Jordan Hull is an indie singer-songwriter originally from Dayton, OH—home to Guided By Voices, Kim and Kelley Deal, Dave Chappelle, The Ohio Players, Tommy James and the Shondells, to name a few…an unassuming pool of talent and DIY ingenuity. After guerrilla recording his first album in a series of apartments on quarter-inch tape in Dayton in 2008 with Engineer Patrick Himes, Pat convinced the then 19 year-old songwriter to move to Nashville.
Hull has lived in Nashville for the better part of the decade. Dropping in and out of school. Releasing a follow up album in 2012 on Philly label Ropeadope (Snarky Puppy). Traveling the country playing gigs anywhere that would have him. “It’s a charmed life,” he says with a smile.
His music can be described as a revival of the 70's singer-songwriter, citing Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Cat Stevens, and Harry Nilsson as influences.
This year Hull plans to release his 3rd album: “Somewhere Is A Place To Be.” And is currently working on editing and polishing songs for future projects.
" It feels like I’m writing, ‘On The Road'... the Musical."
They even had a theme song. It was so cute. (They were my daughters.)
I once knew a bunch of girls that were starting a band called the Baberahams (as in Baberaham Lincoln.) I'm sort of sad that never happened.
Whatever happens, at least I won my first magic the gathering draft tournament last night. No one can take that from me.
