The Parade EP is a fresh take on Indie/Country/Folk songwriting. Containing an air of youthful curiosity, picturesque nostalgia, and poetic darkness, Jordan's lyrics and melodies help shift the mindset of what the Country genre can be. The old standard sound of guitar and banjo are accompanied by a finely tuned sense of awareness seldom found in today's Indie music. The songs are comfortable, but carry a purpose not to be taken for granted.
The Parade EP was recorded at SOUNZZ Studios in Immenstadt, DE. All lyrics and melodies were written by Jordan Prince. All other arrangements and instrumentation were performed by Tim Hecking. The EP was also recorded and produced by Tim Hecking. This is Jordan's second time working with Tim, the first being 2013's The Deer Jump.
"[Jordan's] new EP convinces the listener with its authenticity. Nothing here is constructed...This is real, and it's coming from deep down. We want more of it, Jordan."
- Sascha Seelemann: Bayern 3
"Ultimately, a skillful performance to say the least, the irony is that a song entitled “Parade” is indeed an unassuming yet masterfully crafted indie-folk tune. No smoke or mirrors, and no unnecessary instrumentation either, just solid songwriting from start to finish."
- Leks Maltby: Aside/Beside
"Jordan Prince’s take on a life of endless possibilities consigned to a pile of broken dreams is one he chooses to dictate in a manner akin to the warm expanses of a sirocco breeze. As such it is a dichotomy of easy acoustics versus the harsh realities of the psychedelic prism as viewed from the end of a bottle. I’d wager you’ll think of Simon & Garfunkel who were masterful in similarly pulling the rug from beneath a mirage of soothing sounds."
