Stockton, CA born rising star, songwriter, and producer Jordan D. Mitchell has released his first official album, "I'll Apologize Later".
The new project which was written, produced, mixed, and mastered by Jordan himself is an excellent work by the Santa Barbara raised upcoming star. The album was inspired by Jordan's undergrad college experience. He discusses the fun and exciting moments while in college but also reveals the dark and underlying problems behind the curtain that he didn’t express to the people closest and dearest to him. He utilizes hard-hitting lyrics in songs like “Basura” while showing another side of himself through unfolding his vulnerability in “Situationship.”
Jordan D. Mitchell is a musical mastermind of his generation that is setting the bar high for independent rappers in the industry. Writing, playing, producing, mastering, mixing, distributing, and performing are of the many hats JDM wears as an artist as he continues to prove himself as a compelling force in the musical world. Drawing inspiration from his own musical experiences, he uses his various cultural influences, symphonic soundtracks, and reliefs of escapism therefore not bounding him to any particular genre and establishing himself as a man of many sounds.
Prior to the release of his latest official album I’ll Apologize Later, JDM has three astounding projects in his library. Although JDM uses music to express his thoughts while entertaining others, he hopes to create music for black and brown folks in particular. “My music is for the hood kids struggling in college, for the people locked up, my music is transcultural and changes along with the climate I am living, it’s extremely self-reflective and progressive.”
In addition to creating music, JDM obtains a Bachelor of Arts in Music Composition from UC Santa Barbara and is continuing his education at USC’s Music Teaching and Learning Masters Program. JDM works alongside legendary musician Eric Parker who has produced for notable artists such as Timbaland, Missy Elliot, Kanye West, and Lauryn Hill, to name a few. JDM also teaches music to local high school students in the Los Angeles area while spending his weekends performing with his mariachi band.
