Jordan Phillips is a Scottish vocalist who combines an instinctual focus on lyrical content with subtle textural moments, and an intense vocal vulnerability. She is capable of delivering dark and resonant tones in folk and soul styles, light and articulate pop vocals, as well as a bright and punchy sound in rock genres.
Her background in musical theatre has been instrumental in developing a strong and mature sound. A graduate of Glasgow Academy of Musical Theatre Arts’ junior school, Jordan appeared in many stage productions, including in principal roles and lead vocalist/ ensemble roles, in shows such as Oliver! and Cinderella. These experiences have allowed for a confident and carefully crafted performance transferable across most popular music styles, which was nurtured at Edinburgh Napier University on the BA (Hons) Popular Music course.
At present, Jordan performs with function band Juniper at venues across Edinburgh. Performing with Juniper has strengthened her love for music and the release that comes with collaborating with close friends. In addition to this, she is regularly involved in session work and capable of finding her own truth in other musicians’ projects. Currently, she is working on her own compositions that draw inspiration from artists like Angel Olsen, Phoebe Bridgers, Hayley Williams and Faye Webster. Themes of home; comfort and discomfort; grief and shy optimism inspired the writing that materialised in her final year of university.
