Rising Star Jordan Carroll Announces Release of New Single "Yours to Keep," Available May 1
PHOENIX, April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The heavenly sounds of the piano are familiar to Jordan Carroll (http://www.jordancarrollmusic.com/) from childhood lessons, but his upcoming single, "Yours to Keep," will be the first time the blues-inspired singer/songwriter features the instrument in his own music. Early listeners have responded warmly, remarking that the music preserves Carroll's signature grit and soul, while managing to showcase a softer side too. May 1 will see a worldwide release of the single and accompanying full-length music video, kicking off an exciting summer for the 22-year-old Phoenix native.
Since releasing his first 5-song EP in 2013, Carroll has steadily built a name for himself in the independent music community. The combination of a powerful voice, evocative lyrics, and a vibrant acoustic guitar make him eminently listenable, especially as a live performer. Carroll recently completed a lengthy tour, hitting cities throughout the western US and Canada, before making his way to Europe, where he found himself on stage behind the microphone in various cities before doing a photo shoot in Barcelona for "Yours to Keep".
The goal with the forthcoming single is to continue courting bloggers, music journalists, DJs, and radio hosts in an effort to secure all-important exposure. Carroll is asking that anyone interested in helping write the next chapter of this success story to send an email.
Carroll has already earned praise from industry insiders. "You are one the fastest growing solo artist I have seen in a while! I wish you luck on this great adventure to success!" commented Mike Renolds of The Edge 103.9 Radio. Rob Mullten of PastTime Records encouraged the up-and-coming singer/songwriter to "Keep up the good work. I can see this going somewhere. To be honest, maybe faster than you think."
The upcoming single is just one of several reasons for Carroll and his fans to be excited about 2014. This summer will see the release of a new EP "Dirty Child", after which Jordan will hit the road again promoting these releases, tour dates and venues to be announced.
Looking Further ahead, Carroll has another EP in the pipeline that will be released either late this year or early 2015. "Headed West" will showcase more new instruments and communicate themes of life, travel, love, and the value of experience. "Yours to Keep", "Dirty Child" and "Headed West" are all being tracked at Don Salter's well known 'Salt Mine Studio Oasis' in Mesa, AZ, and mixed/mastered by Matthew Nelson of 'Foreword Studios' in Beverly Hills, CA.
