About Jordan August
Hans Christian Anderson once said, “Where words fail, music speaks.” And from the moment you hear Jordan August’s music, one thing is certain…it speaks. From his heart and his soul. No matter the stage, venue or crowd size, Jordan always delivers the same deeply rooted passion and energy.
Growing up in a musical family, Motown and soul were the dominant sounds throughout his childhood. In his teens and early 20s, his evolving interests led him to folk singers and songwriters. Influenced by fellow Baltimore musician Cris Jacobs, and blues revivalist, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jordan’s drive and talent helped him quickly mature from a backing musician to a front-man and soloist.
A Baltimore City native who also spent four years in Philadelphia, city life has been the inspiration behind both Jordan’s music and lyrics. From his first note to his last, you can actually feel the grit, grind and glamour of city life captured in the emotion of every song.
Jordan’s debut album, “Sunday Morning,” portrays his unique spin on life and living in Baltimore. Drawing inspiration from artists like The Lone Bellow, The Lumineers and Chris Stapleton, the album captures the arc of Jordan's story in an eclectic sonic presentation.
