Jodan Feliz Invites You to Come to the River

Jordan Feliz Seattle Concert May 18, 2017.
(LMG Concerts)


While most are just now getting to know Jodan Feliz, he’s actually been around for a while now, but not as we know him now. He began his music career as a heavy metal singer. According to his website, that type of music was never his passion. Then he became a church worship leader. Today, his “sound” is self-described as “soulful R&B-grove-pop" and his hit song in "The River."

Jordan Feliz’s debut project, Beloved, features a lot of the 70’s sensibilities into his modern mix. “I was the kid growing up with the headphones on listening to every lick and reading the lyrics,” Jordan says. “My dad had a collection of cassettes. My mom had some vinyl. I discovered artists like the Commodores, Bill Withers, and Nat King Cole through them. When I was in the studio making Beloved, I told my producers I didn’t want thirty guitars stacked on one track. I didn’t want five different guitar tones. I want to put one guitar sound on a song and find a way to make that one lick sound massive, the way those 70’s artists were able to do. If you stack too many sounds on one track you can lose the song in all that clutter. Building ‘clean’ tracks on Beloved was very intentional.”
