FRESH: ‘Cheap Therapy’ EP – Ezra Jordan

Ezra Jordan releases “Cheap Therapy”

Following on from his single “Cliffs“, which we featured back in January, singer/songwriter Ezra Jordan has just released his bumper-length, seven-track EP, “Cheap Therapy”, which includes the new single “In Case”, featuring Willa, as well. Ezra tells us that while it’s been a long journey from conceptualisation to release, he realises now that this project is really a culmination of everything he has done since he started really taking this music thing seriously, or perhaps even earlier than that.

Ezra enlightens us further: “The whole EP was produced by Goldchain and I, with some other collaborators (Matt Kahane, Quin Kiu, Elijah Woods, and Julian Psihogios) chipping in production on the songs they helped write. Funnily enough, one of the biggest recurring problems throughout the lifespan of the relationship ‘Cheap Therapy’ was written about, was that I travelled/worked too much and didn’t have enough time to dedicate to her. That theme continued into the creative process of this record, where everything was fairly run-and-gun and we worked whenever we had the time/some kind of place to go. ‘Cheap Therapy’ started off being about me and some things I was going through, but now it’s really for all of you”.

“Cliffs” is included on the EP along with “In Case” and the previously released “Easy” and “Is It Just Me”? along with three other new songs. We showcased Willa to you last year with her track “Cause You Did“, and since then the young Canadian has really been making tracks with her own music and more recently, with her collaboration with Ezra on “In Case”, which has such great atmosphere and vibe as the track progresses with Ezra and Willa’s vocals perfectly complimenting each others. “In Case” could easily be a ballad/duet but just moves and grooves you from beginning to end. This is a must listen to and deserves to be heard by a wide audience the world over. Spread the word…!

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!
