On a Jordan Run to the top’’ – Don O’Mahony (Evening Echo)
Effortlessly blending the earthy folk influences of Hozier and Mick Flannery with the anthemic heartland rock of early Killers, are Jordan Run; an exciting Irish indie collective fronted by multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, Aaron O’Sullivan.
With the release of two singles in 2019 so far, it’s clear that Aaron is a songwriter of complete sincerity. The lushness of the verses in ‘Olivia’ give way to soulful, reflective choruses (‘She gives me peace of mind’); while the poignant vocal of ‘Change Your Mind’ (Take a second chance if you need it, I loved you from the start) showcase a dynamic singer at his most expressive. In short, Jordan Run’s music is sophisticated while remaining relatable; catchy, while keeping its cool.
This quiet intensity is a unique element of the band's live shows, which have included supports for Cory Wong (Vulfpeck) James Arthur, Ariel Posen and The Wedding Present. The band recently played the Ruby Sessions and a packed out show in Coughlans, Cork.
Jordan Run are releasing their debut EP in early 2020. An Irish tour will also be announced shortly.
