About

Rising British artist Jordan Max is exclusively streaming his sophomore EP Tales Of Us HERE (streamable here at midnight). Tales Of Us is shared alongside a brand new video for EP-featured single“Kingdom” HERE. Directed by David Helman (The Weeknd, Travis Scott, Vince Staples, Khalid, Zayn, Gucci Mane) “Kingdom” continues the story introduced in the visuals for Jordan’s previous single “Me, Mary & My Guitar” released last month. Billboard said, “Showcasing a unique sound, Max’s music features sharp songwriting accompanied by his raspy tenor.” Published by Danger Mouse and released via Neon Gold Records,Tales Of Us follows Jordan Max’s debut 2016 EP Only One Is King.

Jordan Max on “Kingdom”: “Kingdom” is the final song I wrote about a break up I went through a few years ago, the emotions at the time inspired a new feeling that brought out a different texture in my voice. This song is me signing off from that relationship and moving on from the dark days and heartache I went through after discovering how painful love can be.” 

On the Tales Of Us EP Jordan Max remarked, “These songs came from my life and events that happened to me in the last 2 years. From falling out of love and then the march to freedom.” This release marks Jordan Max’s sophomore EP, self-produced alongside Felix Joseph (Jorja Smith, Jesse James Solomon, Suspect, Elli Ingram), and mixed by Nathan Boddy(James Blake, SG Lewis, Bruno Major, Bakar).

Jordan Max made his debut in 2016 with his EP Only One Is King, written and recorded in the bedroom of his childhood home. Lead single “Hell” showcased his unique sound and earned him a spot on Complex’s“10 British R&B/Soul Artists To Watch in 2017,” in addition to praise from Consequence of Sound, i-D, Pigeons & Planes, Fader and more. The prestigious BBC Introducing series placed him on the industry’s radar, gaining high-profile fans in Zane LoweEbro Darden, and Pharrell Williams, even leading to a string of European tour dates supportingJorja Smith.

In 2017, GRAMMY award-winning producer Danger Mouse signed Jordan Max’s publishing and released the single “Out of Luck.” 2018 has seen him collaborating with producers Craze & Hoax (Emeli Sandé, Naughty Boy) and Felix Joseph and, after doing everything D.I.Y. in the past, the collaboration offered space for evolution.“[Working with producers] didn’t just improve the quality of the recordings, but allowed the songs to breathe more rather than me making it in my room with limitations,” he says. “It’s been exciting to take this to a new level.” While tapping collaborators and producers, Jordan Max stays true to his roots. “Soul is all about raw expressionism. I wanted to capture that whilst finding a common ground between alternative, blues, and a little hip-hop.”

Recent praise for Jordan Max:
“A voice to be reckoned with and a promising new talent that has our full attention… Eternal damnation never sounded so good.” – Pigeons & Planes
“Don’t let one of the most exciting new talents in UK music out of your sight” – NME
“Jordan Max has a voice that stops you dead: raspy, full of power, unshowy but straight to the heart.” – i-D Magazine
