…An emotional journey…

Derek Jordan is a music artist from Los Angeles. He sings and plays lead guitars for his own music projects which can be described as an emotional journey. The album “Humanist” proves it. Derek music is a real encouragement for those “wanna be” musicians who think major recording productions are the deals. Not true at all. Derek recordings transport you to the enjoyment of making music the old way –the kind of excitement that is very much missed in these modern days’ recordings-, a garage rehearsal room, a place where musicians should enjoy their most precious treasure: art creation. Derek Jordan is truly himself, no secrets and no mysteries. “Humanist” is the purest album you can listen to. It provides a wild variety of sounds and melodies in a true attempt of Derek to explore different music styles. Although Derek is a huge fan of Jared Leto’s band “30 Seconds To Mars” and admits to be highly influenced by Leto’s music… the album “Humanist” shows artist Derek doing his best to be himself with the inspiration his own existence has provided. 

Derek Jordan’s lyrics talk about the anger, desperation and emptiness human kind is into. It’s a “wake-up” call to enjoy life. And, in this regard Derek describes his music as “Psych Alternative Rock”. He is trying to make people think and at the same time he is giving the listeners the opportunity to analyze themselves as in a session with a psychologist. Derek is fascinated with the way society moves and the psychology behind it. He has read a book that changed his life and encourages everyone to read it: “The Four Agreements” By Don Miguel Ruiz. According to Derek’s own experience, this book will open your mind!

Derek latest work was released on April 12, 2011 and is entitled “Predators”, a musical novel of five chapters written by Mimi Black. Each chapter has a song written by Derek Jordan.

Logline for Predators: Five friends look to escape the daily grind by taking a trip to Paris, only to find themselves being hunted by vampires.
