Louise Jordan is a young singer, composer and multi-instrumentalist rapidly making an impact on the UK acoustic music scene. She has a purity of voice which melts the toughest of hearts and a delivery which unsettles the most discerning critic. Louise’s idyllic music carries the listener away from the humdrum and mediocrity of daily life. It is at once sumptuous and all-embracing, yet delightfully simplistic; soothing yet powerful. Louise’s songs ask questions. They are bold in their honesty and striking in their intensity. They are haunting in their simplicity and yet they traverse a broad emotional arc.
Louise’s musical arrangements are instinctive, embracing you like a familiar friend, providing comfort as they encourage you to reflect on and explore life’s uncertainties. Her gift for empathy and storytelling is due in part to an early career in education and children’s rights as well as her ongoing interest in the many ways people overcome life’s challenges.
“When I write music I want to convey feelings that the listener can identify with and understand and I hope that my music provides a safe place for people to explore these ideas so that something positive can come out of the experience.”
Louise plays guitar, piano and cello but it''s her voice which is most often celebrated as the pinnacle of her trade mark sound: captivating, powerful and evocative.
Louise has completed two UK tours with performances alongside Matt Cardle, Eliza Carthy, Phil Beer, Cara Dillon, Kris Drever and Richard Digance. Her music has been played on both local and national radio radio and she also appeared in UK Vogue in recognition of her musical contributions. Louise remains an independent artist and has produced and released two albums under her own record company Azania Records.
