Greater Manchester four piece Jordan Allen are set to kick off their forthcoming UK tour in Cardiff.
Comprising Danny Quin (Guitar), Kieran Loughran (Bass), and Nathan Howard (Drums), the band boast an Ace amongst their hand with charismatic front man, lyricist (and source of band’s namesake): Jordan.
Guided by the esteemed Brontone Management (Muse, The Pogues, Pulled Apart by Horses), the band retreated to Peter Gabriel’s infamous Real World Studios where they spent a fruitful spell sowing the first seeds of their back catalogue. Armed with a string of head-turning singles including ‘Helter Skelter’, ‘Too Much Too Soon’ and ‘Dancing In The Dark’, the band took the airwaves of BBC Radio 6 Music and Radio X by storm, selling out gigs and soon enough found themselves invited to perform upon the hallowed stages of Leeds and Reading Festivals.
Shortly after their triumphant Reading & Leeds shows, the band were dealt a devastating and derailing blow as Jordan lost his father in a short-lived battle with cancer. Throughout history many a band has fallen apart over less. Yet driven with a overwhelming sense of determination, grit and love for the lost Jordan drew inspiration from the experience to create something hopeful, optimistic and as such conjured his most poignant work yet: ‘110 Ways To Make Things Better’. A timeless and endearing tribute to Jordan’s father Kevin.
As testament to the adversity they had faced and their stoic ability to rise above, Jordan Allen’s ‘110 Ways to Make Things Better’ was voted by the public as the No.1 anthem of Virgin Radio’s Freshfest as picked from 1000’s of entries.
In 2018, the band return reinvigorated and reaching for the heavens with what may be their most ambitious single to date: ’Synchronised’; a track that sees Jordan embracing the chaos of the last few years and wielding it into one of their most powerful and potent releases.
- Catch the band as they kick off their UK tour at The Moon, Cardiff on June 7.
