This week, Apt613’s Josh Lemoine chats with singer-songwriter Ezra Jordan, who will be in town February 2 for a show at Cafe Dekcuf. The son of industry veterans Amy Sky and Marc Jordan, and brother of Zoe Jordan of the band Petty Victories, he appears on the January 31 episode of CTV’s The Launch. In the upcoming episode he works with two mentors, superstar Fergie and Canadian producer/composer Stephan Moccio.
“Obviously Fergie is amazingly talented and a total pro, and Stephan Moccio is this amazing producer. He worked on ‘Wrecking Ball’ with Miley Cyrus. He wrote the [Vancouver] Olympic theme a few years back, so he’s very accomplished.”
Jordan has known “since I was born” that he wanted a career in the music industry. He played piano ever since he was a kid, and thought that he wanted to work behind the scenes producing music. However, a ski accident resulted in a serious leg injury that required 18 months of recovery. It made piano playing difficult, so he gave singing and songwriting a try, and realized he liked it. He hasn’t looked back since.
Ezra released his new single “Lonely Now” on January 26, which he shared with us on Apt613.
This interview aired on CHUO 89.1FM on January 30, 2018.
