"SLAS Intimate Acoustics concert offering an outstanding musical line-up"

Jordan Hawn, who is a native son of South Dundas, played in a metal/hardcore band for eight years before the challenges and appeal of acoustic/fingerstyle guitar began to capture his interest.

With fellow artist Andrew Mulder, whose background is hip-hop/funk/rock, Jordan has been creating some very unique, and exciting instrumental music for audiences. This is reflected most particularly through their new project, Elmsley.

“Elmsley is an EP that is inspired by where we both came from and where we are now,” Jordan explained. “We wanted something that was catchy, technical, and songs that were as complete as possible from front to back.” Jordan’s sister Shannon, who is also filming their music video, “Homebound”, due for spring release, handles creative work for the duo.

Elmsley is a project Jordan and Andrew have been working on for some time. Their SLAS performance should spark a lot of attention from the audience.

“We typically come up with a catchy riff and build off it, adding parts as we go. As we are instrumental, we try our best to keep the songs interesting and fairly fast paced,” Jordan said. He is hoping to add more instrumental layers to his music, as their unique sound and style develop, perhaps even incorporating vocals into the mixture down the road. - The Morrisburg Leader

Elmsley is an instrumental acoustic duo out of the Ottawa Valley. This raw-sounding original project is made up of Jordan Hawn & Andrew Mulder, two musicians who have been playing in local bands for the past 12+ years. From Jordan who’s played many metal and hardcore shows in his college years to Andrew playing in an indie band that's still rocking Irene’s on a Saturday night - they’ve shared the stage with some great artists all across Ontario & Quebec.

Their first release was a self-titled EP in the summer of 2018. Since then, they’ve been sharing their recently finished material in pubs, breweries, college campuses and farmers markets across the valley.  With a soon-to-be released music video, shot in Newboro, ON, they are excited about their new material and play as much as possible!
