R&B/Hip Hop star Jordan Croucher is making up for a late start in his music career in a big way with the soulful songs from his forthcoming second album. Croucher grew up in Halifax and Toronto and eventually hooked up with multi-Juno Award-nominated artist/producer Classified who produced Croucher’s 2007 debut album, “No Dress Code”. The 13 track record spawned the hit singles and videos “Selfish Times”, “Feelin’ Fine”, “So Addicted”, “Won’t Let Go” and “It’s Raining”. It also earned Croucher a CBC Galaxie Rising Star prize, an East Coast Music Award nomination and an appearance on the CBC Television special, Barenaked East Coast Music. With Croucher’s undeniable talents as a singer and lyricist, it should be no surprise that he’s now poised to take the next step up the music ladder using the name JRDN. He’s been working with Toronto’s Grammy Award-nominated Kuya Productions songwriting and production team, who’ve worked with some of the biggest names in the business. Croucher has spent time in New York City, Los Angeles, Atlanta and various Canadian outposts writing and recording songs for his sophomore album. Since he’s adopted the abbreviated stage name and surrounded himself with all new people since “No Dress Code”, Croucher in some ways sees his forthcoming LP as another debut effort. There’s a noticeable difference in the sonics between the old and new material, and Croucher has also turned a page lyrically. “On the first album, I talked about family and friends and my life,” explains Croucher. “But on this one, I’m talking about the women in my life.” The hook-filled lead single “U Can Have It All” has garnered very positive reactions. The song’s video has a surprising twist at the end that Croucher reveals was inspired by The Jackson 5’s 1971 hit, “Sugar Daddy”. Another new song that Croucher is particularly excited about is “High Definition,” about which he says: “I think it defines me as an R&B guy. Every R&B guy has to have that one love song that really raises a woman on a pedestal, and I think this is it”. The sky’s the limit as far as JRDN’s music career is concerned. All signs indicate that he really can have it all and for that we have chosen him as our Featured Artist Of The Week.
