Jordan Rakei jeune australien polyvalent, à la fois chanteur, compositeur, producteur et musicien, se fait connaître en 2014, avec la sortie de son première EP « Franklin’s Room » composé de six morceaux. C’est avec surprise qu’on découvre la justesse et la beauté de sa voix, rythmée aux sons des accords de soul et de reggae. Cet artiste continue son ascension quelques mois plus tard lorsqu’il prête sa voix pour accompagner FKJ sur le morceau « Learn To Fly ». Telle une constante,l’harmonie entre la musique et son timbre de voix se prête toujours aussi bien. C’est au début de l’année 2015 que Jordan Rekei sort son nouvel EP , « Groove Curse » sur le label : Soul Has No Tempo. Ce bijou de cinq morceaux, aux accents très soul, passe délicieusement bien pour débuter les beaux jours.

Il a la capacité avec sa voix profonde de communiquer le message et l’émotion portés par le texte et la musique. Multi-instrumentiste, Jordan Rakei , maîtrise dans ses différents morceaux le synthétiseur ou encore la guitare électrique. Malgré toutes ses aptitudes, il s’entoure néanmoins d’artistes non moins talentueux comme Gwen Bunn (qui étudie dans la fameuse école « Berklee College of Music » à Boston et qui coproduit notamment le rappeur américain Schoolboy) pour son premier titre : Street Light. @Delicieuse Musique

Son nouvel album Origin sortira le 14 juin 2019.

Aged 18, Jordan self-released his debut EP “Franklin’s Room” in 2013 via Bandcamp. Getting his start as a “bedroom producer”, he spent most of his days fine-tuning his production and songwriting skills but quickly outgrew the humble moniker as he began to establish himself as a diverse artist able to effortlessly blend soul, jazz and hip-hop. The more time he spent in Brisbane, however, the more he found himself “stuck in a bubble”, burrowing deeper into his natural lean toward introversion and struggling to connect with others socially. It wasn’t until the release of “Groove Curse”, the 2014 EP that garnered strong support from North America and Europe, that Jordan felt the pull away from Brisbane and decided to make the 10,000 mile journey to London.

With his feet on the ground in London – a city three times smaller in size than Brisbane but far more congested in population – Jordan had no choice but to throw himself into London’s music scene and he made efforts to connect with everyone he could. “I had no idea what I was getting myself into”, he explains. “When I moved to London I had to deal with my introversion through ‘exposure therapy’. Everyday I met new people for a whole year. I met every producer, songwriter, and musician I could. You have to improve as a person to improve as an artist”.

Serendipitously, Jordan’s introversion and social exposure was the kindling that resulted in his 2016 release “Cloak”, the debut album that shifted his entire songwriting and musical approach, stripped back his tendencies to keep others out of reach from his creative process, and saw him tour the record across sold out venues in Europe, the UK, Asia, Australia, and dates at Pitchfork Paris and Annie Mac’s AMP.
