"Review of "real quiet""

Considering singer-songwriter Jordan Caress moved to
Nashville from Boston last year and producer Brian Siskind
(Fognode) just left town for NYC, Nashville should be
thankful the two had the chance to cross paths and record this
beautifully hazy batch of spaced-out indie folk. Most of Real
Quiet lives up to its name, as Caress' fragile pipes,
reminiscent of Aimee Mann, are softly surrounded by robust
synth drones, folky strums and subtle percussion, but
country-tinged rocker "Evidence" is intriguing in its
straight-shooting strength. Fans of Jennifer Niceley and
Cortney Tidwell should definitely check this one out. And
cross your fingers that Caress doesn't plan any future moves
anytime soon.

"review of"

Grade: A+

If you met Jordan Caress on the street you would never imagine that the seemingly shy, unassuming, plainly dressed Caress would hold inside her such power, depth and resonance radiating from her lungs. A recent Nashville transplant, Jordan Caress is a breath of fresh air in a musical climate that seems intent on cookie-cutter dullness and unabashed replication of “the next big thing”. With “Real Quiet”, Jordan Caress delivers a collection of songs that evoke the power and passion of Chrissy Hynde and the upbeat melancholy of Gillian Welch. Her tight, abundant vocals go from Emmylou Harris subtlety to Joan Jett ferocity in the beat of a heart seemingly without the slightest effort. Sparse arrangements perfectly frame Caress’ deli-cate vocalizations making “Real Quiet” a self-fulfilling prophesy that fits like a glove. If this is the tip of the iceberg, I can’t wait to get in under the water.

Scotch Rocks, self titled, LP 2006
real quiet, EP 2008



Jordan Caress manages to move seamlessly between ambient folk, rollicking country, and indie rock over the course of a performance . Her debut EP, "real quiet", showcases this remarkable versatility while simultaneously creating a lush, ambient soundscape that has become her signature sound.

Caress grew up on music. Her mother and father were both touring musicians, and starting at age 16 she was the longtime bassist for a family band consisting of herself and her three brothers. Her brother Alex is responsible for the memorable synth hooks of "real quiet."

As the frontwoman for Boston based indie-rockers Scotch Rocks, she developed a diverse catalog of rock, pop, and alt-country tunes and her band released a critically acclaimed record before splitting in 2006.

Now a resident of Nashville, TN, Caress enjoys the company of a strong musical community committed to diversity. Earning critical comparisons to Emmylou Harris, Aimee Mann, and Chrissy Hynde, her debut record and live performances have made her an artist to watch carefully as she plans her next move.
