     If you haven't heard of Jordan Davis yet, be prepared to add him to your summer playlist. Davis is the newest artist on Universal Music Group Nashville’s roster and just released his debut single “Singles You Up” on May 25th.

 

     Growing up in Shreveport, Louisiana music was all around Davis at an early age. His Uncle, Stan Paul Davis, wrote two Top 5 titles for Tracy Lawrence in the 1990s – “Today’s Lonely Fool” and “Better Man, Better Off”. Jordan's older brother Jacob is also an up and coming country artist. Davis, learned to play guitar as an early teenager before leaving home and attending LSU where he graduated with a degree in resource conservation.

     Jordan's passion for music finally compelled him to move to Nashville. In 2015, Davis signed a publishing deal followed by a record deal in 2016 with UMG Nashville. Davis has been touring the past year with a list of amazing artists Kane Brown, Chase Rice and The Cadillac Three to name a few.

     Mixing his natural Louisiana soul sound with his country roots you get this amazing pop/rock/country infused sound. His latest single, “Singles You Up,” defines his sound with big drums, loud guitars and witty lyrics (If he ever singles you up, if he's ever stupid enough I'ma be the first one calling you baby) that are reminiscent of Sam Hunt.

     “Singles You Up” follows a man hoping to catch the eye of a girl stuck in a relationship with a guy undeserving of her affection. The single is bound to reach the top spot this summer and put Jordan on everyone's radar.
