Since relocating to Columbia, SC from her hometown of Charleston earlier this year, Jordan Igoe’s more than picked up where she left off. With her last full length album coming out in 2014, Igoe’s spent the last six years writing plenty of songs, but not releasing them until now.
October 25 marked the release of her new album Sober and Sorry, featuring both newer and older songs she’s written over since the release of her full length album. The EP featuring 5 songs is quintessential Igoe from the opening piano and her uniquely southern voice quickly cutting through landing somewhere between pop, Americana and country.
Igoe further establishes herself with tracks that paint vivid pictures lyrically, matched on each track musically. “Widow” has that spooky feel, while “Walking Contradiction” shows a starker place, focused more on Igoe and her piano throughout the song building and breaking down.
With plenty of more songs in the tank, Igoe is already at work on new music in her new town of Columbia, at Archer Avenue Studio.
