The River by Jordan Feliz on Apple Music

EDITORS’ NOTES

The heavy metal rocker-turned-worship leader finds his niche in uplifting pop. Jordan Feliz began his career in 2006 as a member of the rock band A Current Affair, but eventually traded the mosh pit for a position at a church in his central California hometown. In 2015, he moved to Nashville to pursue a solo career making inspirational pop music with a soulful spin and released his debut album, Beloved, which included a cover of Ed Sheeran’s “Photograph” and Feliz’ first single “The River.” The success of “The River” inspired the title for his follow-up LP, where he returns with bigger production, catchy melodies and powerful pop-hooks that feel primed for radio.

About Jordan Feliz

Jordan Feliz is a Billboard-charting contemporary Christian pop singer and songwriter. His sound walks the line between classic rock, slick retro-'70s R&B, and modern pop. Feliz grew up in Clovis, California and began his formal musical career with faith-based hard rock/screamo band A Current Affair in 2006. The band's debut EP, Life in an Hourglass, offered a seamless screamo sound. It was followed by the Josh Auer-produced The Real Devastation EP in 2009.

Feliz left the group and relocated to Nashville in 2012. After a series of part-time jobs working as, among other things, a handyman to a valet, he became a church worship leader. In 2014, he was invited to participate in an unsigned artists retreat hosted by Centricity Music, and was promptly signed by the label. He began recording his debut album in February with producers Colby Wedgeworth (Lincoln Brewster, the Main, Lydia) and Josh Silverberg (Newsboys, Plumb). They finished in July. His first single, "The River," was issued the same month, and he also became a father that September.

"The River" claimed the top spot on the Christian AC Songs chart and remained there for ten weeks. His Beloved EP was released in October and entered the Heatseekers chart at number 12, eventually earning the top spot and remaining there for eight weeks. The follow-up single, "Never Too Far Gone," was released in March, landing inside the Top 20. His debut full-length, The River, was issued in April 2016 along with third single "Best of Me." The album entered the Christian Albums chart at number four and garnered a Dove nomination for Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year. In 2017 he returned with the EP 1 Mic 1 Take, a live acoustic session recorded at Capitol Studios in Hollywood. ~ Thom Jurek
