Title - 'Good Things'
Artist - Jordan Whitmore
For those not in the know, Texas-based singer-songwriter Jordan Whitmore is set to share her rootsy pop/Americana musical goodness with the world on September 6th, 2019, with the release of her rather excellent EP, Good Things.
Combining heartland rock 'n' roll guitars with bright pop hooks, Whitmore showcases her cross-genre sound on the new EP, which was produced by Brian Douglas Phillips (who also produced her 2014 album, Other Side).
An eclectic EP featuring six songs that excel at turning heavy source material into something beautiful, Good Things casts its net wide, heralding the shifting seasons in Whitmore's life with a bolder, broader sound.
1. 'Something Different'
2. 'All My Might'
3. 'Changing Your Mind'
4. 'What If'
5. 'Good Things'
6. 'I Wish You Would'
Now five albums into her career, and with obvious influences free flowing here on the new 6-track EP such as Aimee Mann, Shawn Colvin, Sheryl Crow and even Alabama Shakes, Whitmore opens with the Crow-esque 'Something Different' and backs that up sweetly with the early '90s guitar and deep vocal approach to 'All My Might,'
On an EP that is audibly more guitar-driven than her last album, Whitmore next delves into country, but swaddles it lovingly in a Hawaiian vibe on 'Changing Your Mind,' before that seamlessly gives way to the hipsway of the lyrically poignant 'What If.'
This vibrant, entertaining and sonically colorful new EP then rounds out with Whitmore's ode to Gary Clark Jr. on the conga-enhanced title track with the touching ballad 'I Wish You Would' (inclusive of additional percussion care of seashells) bringing the new musical journey to a close.
“I’m excited to finally share this project with the world,” Whitmore says. “After walking through a personally tough season these past few years, the creative process of writing and recording Good Things felt a bit like coming up for air."
"Thematically, these aren’t overtly shiny, happy songs, but there’s an underlying optimism and energy that feels really good to me, and I hope the listener feels that too.”
