Bio

Jannae Jordan - Songwriter - Producer- Vocalist

Jannae Jordan has become one of those names in House music that is synonymous with strong vocals and meaningful lyrics. Jordan has worked with some of the best Dance music Producers of yesterday, today and tomorrow, domestically and abroad. Now that she is warmed up she is primed and ready to take on the rest of music world. She lovingly refers to her new sound as “ a hybrid of the crisp electronic vibe I love, the deep soulful house grooves that I have grown very comfortable with, and the nu-jazz, chill flava that has moved my soul for many years with a lil extra sumthin sumthin and a whole lot of truth and SOUL all up and through…” With this venture the Queens, NY born and bred songbird and songwriter also officially adds the title of Producer to her resume.

Raised on Disco, R&B, Motown, Gospel, Jazz, Show Tunes, Hip Hop, Rock and Standards it is no wonder that Jordan woke up one day and decided it was time to tackle some new sounds on and off the dance floor. Jordan is classically trained and has been professionally working since the age of 9 as opportunity and time permitted between school, Girl Scouts and her weekly Dance and Drama classes at New York’s Double Image Theater . Not to mention the fact that while many of her peers were hanging out at the local Shopping Mall , Jordan was gigging at some of New York City's most famous cabaret venues such as Don't Tell Mama's, and Sweet Waters, as well as working off Broadway and competing on a state wide level in Talent Competitions. Undoubtedly that foundation of professionalism,ethics and discipline from early on is a big part of what can be attributed to the fact that Jordan has become a guaranteed quality listen for Dance music aficionados worldwide.

 

Jordan's vocal performances have been called classic, soul stirring, up lifting, bold and sexy. One reviewer went as far as to call her “Amongst the best voices in world music today” upon hearing her 2006 break out hit “I Wanna Go”.  Her pro beginning with the much later released project "Reach 4 The Light" with Boyd Jarvis,  is how Jordan stepped on to the scene.  Since that time, For over a decade and a half  Jordan’s voice and words have rocked diehard club revelers and DJs around the world singing about love, politics, independence and faith. With each release from her debut release Produced by Tyrone Francis and Quentin Harris , " Sincere" and her follow up "Stronger" Produced by the Legendary David Camacho aka DJ Camacho, and Jameson Braye, all the way thru to her work with Allesandro Oliviero aka Monodeluxe, on the  Chillout hit  "Time" &  "Time: The REMIX PROJECT" , for Vibe Boutique Records,  she has grown and established herself as the genuine article, a soulful music “one to watch”.  For some that would be enough, yet today she challenges herself to step out of her recording comfort zone to step up and show what she believes she was really meant to do. “I refuse to be viewed as a one note chick, because I’m not a one note chick.”



With her hands full of new and exciting creative projects with some of House, Lounge and Electronica's best creative minds , Jordan still finds times to produce some NuJazz and NeoSoul tunes herself.   When asked how she arrived at her new sound and role as a Producer, Jordan pauses , smiles and very honestly replies,  “For years now I have had so many ideas! And even though I was the Vocalist, lead and background vocals, Songwriter and Vocal Arranger for 99.5 percent of the songs I've recorded, I had no real say or billing position on the final release as the Artist, that classification went to the DJ/Producers.  On one hand , I was  grateful that I was doing what I love, but on the other hand  there would be this subtle disconnect when the records would come out.  I found it to be rather anticlimactic, which was very frustrating and disheartening. Needless to say, I have been walking around with ideas, and a knowing, clear vision of what would work best for me sound wise for a long time.  I hear everything from Folk and classic Rock to Classical infused Jazz and yes, still House, in my head.   At any given time I find myself trying out new things.   I still love working with others it's great, and I learn so much."    

 

As for her feelings  about finally transitioning her sound across genre lines after years of making Dance music and taking time off  " I had to re-discover my voice and take a step back.  It was a risky move, but I took time off from the hustle and bustle of the Dance scene, and opted to spend my time and energy working on my craft and developing my skills as a Producer and true blue  Artist.  And the end result, is priceless! Plus it makes colloborating a much more balanced,equitable and satisfying process. I really get to be hands on now and that's only because I took the time to understand what it's really like to be in the Producers shoes.  For all the years I've been making music all of a sudden it all feels like I'm starting  over again, except with years of experience and hard earned confidence pushing me forward. It's very liberating and that feels really good!”

 

Jordan is currently focused on upcoming 2018 projects for her own Imprint,  as well as collaborations with  old and new friends.  

WELCOME!

I am a Writer and a Songwriter first and foremost, then a Singer and Producer. For me the magic is in the words. Words are powerful things! My song lyrics are always inspired whether I'm a hired gun on deck to find the words to tell someone else's personal story, or the featured vocalist and lyricist. The work is always personal on some level. Every word, melody and arrangement comes from a profoundly genuine place in my core. I love what I do!
