In a recent episode by The Black Creators Club, hosts Akilah Ffriend and Eboné Chatman interviewed Jasmine Jordan who is an emerging independent recording artist. Her style of music brings you back to the 90s with a twist a mix between Tamia and a young Mariah Carey.
Jasmine is dropping her 3rd EP called Innermission which will be available in December, but she is giving us all a little sneak peak with her single called “Release” available now, which can be found on Spotify and Apple Music.
Singing has always come naturally to Jasmine as she has had a love for the arts since she was little. Her mom would sacrifice her weekends to be able to drive Jasmine to commercial modeling gigs, church choir and school.
Jasmine comes from a background of very supportive parents, which came in handy when she got offered a role in her high school play that changed the trajectory of her career. Jasmine played Fatine in Les Miserables where she had to act and sing, which at the time seemed to be a major challenge.
“It really changed my life, it challenged me, it kinda broke me down and gave me the opportunity to rise up… said Jasmine, ... I was so young and insecure and thinking this isn’t my normal boat , but again it challenged me in all the right ways, and when I actually performed...it was one of those moments in my life where the energy , the electricity, feeling so at home with myself”.
Jasmine is true to herself, deeply rooted in her faith and determined in her craft, as she takes life experiences and puts them to music, giving her listeners a little piece of herself in every song.
This episode of the Black Creators Club gives us the rundown on the importance of not conforming to industry standards but, instead, staying true to your vision.
