JORDAN ST.CYR - sonically compelling music that matters
If "salt of the earth" could describe an artist and his music, there is perhaps no more apt phrase for roots/rocker, Jordan St.Cyr. A sincere, veracious performer with a talent for writing melodies to be visited over many years.
Born and raised in the prairies, with most of his upbringing in rural Manitoba, Jordan is well versed in the ethic of hard work and the honest, down-to-earth values so often associated with life in the country. Balancing married life with his wife and two kids, helping with a family business, and a clear calling to music, is something he embraces whole-heartedly as part of his journey. If asked what he would do if he had to choose one over the other, his quick reply is: all, with excellence.
His influences were initially drawn from his father's own love of music and songwriting, and have evolved to include a broad range of contemporaries. He's explored several musical outlets, including a stint in the Winnipeg rock scene as part of a band, but in 2011, he decided to release a solo project, "Let Go" receiving airplay locally and internationally, and garnering him an opening spot for Burton Cummings. The project also caught the attention of Golden West Radio, who offered him a grant to continue recording original music.
With a raw, contemporary sound, and lyrics that are ready to explore real-life topics, Jordan could certainly find his songs in many corners of the entertainment industry. Driving all of it is a passion to write and present sonically compelling music that matters, infused by unabashed transparency. His new album, "Anchors" is set to release late 2013.
