Named Süddeutsche Zeitung's Band der Woche, Jordan Prince is an American Singer-Songwriter from New Orleans, LA climbing up the folk music charts in Germany. Having played for Munich’s Hauskonzerte series (following in the footsteps of artists like Glen Hansard, and BOY), being PULS Radio’s Artist of the Week in June 2016, and having Bayern 2 Zündfunk name the Jordan Prince Band EP as Demo of the Year (2016), Prince continues to spread the sound of his addictive body of work.
Prince has performed for the national arts organization RAW: Natural Born Artists (supporting Tank and the Bangas), and the international video series, Balcony TV, where he won the Global Rumble twice in a row (besting such artists as Edward Sharpe, Deer Tick, and Brendan Benson). He was also featured on UK's Amazing Radio with host Simon Raymonde (Cocteau Twins).
The JPB EP was recently voted Demo of the Year 2016 at the prestigious BR2 Zündfunk by a jury consisting of Thees Uhlmann (Intro/Visions/Spex), Sandra Kinzelmann (Sony), and Josef Winkler (Musikexpress). In the same year, Jordan was also named the Voice-of-the-Youth by Bavarian Rundfunk's PULS Station.
Jordan Prince is currently working on his new album, and because the people from his life are such a strong motor behind his writing, this will be a concept album: each of the twelve planned songs will be about a single, important person whose friendship changed his life. The album is officially to be released in 2018 with a new tour.
Until the new release, Jordan will continue touring Europe, playing festivals like the famous Reeperbahn in Hamburg (w/Portugal the Man, The Drums, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah), Stimmen Festival (where his band supported UK's ELBOW), the Wattenschlick Festival (w/Joy Denalane, Jamie Lidell), Tollwood Summer Festival, and the PULS Open Air.
If you are into James Mercer (The Shins), Elliot Smith, or Eels, the future choice on your playlists will be Jordan Prince.
Jordan's music can be found on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Google Play, Jango Radio, Pandora Radio (USA),
