11 Questions to a Nashville Musician: Spencer Jordan

Spencer JordanSince making his way to Music City, Spencer Jordan has made a deposit of a handful of cleverly catchy Pop singles for our ears. His latest is “16 and in love” that you can listen to right here and now. Behind its tender Pop tones and bouncy vocals, it’s a serious revealing personal tale with Spencer looking back on missing out while being in the closet during his teenage years. Says Spencer: “16 and in love” is a love letter to high school and to anyone who has ever felt this way.”

Looks like Spencer is having a blast at his TikTok page which seems like the best place to keep an eye on his activities. BTW – He released his debut EP “Season 1” in the fall of 2020 and is currently a published writer with 300 Entertainment. Thanks, Spencer, for visiting 11 Questions!

Where are you from originally, when did you move to Nashville and why?

I’m from Jupiter, FL and moved here on June 26, 2017, after graduating from the University of Florida, because my dad told me I would be a better songwriter than a lawyer!

What are the first and the last records you bought, and where did you buy them? Were they CD, vinyl or digital?

The first record I ever bought was NSYNC’s No Strings Attached CD, and If I’m being honest, I haven’t bought a physical copy of music in years. But the last album I downloaded on Spotify was Chelsea Cutler’s When I Close My Eyes.

First and last live concerts that you’ve seen?

First concert was Rascal Flatts (with Taylor Swift OPENING?!) and most recent was 5 Seconds of Summer at Ascend Amphitheater.

Whose star should be added to the Music City Walk of Fame?

I know he’s more LA, but I don’t think there is a musician who is as referenced and imitated in Nashville than John Mayer.

Where do you go in Nashville for coffee and pizza?

Steadfast Coffee and Five Points Pizza in East Nashville

What’s your favorite record to ever come out of Nashville?

“Bleach (On the Rocks)” by John Harvie. *winks at camera*

Where’s the best place to eat late night after a show?

Velvet Taco.

The Bluebird calls and asks you to host an “In the Round.” Pick three local songwriters to join you.

Knox Morris, Drea Gordan, and Ian McConnel.

What are your favorite music venues to play in town?

I’ve really enjoyed playing at the Analog Hotel for Breaking Sound Nashville shows. I’d love to get a larger sample size soon though!

Name a musician who you’d like to see move here.

Jeremy Zucker.

Finally, what’s in your musical future?

More releases, if I can actually get these songs across the finish line without a full-on anxiety attack!
