"Who Is Jordy Searcy, contestant in NBC's The Voice?"

NBC's "The Voice" is in full swing, and this season is full of Alabama's influence. Four contestants with Alabama connections have made it through the blind audition portion, where they sang for judges Gwen Stefani, Adam Levine, Pharrell and Blake Shelton. With the teams now set, the contestants will move into battle rounds this week where they will face off against their team members in front of a live audience. Here is what you need to know about one of Alabama's own ahead on Monday night's battle:

Name: Jordy Searcy

Alabama connection: Fairhope resident

Song choice: Bon Iver's "Skinny Love"

Team: Pharrell

Searcy also got the attention of Stefani and Shelton, but said that he always planned on choosing Pharrell's team if given the chance. "I feel like he's like me in a way that he's not really afraid to do something that's different," he said.

About: Searcy is currently a student at the University of North Alabama majoring in entertainment business. He's no stranger to the music industry outside of school. He released his debut album in 2013. He is currently on haitus from recording his follow-up. He counts his family, former music instructors and John Mayer and The Beatles as some of his biggest musical influences. - www.AL.com


"Artist Profile-Jordy Searcy"

Jordy Searcy is a singer-songwriter artist from Fairhope, Alabama. He plays organic tunes about surfing, girls and everything in between.

In terms of genre, Searcy’s music seems most appropriately categorized as some sort of acoustic rock. His songs exhibit a smoothness that is comparable to John Mayer’s music, while maintaing the same amiable demeanor that is found in most of Jack Johnson’s work. It makes for a captivating style, to say the least. Most of his songs are acoustic lead, but they are all built up by a full band.

My personal favorite song of his is “All”, a track off his recently released self title. The song gives a perfect example of Jordy’s melodic awareness, and showcases his poetic yet relatable songwriting style.

At only 19 years old, Searcy has a surprisingly cultured voice. There is a decisiveness in his tone that is quite rare for such a young artist. He only recently released his debut self title, but there is already a sort of completeness in it that many artists fail to ever reach. Needless to say, you’ll definitely want to keep your eye on this guy.

Bio

Jordy Searcy is one of the best new voices you'll hear, but beyond that, he knows how to write and perform in a way that really showcases his pipes. With a sound landing somewhere between Ed Sheeran and James Taylor, he was able to capture the hearts of America on Season 7 of NBC's The Voice. All of the coaches had something good to say about him when he climbed the ranks of the television singing competition in 2014, and he used the momentum from the show to launch an extensive tour of the Southeast. 

The tour went a little differently than most first tours do, and that’s because it was filled with established fans that were bursting at the seams to hear more new music from Jordy. But because he only wears shoes when he skateboards, and his band set up is constantly evolving, first timers have plenty to get excited about as well.

Jordy eventually landed in Nashville, TN, and that’s where you’ll find him absorbing the world around him and turning it into things like Seasons, his debut EP. Seasons made it to #5 on Apple Music and #7 on iTunes singer/songwriter charts, and his fans aren’t subtle about wanting more. But quality wins over quantity for Jordy, so he’ll continue to perform his new music night after night, for 15 people or 15 million, until he finds the songs that really stick.
