well :)

What’s next for Jasmine Jordan, do you have any projects for the future?

Next up is my new single “Smile” coming out in August which will also include a music video. I will also be announcing a Fall Tour in the next month so I hope everyone continues to journey with me through all of this and as we move into new seasons.
