It's not very often that you'll come across an artist that has over 1 million artist streams across Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer and Google Play, before they've even released their debut album but Vancouver-based pop artist Jordan Waller has achieved this incredible feat. And following the recent launch of his new single 'Moonlight', Jordan Waller is excited to announce the release of his debut album Melancholy Dream on January 25th with the Vancouver Album Release Show on February 2nd at VENUE. See below for complete details.
Jordan Waller's music career began in August 2016, when his debut single 'This Feeling' was released, landing him a spot on many Canadian contemporary hit radio (CHR) stations with the track peaking at #46 on the Billboard Canada Top 100. Since the release of his debut single, Jordan has released 2 more tracks - 'Let You Down' in September 2017 and 'Staying Up Late' in October 2018. And despite all of the success that Jordan's had with his single releases, recording a full-length album wasn't always part of his plan.
"My single 'Let You Down' at the time was just the second song I had ever released and there was no real plan for an album yet," says Jordan Waller. "I knew it was the next step but I didn’t know what it was going to be about or if I really had anything to say. I was honestly pretty terrified because I wasn’t sure if I could create a full length album that felt cohesive or if I would be able to tell a story. I write songs out of experiences, and the album came together after I went through a really tough relationship and it ended up shaping the whole record."
After the release of Melancholy Dream, Jordan is planning to get out on the road and tour in support of the album. He's been slowly building his fanbase with the help of his energetic live show and has landed some key tour spots, including opening for Toronto-based trio NEW CITY on their Western Canadian tour dates last year.
"Right now the biggest thing for me is getting this album out and playing the show," says Jordan. "After that we'll have more shows coming up, starting in the spring. My biggest goal for 2019 is to get out on tour!"
Melancholy Dream will be available on Spotify, Apple Music/iTunes and other digital retailers and streaming services on January 25th. For more information and the most up to date tour schedule, please visit: jordanwallermusic.com
