NEWS: Jordan Klassen Announces The February 7th Release Of Kindness EP

Vancouver based songwriter to follow up 2010’s St. Brigid with a five song EP in advance of a full length album later in 2012. 

Jordan Klassen makes music built out of pure imagination. A truly alluring voice, laid upon beds of shimmering strings, caressed guitar, and coaxing percussion. His latest work takes such a foundation, and continues to build.

With four new songs on the physical release and a Teen Daze remix of the previously released Ask Me Not, Astronaut included on the digital version, Kindness, introduces rich and full-bodied singing alongside Jordan’s now ubiquitous falsetto. The first single from the EP, Go To Me provides a glimpse as to what his upcoming LP might sound like. The song has been critically celebrated, with ChippedHip.com calling it a “cinematic pop rocker” and Holeytonal dubbing it a “gracefully dramatic little masterpiece.”

Gracefully dramatic enough to be featured in ‘Catch .44’, an upcoming film starring Bruce Willis & Forrest Whitaker, joining other Klassen creations which have found their ways onto television series' including USA Network’s ‘Royal Pains,’ and the upcoming iTunes version of late 90’s TV show ‘Felicity’.

It has been over a year since his 2010 release, the subdued St. Brigid EP. The spring centered album was the second in Klassen’s chronicling of the seasons, the first being Tempest & Winter, an album which put him on the map with appearances at Calgary Folk Music Festival and Rifflandia, along with a live performance on CBC Radio 1 and extensive airplay on CBC Radio 2.

After 4 years spent in Calgary where he established himself as an emerging artist, Klassen returned to British Columbia in 2010, settling into his hometown of Vancouver. The return to the west coast allowed for the fruitful collaboration with Jonathan Anderson (Aidan Knight, In Medias Res) at Buena Vista Audio where Jordan Klassen’s new material has taken shape.

While we must wait a little while longer to hear a full-length release, Kindness will make its way into the ears of listeners this coming February of 2012.
