This is a new alternative folk/rock release from award-winning alt-rocker, Jordan Paul.  I think it would be a great fit on the station!

Some info on the record and artist:

With symbolic inspiration from English poet William Blake’s late 18th century works — including The Four Zoas — Jordan Paul’s new EP, “Night Moon,” is the Canadian alt-rocker’s self-professed sonic probe into the seemingly opposing yet harmonious forces that encompass all things ‘human nature.’

“Night Moon is about the nature of every being,” he reflects, “and the complex interplay of elements that fuse together to form the whole of all that is within and without us.

“It is the contrast of dark and light… Of life and death… Of every opposing force that must exist in twisted harmony as all things seek homeostasis and balance at all times.”

So far, “Night Moon” has proven ultimate evolution in Jordan Paul’s distinctive style. His music boasts notes of delicate, spacious, exploratory alt. folk/rock — all with a shadowy edge.  Paul has been dubbed “Canada’s Jeff Buckley” by three-time GRAMMY Award-winning producer Chris Birkett (Led Zeppelin, Talking Heads, Buffy Sainte-Marie). Sleeping Bag Studios’ Jeremy Gladstone has mused he’d be the result “if Queen, Mimicking Birds, Radiohead and Led Zeppelin had a beautiful love child.”

As a songwriter, he has worked with 18 GRAMMY Award-winning producer James Sanger (U2, Dido, Phil Collins), Darryl James of The Strumbellas (Double Platinum in Canada; Gold in USA and Australia), Matt Lipscombe (Lily Frost, Bran Van 3000), Amanda Mabro (Ron Sexsmith), Martin Kerr (#1 in Canada), Khalid Yassein (Wild Rivers), Chris Cargnello, and more. His music has received notable sync placements including The CW’s ‘The Secret Circle,’ Shaw TV’s ‘When Paintings Come Alive,’ MTV's 'Real World,’  BBC Canada’s ‘Orphan Black,’ and LaJoie De Vie's short-film ‘Best Budz.’  

Paul's forthcoming studio record, “Already Gone” will ultimately feature 11 original songs, including “Night Moon.” The album was recorded at Jon Anderson’s (Aidan Knight, Andy Shauf, Said The Whale) Protection Island Studios in Maple Ridge, BC and mastered by Noah Mintz (Marcy Playground, Broken Social Scene, Matt Mays).

Thank you for your time and consideration,
