Jordy Searcy is a small-town boy with big dreams. Raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, he started his interest in music with his family. And at fourteen, he began to perform in little scenes in his town. After that, he decided to subscribe to NBC’s musical show The Voice, where he was coached by Pharrell Williams who said: “There’s something different about Jordy”.
In 2018, he released his debut EP Dark In The City, which was met with critical acclaim, leading to over 150 shows per year nationwide. And through his first experience as a songwriter and performer, he realized he was fit to music process: “The day-to-day repetition of songwriting is something I really have grown to love. I think it’s a muscle I will always enjoy exercising”.
And indeed, his second EP is to be released late 2019. In the meantime, we discovered a new track dropped on September 21st titled “Better”. He brings new life to indie pop music scene with a romantic ballad which talks about how a lack of self-confidence could impact love. “I love you ‘cause I don’t love me“, he sings.
With his high vocal technique, he brings us into an emotionally rich song with intimate lyrics. The mix between guitar, piano, drum, and hi-hat cymbal it’s perfectly texture and invigorates. Combining soaring harmonies with emotional lyrics, he completely transport us.
“it was a long process […] and in that, discovered a whole new sound that I wouldn’t arrive at without that process. Lucas Morton’s production was also an essential part of choosing and forming the songs, as I feel like the recordings took on a life beyond the songwriting. We wanted this record to sound like Julia Michaels meets The Beatles, and I think we got something pretty special”, said the young musician about his upcoming EP.
