Having played for Munich’s Hauskonzerte series (following in the footsteps of artists like Glen Hansard, and BOY), being PULS Radio’s Artist of the Week in June 2016, and having Bayern 2 Zündfunk name the Jordan Prince Band EP as Demo of the Year (2016), Prince continues to spread the sound of his addictive body of work.
Prince has performed for the national arts organization RAW: Natural Born Artists, and the international video series, Balcony TV, where he won the Global Rumble twice in a row (besting such artists as Edward Sharpe, Deer Tick, and Brendan Benson). He was also featured on UK's Amazing Radio with host Simon Raymonde (Cocteau Twins).
Jordan has self-released 3 LPs (Horse, Home Recordings, and The Deer Jump), 3 EPs (Parade, Jordan Prince Band, and o Manual), along with several singles over the last decade. He has written music for a multitude of short films based out of New Orleans, LA which have gained significant acclaim, one awarding him Best Song for "Fresh Ground" at the UNO Film Festival in 2014. He plans to release his fourth LP this year.
Jordan Prince – Woman (One of These Days)
March 4th, 2017 | By: Cassandra Dailey | Buffablog
“Woman (One of These Days)” is a refreshing glass of acoustic indie-folk from Jordan Prince’s forthcoming EP. Honing in on the atmospheric storytelling akin to Passenger or The Lumineers, Prince’s track is pleading and gentle, while expressing a sense of helplessness. He conveys a mix of exasperation and resolution as he croons “I’ll break my neck, one of these days / If you don’t stand where I can see / One of these days, you’re gonna kill me.”... READ MORE

The songwriter Jordan Prince moved from New Orleans to Munich because of love. That he has arrived here proves his new EP, which he presents in the bar Gabanyi

If you ask Jordan Prince about the things he particularly misses in his home town of New Orleans, a small stream of images soon unfolds before the inner eye. That's always changing, he says, but currently he misses the boiling hot summers and the depths of the people, the hearty Catfish Po 'Boy sandwiches with remoulade sauce and the tree with the windmills in the city park. In addition, he misses driving down the wide Carrollton Avenue in the car, with the windows being lowered, and deeply immerses himself in the atmosphere of this harbor town in the swampy south of the USA, which also under the nickname "The Big Easy"...

New Orleans is known for its jazz, Mardi Gras and stressed casualness. But the new export camp from the USA is called Jordan Prince! (audio)

As far as I know you just came back from a trip. You were in the mountains for a while to work on your new album "12 Songs for 12 Friends". How different was the process working on it, compared to booking a studio in the city? Well this was actually the most different experience I ever had with recording anything, because for the first time ever there was a back and forth. There was a funding and I have never experienced anything like that before... READ MORE
Band of the week: Jordan Prince (TRANSLATED FROM GERMAN)
August 24th, 2016 | Rita Argauer | Süddeutsche Zeitung
The songwriter Jordan Prince left the USA for his love and has been making music for a year in Munich. His EP released in July goes beyond normal US guitar folk and sounds like science fiction. The world, which on the one hand becomes more and more crowded (alienated in the other direction, of course), still contains more than political turmoil and economic imbalances. It also creates unusual love stories - and ultimately new music. Just a few years ago, the US-American Gabriel Miller Phillips flushed to Munich - because of love. A serious relationship about the distance Munich-New York is, in the long run, a quite difficult undertaking... READ MORE
Welcome the Prince (TRANSLATED FROM GERMAN)
June 23rd, 2016 | By: Florian Kreier | PULS
Munich has a new Prince - the songwriter Jordan Prince from New Orleans. His songs are so sad and lost that one can not believe how teddy-bear the elector Munich plays his concerts.
What you need to know ... ... Jordan Prince really means that. Where he comes from, this is a normal name. He's from New Orleans. That's why his accent is also so dope and you can say he plays American folk with all that belongs to it: beautiful guitar pickings, deep to absurd-comic lyrics and polyphonic singing. Say it loud, say it clear: Everybody welcome here. We agree on that... READ MORE
