Erica Jordan is a singer/songwriter from Southern California that has just begun her road to musical stardom. With a sound that touches on everything from Lil’ Kim to vintage Ashanti, she seems destined to find a home on your playlists in the not-so-distant future.

With her self-titled debut album, Erica Jordan introduces herself as a lyricist on the opening track, “Introducing First.” At first listen, fans get the idea that she is a rapper through and through, but as the album continues, more layers of her music are revealed. She cites a range of influencers to her sound, including: Anita Baker, Cake, Shania Twain and more. Eclectic, sure, but her music shows traces of them all.

Slower tracks like “Organic” evoke memories of Murder, Inc.-era Ashanti, with her vocals falling perfectly atop a hip-hop beat. Not a one trick pony, Jordan’s music comes across as nothing short of a pleasant surprise as she impresses time and time again. The album grows more comfortable as it continues, proving to be a complete top-to-bottom listen; uncommon for such a young artist.
