Jordan Astra is an R&B, Hip-Hop and Pop musician, who is also a writer, producer and engineer. His new single Reasons features Melbourne based rapper Jalmar who incorporates his Chilean heritage with spicy Spanish flows. The two collaborators were introduced by Alexandré, host of Melbourne’s ‘Let’s Vibe’ events who knew Jordan and Jalmar had to work with each other.
Jordan says about his new single today, “Reasons is a song that reflects on the infatuation we feel for someone new, the rush we get when we think about someone who’s caught our attention. Like most of the songs I write, the hook came to me first and then I began writing my verse and worked collectively on Jalmar’s part to really keep the song cohesive.”
Reasons is complemented by a self-directed video alongside Jordan’s long time friend Mark Kobakian showcasing Jordan’s creativity and versatility as an artist with a special cameo from his wife! The video illustrates this young artist’s playful and cheeky personality. Citing artists such as The Neptunes, Free Nationals, and Jamiroquai as inspirations, it’s no surprise that Jordan’s dynamic new single Reasons features earworm hooks and classic word play.
Raised in Canada to an Indonesian father and German mother; Melbourne based Jordan Astra introduced us to his distinctive sound in early 2016 when he released his debut EP. Since then, he has achieved over 450,000 streams on Spotify and been building up his fanbase performing in LA and his new hometown Melbourne, including supports for American hip-hop musician Leikeli47.
Jordan was scheduled to do a twenty-city tour in the US which has since been put on hold due to Covid19, so he is looking forward to performing there in 2021.
Reasons is out now through Ditto Music.
