Jordan Trotter - Jordan Trotter (2008)

Jordan Trotter's soulful and sultry voice stamps a resounding signature all over her charming and musically diverse debut album from Moonwatcher Music. This intriguing blend of Pop, Country, and Americana Roots music will introduce listeners to this artist's distinctive blend of influences, heard in her vocal style and songs. Each tune is sprinkled with subtle vocal nuances and moments that will make you want to replay the music to hear the artist sing a certain phrase...over and over. Jordan's love for many of the pre-eminent singer-songwriters of the past few decades, such as Bonnie Raitt, James Taylor, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Emmylou Harris is highlighted throughout the course of her self-titled album. Fans of multi-platinum contemporary artists such as Carrie Underwood, Norah Jones, and Kelly Clarkson will identify with her pristine blend of voices that is seemingly familiar, but also refreshingly unique. In the end, the most important ingredient in Jordan's music is her genuine ability to communicate each song's story through her emotive singing, giving the listener a common thread heard in each unique song. Mix in a dazzling smile, charismatic personality, and a dash of southern charm...and you get an irresistible combination.

Veteran Producer Joe Taylor (the successful former recording artist/producer for legendary label RCA Victor) assembled a stellar collection of songwriters and quality songs, including: the powerful pop/country ballad, It Matters To Me, co-written by veteran NYC songsmith, Jeff Franzel (who has previously had his hit songs recorded by Clay Aiken, Shawn Colvin, Hayley Westenra, and Taylor Dayne), and the spiritual ballad, Angels By My Side, written by hit songwriter Beth Nielsen Chapman (Faith Hill's This Kiss).

The choice of material and musical textures range from a mellow, funky reading of the Jimi Hendrix classic, The Wind Cries Mary to the upbeat, vivid storytelling of Bonnie & James (written by Jordan and Joe Taylor).

Other standout songs include the bluesy, sultry pop of I Want You, the latin-tinged, mellow sounds of Magia De La Luna, and the finely orchestrated, lush arrangement on the pop-country track Gave Her Wings.

Two classic pop tunes get extreme makeovers...check out the up-tempo, energetic cover of the Joni Mitchell classic, Car On A Hill and the rockin' version of the Aretha Franklin classic, Chain Of Fools.

Every lady has met her "Mr. Wrong", so don't miss the sassy, Southern-fried, funky tune, Ain't Enough.
