Jordy Maxwell is set to release his second EP, 'Hello, Goodbye' this September. This latest collection of songs explores the return & loss of something so incredibly beautiful. It's real, meaningful and relatable to those who have experienced loss in their lives but still have that positive light glimmering in their body. The 5 track Ep varies from sweet folk songs, emotion filled slow burners and finishes with a story about Jordy's fall from Grace which showcases Jordy in his rawest and most vulnerable form.
Jordy Maxwell is an electrician from Perth with feelings. Since playing his first show in 2017, he has proven how important music is for people to express their stories and to experience an emotion through his heartfelt, vulnerable lyrics and his soulful, raw voice. Though mostly a sunny and lively personality, Maxwell can hold an audience with his mix of raw emotion and light-hearted humour to accompany his endearing performances.
The first single off the expected EP is 'Long Road Home' featuring talented Keeley Connolly, follows a similar vibe of previous tracks with arpeggio chords played on the acoustic guitar and that lead amicable smooth soulful voice from Maxwell. 'Long Road Home' and 'You Belong' are quite different but still hold a homogenous feel. 'Long Road Home' being a little less upbeat and more 'reverby' compared to 'You Belong' which features a strong back beat. His music has a very unique yet familiar sound, I expect him to follow a similar symphonious approach with his new forthcoming EP.
If you haven’t managed to listen to Jordy’s recent song 'Blue Eyes' you must. This track has been recognised worldwide, been remixed by Tijuana Cartel and has even been used by the surf brand O’Neill for promotional use. What makes this track stand out of the crowd is it’s presence of melancholy through the lyrics and instrumentation accompanied by the vibrant video clip which will leave you wanting more. Jordy’s hauntingly beautiful voice partnered with an acoustic guitar and a euphonious backbeat form a very rich and full sound. 'Long Road Home' and 'You Belong' are two already released singles that will be apart of the forthcoming EP.
