LISTEN: Jordan Mackampa - 'What Am I'

Following from my Roman Lewis post last week, here's another new track from an artist I had the pleasure of seeing at this year's Bushstock Festival. Jordan Mackampa played at the venue I was volunteering at and he and his band/crew were some of the friendliest people I met all day! He also happens to have a beautifully soulful vocal and some lovely songs - new tune What Am I following in the footsteps of Under, released back in May.

Talking about the track, Jordan explains that "'What Am I' is a modern take on Marvin Gaye's classic 'What's Going On', highlighting the state of the world right now, from multiple wars in different territories; how the earth is dying, to the border control problem and how it's been deal with. It's a lot of hopes and prays, changing of display pictures to blue, but all trickling down to a stop soon after, as it is no longer in the forefront of the media. I wrote this song in the mindset of how I need to do more but don't know how because I am only one man, trying his best to make change within the means available."

Jordan is about to head out on a US tour with Amber Run across October and November, before a UK/Europe headline tour in November and December, with a show at London's Village Underground on 25th November. Full dates and tickets here.
