Bringing his unique style of Australian Bush Ballads, Americana and Blues, is Brisbane based singer-songwriter Jordan Merrick.
Jordan’s interest in music started from the young age of 12 where he found an old acoustic guitar of his sisters. He attempted to play songs he enjoyed which founded a passion for it.
In 2015 the young singer-songwriter began to develop his live show where he lived in the Gold Coast, Queensland.
Once Merrick moved to Brisbane in 2016 his thirst for a bigger sound and company on the stage was quenched when he formed his band, Fugitive & The Vagabond. In mid 2016 Fugitive & The Vagabond released their debut album, ‘Novella’ that featured the light-humoured and upbeat single ‘My Girlfriend’ - ultimately showing how Jordan Merrick has a wide range of songwriting capabilities.
His talent was recognised in 2016 at the Gold Coast Music Festival when he was nominated for young ‘Songwriter of the Year’ and the song ‘The Wild’ also nominated for ‘Song of the Year’.
While writing and performing for Fugitive & The Vagabond will continue, 2017 has been a huge year for Merrick’s solo debut.
This humble, musical-poet released his debut single ‘Untitled #1’ in February which alone has had 100k+ plays on Spotify, had national radio play on Triple J & Double J and was later followed up by the single ‘You Gotta Go’ that reached #2 in the AMRAP Regional charts in May. Merrick then took his debut EP ‘In Colour’ (released May 5) on tour along the East Coast of Australia.
The release of ‘Travellin’ in August is just another example of Merrick’s hard-working traits and passion for a life in the music industry. Merrick promises that there is plenty more up his sleeve, with dates currently being secured for another East-coast tour in November.
