When Jordana Nye’s church organist father first encouraged her to pursue music, he had no idea what he was about to unlock. Nye opted to play violin over the suggested piano before swapping out for a six-string, and now at just nineteen, Jordana‘s already built up quite the reputation with her mononymous bedroom pop project.
Jordana’s debut album Classical Notions of Happiness was first inspired in the wake of a high school friend’s suicide, fueled by the loss of youthful innocence and blind optimism and recorded between her home state Maryland, New York, and Nye’s new headquarters in Wichita, Kansas. With the addition of her three-piece backing band, Jordana opted to re-release Classical Notions of Happiness along with three new community-driven bookends that unwontedly but welcomely go way beyond what you’d expect from traditional bedroom pop. The redux edition of Classical Notions of Happiness came out last Friday so get your quarantined self in motion with one of the new ones, “Sway”!
