Jordyn Stoddard's debut album, Southern Tide, will be released on March 9th. The album was produced by Grammy Award winner David Hall and mastered by Tom Coyne, who recently won seven Grammys for his work on both Taylor Swift's and Sam Smith's albums. Additionally, the album features current ACM Guitarist of the Year Rob McNelley on lead guitar. Recorded at Blackbird Studios, Southern Tide contains eleven tracks including her current single "Like Me 'Til You Love Me" and a cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams."
Stoddard shows versatility on sorrowful ballads ("The Clown") and lighter, breezy summer fare ("Southern Tide"). Her etheral voice on "Burn Out Bright," a song about remembering an evening that was "perfect for a moment", is reminiscent of Taylor Swift while "No One Wins" demonstrates a darker feel both melodically and in her delivery. Personal favorite "Disasterpiece," about finally moving on after the end of a relationship, packs the proverbial emotional punch. Whether it has only been a few years ago, or many, "Sixteen" will make you feel nostalgic for that age when love was new and worries were few and far between. "Heart First" about diving "down to the bottom of your, your love," "Politician," a clever song that compares a (not so honest) guy to an elected official and "Talk Like That" round out the album.
Stoddard's debut showcases a young woman with a bright future and is one that should appeal to all generations of music lovers.
