I am a musician/creator/cuddler.
Hi guys, Im Jordan aka Son of Stan. I’m a creator. Mostly of music. I play all sorts of instruments with all sorts of people. Additionally, I produce music and DJ around the globe. Preferably at malls, when possible.
Here’s a little bit about what I am doing now and my new album.
Produced by Adam Lasus (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Yo La Tengo) Divorce Pop is the full-length debut of Son of Stan, the unique solo vehicle of songwriter Jordan Richardson (former drummer for Ben Harper and Ringo Starr). Divorce Pop , written and performed entirely by Richardson, wraps wry lyricism in psychedelic hooks and the airtight grooves of vintage synth-rock, creating a sound that’s simultaneously nostalgic and futuristic. It’s the sound of a dance party in a dying mall, or a discotheque of 2020, if it had been dreamt up in 1990. The album’s first single ‘Corsica’ premiered in September on MTVu. Due for release on October 15, 2013 (on Wizardvizion), Divorce Pop’s sound draws from the darker side of ‘80s pop…think Joe Jackson, Phil Collins…as well as nodding to the stonier, soulful, awkward pop swagger of modern artists…a la Twin Shadow, Blood Orange, and Toro Y Moi…according to Emmy-nominated filmmaker Daniel Stessen, Divorce Pop is “like art-school Huey Lewis”.
I started this website because I’m lucky. I’m lucky because through my job, I’m enabled to do the coolest shit, see the coolest places and get to know the coolest people. I’m obsessed with the creative process and I like to use my brain for things like thinking. I’m using this forum to showcase all of my wild experiences, post my music and thoughts, and share the super cool ideas that come from the people and the world around me.
This may also turn into an amateur porn site at some point, but that won’t be my fault.
