Jordan Jones Shares An Impeccable Summer Bop ‘Flawless’

Jordan Jones was born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and is a songwriter and composer.

Music has always been a method for him to connect with others. Listening to music that makes you feel like it was written just for you is a special experience.

Sincere connection with anybody who enters his reality has been one of the benefits of travelling throughout the globe for him.

I was able to premiere his new track, “Flawless,” during our chat. He was trying to portray the feeling he had in his head when he wrote this song.

He aimed for a breezy, carefree, and seductive vibe with this one. It was important for him to make Flawless seem like a song that could stand on its own and not be weighed down by anything else.

What is your real name?
My full name is Jordan Frazer Lee Jones

What’s your official Showbiz name?
Jordan Jones

How did you get into music?
I grew up with a lot of music playing in the house. Listening to lyrics becomes my bible. I love hearing lessons in songs that artists write. I bought my first guitar when I was around 16 but never really learned how to play it.

I didn’t get into music seriously until I was about 28 after I had a bad neck injury from snowboarding. I had a friend lend me his guitar, as I didn’t have one at the time, while I was at home with nothing to do and the rest is history. I ended up learning how to play fairly quickly and started writing and touring shortly after.

What field or genre are you into and how would you describe it?
I’m definitely into Pop music and that is my main direction. To be honest it’s a new project so I’m just playing around waiting for a pocket to sit in. I’m not sure how to answer that questions. Lol, what I can describe is my vision.

So my purpose is to make sure people feel love and my vision is to share that message through my art. Over the years I’ve immersed myself in a few genres. With this project, I’m pulling from what I’ve learned by playing with talented friends and using Pop as a hub to make sounds I would listen to myself.

I want my music to reflect the idea of ruthless compassion paired with courageous vulnerability. I dig a sexy low end with a top line that cuts through to create the right vibe for the message of the song. My intention is always to make it as relatable and fun as possible.

What were your first project and the people you worked with and which year?
The first project I was in was a ska/punk band when I was like 21 called GDP. That would have been around 2001. It’s been a minute haha. A few of my friends got together and we would play out of one of our garages. Honestly, that project didn’t last long. It’s just a fun little project. I didn’t get into music seriously until I was like 28 though.

Who or what inspires you or motivates you? And why?
I’m inspired by anyone that chases their genuine self. I think seeing people chase their dreams, whatever that dream is, is magical.

Hearing and seeing genuine art spark a need to create. When I write I like to use my own lessons and experiences to create a vibe that is relatable. I’m inspired by everyone who is in my reality.

Any models you look up to? With reason(s) why?
Years back I really got into delta blues and found this guy named Son House. The dude changed my world. The way he would beat up his guitar when he played was so amazing. But that’s the blues… I’m assuming you may be more interested in who in the Pop or R&B world I admire.

When I was a kid I’d listen to a lot of Micheal Jackson. My mom had a shiny winter glove that looked a lot like his iconic glove so I’d steal it and wear it everywhere. His music really connected with me.

I loved that his music always had a message. I can go on for hours about artists from the past but when it comes to newer shit… I’m a huge fan of artists like The Weeknd, Halsey, Pink $weats, Justin Bieber, 6black, Leon Bridges, August 08, Harry Styles, and Anderson.Paak, H.E.R., Summer Walker, 11:11, Common. I could go on and on haha

What do you look out for in this line of business?
I just look out for anything genuine. Vulnerability is super important when it comes to all art forms so really that’s what I’m looking for. Having honest people around me that I can trust is something I focus on surrounding myself with.

I’m lucky to have a really good team in place to help with some of the business sides of this industry that I’m still learning to manage. I definitely love having a trim to lean on when there is something I’m not sure how to do.

What are some of the challenges you face in your career path?
I think one of the main challenges I face right now is just having enough time to do it all. Writing the music and recording is the fun part but it takes a serious grind behind the scenes when it comes to the marketing side.

I have a full-time job so music right now is my side hustle with hopes that I will be able to focus 100% of my energy on it in the future. If I could have more time in the day that would be AMAZING!

How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?
I think it’s been both good and bad for the music business. It made it so much easier to share your music but on the flip, the industry is so saturated with talent it takes something special to really break through it all.

Streaming sites have made it great for music fans to listen to their favourite artists on repeat and find new artists to love for years. On the flip side of that, streaming services really don’t pay artists well so it’s gone back to what it was in the past.

Musicians have to be on the road grinding it out making money entertaining, selling merch, and we all need to find more creative ways to monetize everything. Really it is what it is. We need to be able to move forward with the industry regardless of what our own belief systems are so we don’t get left behind.

Do you have any advice for aspiring songwriters?
Just be genuine and write what is real to you at that moment. Don’t worry about what others think about your art. Create what feels right. And most importantly create to create, don’t worry about any accolades that may come along with it.

What is your current project about?
My current project is just that. I’m creating to create. Over the years I have learned that my purpose in life is to spread love. To make people feel that they belong and they deserve love. My solo project is about sharing the lessons I’ve learned over the years while tapping into the idea of courageous vulnerability. Also, music has always been like a religion for me so I just want to give back to the church of music ya know.

What are your hobbies?
I’ve been snowboarding for a minute so that would be my main hobby. I also ride motorcycles, l longboard, and spend time hanging out walking my dog.

What do you do aside from this profession?
I’m actually a fine finisher/cabinet builder by trade and I work for a construction company as an Estimator. I started working with my pops when I was pretty young so I’ve been around construction for a while. I don’t build much myself anymore but I still enjoy building stuff for family and friends.

What is one message you would give to your fans?
Always be true to yourself and don’t let the judgment of others hold you back from chasing your dreams. I say this from the experience of letting that happen for too long lol. It’s never too late to make a change towards doing what you love. Nothing worth anything comes easy to be willing to put in some work but I promise the feeling of even the chase feels so good. Treat people with kindness. And most importantly love yourself!
