Jordan Caress


Caress creates a unique mixture of ambient folk, traditional country, and indie-rock. Her music contains honest, simple, and moving reflections on human interaction giving her listeners an emotionally charged, heart rendering experience.


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.
