FRESH: ‘Chemistry’ – Kyle Jordan

Kyle Jordan releases “Chemistry”.

by Christopher Smith

“Chemistry” is a more modern telling of a love story with deep, gritty bass lines and fresh sounding vocals. The story of “Chemistry” revolves around a budding relationship that is stuck somewhere between wanting more but being completely content with the relationship just being physical.

Kyle Jordan is an alt-pop singer/songwriter out of Long Island, New York. With musical influences spanning all the way from 80’s synth-pop to the 90s punk scene and all the way to today’s electric and frenetic style of production, Kyle fuses the powerful songwriting and unique musical character of Stevie Wonder, Lionel Richie, John Mayer, and Ed Sheeran with an added touch of gritty electronic production in the vein of artists like Blackbear and Billie Eilish.

Kyle’s live sets are known to be a fun mix of catchy original music as well as classic bar-room anthems that are sure to get everybody in the audience engaged with the show. Kyle Jordan started his career as a performer in Boston, Massachussetts playing at bars, clubs and festivals spanning from the original Cheers bar in Beacon Hill to The Big E festival in Springfield. After his move back into the New York music scene, Kyle Jordan has hit the ground running with performances all over Manhattan, Brooklyn and Long Island including venues such as The Bitter End and Rockwood Music Hall.

Kyle’s music is as instantly relatable as it is contagiously upbeat. His debut single “Soul” is a classic story of a contentious relationship played over a quickly recognizable beat with a cheery and confident melody. Kyle’s debut “Lost” EP is being released in the coming months with the first single ‘IDLMIL’ having been released in September.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
