About Jordy Searcy:
Known for poignant, insightful lyrics that pinpoint the human experience as seen from a small town boy with big dreams, deep insight, and strong desire to connect, Jordy Searcy is the real thing. Bringing new life to the indie pop music scene, Jordy is renowned for his organic, fresh take on songwriting and his passion for bridging the gap between the artist and the audience.
Born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Jordy grew up playing music with his family, in his church, and on his own – finding his voice in music early on. Shaped by his early memories of writing and playing music with his parents and siblings, he put together his first mix tape of original songs as early as middle school. At just fourteen years old, he started playing shows for anyone who would listen. In 2014, Jordy landed a spot on NBC’s The Voice, where he was coached under Pharrell Williams. It was during this time that he shifted his focus from performing onto blazing his own trail as a songwriter and vocalist.
After leaving The Voice, Jordy packed up and moved to Nashville to pursue his career in earnest. It was during this early stage that he discovered what inspires his songwriting most¬–connecting with his audience. His 2018 EP, Dark in The City, was met with critical acclaim, launching him into the Nashville songwriting scene and a touring career of over 150 shows per year nationwide. The EP’s seven tracks are tangibly human¬–laced with lyrical depth and the true markings of a masterful songwriter. The process became like second nature for Jordy, “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.”
Jordy’s new music promises to deliver what he is known for: authentic, original music driven by his faith, emotional depth, and his intrinsic desire to connect with an audience. On writing the album, Jordy says, “it was a long process–I started between 250-300 songs, and in that discovered a whole new sound that I wouldn’t arrived 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 when we got into the studio. We wanted this record to sound like Julia Michaels meets The Beatles, and I think we got something pretty special.” The authenticity that he brings to his music and his live shows is what sets him apart. Pharrell Williams said it best, “There’s something different about Jordy.”
Nashville based alt-indie artist Gatlin combines instinctual humanity with daring vulnerability to craft musical moments of meaning and melody. She rides a motorbike. She wears leather. She’s not afraid to say “I love you”. She’s not afraid to say “I don’t”. Gatlin sings it how she sees it. Consistent through her range, Gatlin’s music brims with confessional lyricism and emotional storytelling. These songs blend a vast internal world of feelings and thoughts with a rich external world of people and places – bringing listeners to the girl who stands at the intersection, Gatlin. Her sounds too, emerge from two distinct landscapes. The mountains and roadways of folk roots and the sea and sky of young imagination collide in a spectral scene that evokes the likes of fellow troubadours Phoebe Bridgers and Maggie Rogers
Gatlin’s first releases arrived like wildfire and quickly earned a feature on TIDAL as the face of “Rising:Folk” as well as placement on Spotify’s “Fresh Folk” playlist. Atwood Magazine describes Gatlin as “a lyrically-potent, melodically-savy artistry that has truly found her niche in the world”.
Upcoming releases promise more of the beautiful and honest, more of the playful and profound, and more of the soul and the sounds that culminate in the spirit of the spitfire herself, Gatlin.
