    Some years from now, the name Jordan Feliz might be the obvious answer to a trivia question that goes something like this:

    What artist launched his career as a hard-touring heavy metal singer, then switched gears to become a church worship leader, before finally signing a Nashville record deal and making his mark as a songwriter and soulful R&B-groove-pop artist?

    Well, if the question comes up some day, you'll already know the answer: Jordan Feliz.

    Fronting the West Coast buzz band A Current Affair gave Jordan's powerful vocals some major exposure right out of high school. The band performed on the Warped Tour and other high profile gigs before dissolving. But heavy metal was never Jordan's passion; it was just a fun experience with his friends to grow musically. As a child, Jordan grew up with R&B artists like Sam Cooke and Earth Wind & Fire providing the soundtrack to his frequent road trips to a ski resort with his family. Artists from what his father called "the good music era." Those were the sounds and stylings that stuck in Jordan's musical memory and by the time he was old enough to realize that his own singing voice was a gift, it was those early groove-funk-soul singers that had shaped his personal aesthetic. If he was going to make records, those were the kind of influences he wanted to draw from.

    After his move from California to Nashville, Jordan was invited to participate in an unsigned artists retreat hosted by Centricity Music. It was the combination of Jordan's nuanced vocal abilities, the freshness of his retro-influenced melodies and songwriting, and his warm, enthusiastic personality that spurred label execs to take a closer look and ultimately sign him.

    Jordan Feliz's debut project, Beloved, brings the rich influence of 70's sensibilities into a modern pop context. Intentionally constructing uncluttered tracks free of production tricks and excessive instrumentation, Jordan instead focused on arrangements that were designed to give the vocals center stage. The songs on the Beloved 10 song album are soul-influenced pop numbers, and the instruments present are articulate in their voicings and melodies, saying only as much as they need to.

    "I was the kid growing up with the headphones on listening to every lick and reading the lyrics," Jordan says. "My dad had a collection of cassettes. My mom had some vinyl. I discovered artists like the Commodores, Bill Withers, and Nat King Cole through them. When I was in the studio making Beloved, I told my producers I didn't want thirty guitars stacked on one track. I didn't want five different guitar tones. I want to put one guitar sound on a song and find a way to make that one lick sound massive, the way those 70's artists were able to do. If you stack too many sounds on one track you can lose the song in all that clutter. Building 'clean' tracks on Beloved was very intentional."

    Tag-team produced by Colby Wedgeworth (Lincoln Brewster, The Main, Lydia) and Josh Silverberg (Newsboys, Jon Foreman, Plumb), Beloved has plenty of radio-friendly pop melodies that manages to hit those marks without compromising Jordan's unique musical personality. The best example of his singular vision is the record's powerhouse first single, "The River." While it sounds like a pulse-quickening mega-hit from the first listen--instantly singable and repeatedly listenable-- the song actually rides on a deep current of soul-driven funk influence that serves to set it apart from other contemporary radio fare.

    "I'm a big melody guy," Jordan admits, "and musically 'The River' is my own personal happy place. It's a great driving groove that just feels good to sing. The song itself is an invitation to anyone who hears it--whether they're stuck in pride and legalism or wallowing down in the mess they've made of their lives--it's an invitation to take whatever we have and to run to Jesus. It's an invitation to go down in amazing grace and to rise up being made new."

    The album's title track, while every bit as soulful and catchy as the first single, was penned from a more personal and autobiographical posture. Jordan's wife was about to give birth to their first child, and Jordan began to consider what he, as a new father, would most want to communicate to the daughter he was about to meet.

    "I wrote 'Beloved' before she was born," he says, "and I wrote it with two guys who both had little girls. The thing I really wanted my daughter to grow up knowing was that no matter what the world tells her, she's beloved. She's loved beyond compare. Regardless of what any of the people around her think, she doesn't have to be concerned with measuring up because I'm gonna love her unconditionally as long as she lives. She's beloved and that's a love she was born into without having to earn it. I wrote it for her, but of course the parallel of God's unconditional love for His children is obvious. Anything I feel for my daughter is just a small echo of what God feels for her and for all of us."

    With its slow build and towering vocal hooks, "Beloved" will doubtless provide one of the cornerstones of Jordan's energetic live shows, along with "The River," a festive cut that reveals some of the artist's roots as a worship leader, and the laid back grooving track, "Simple."

    "If my record has a theme, it's probably summed up in the 'Simple lyric,'" Jordan explains. "I really just wanted this to be a project that people would smile when they listened to it. I wanted to write songs that would make people feel loved. I want them to feel good. Whatever the complications of life that we might be going through at any given moment, our relationships with Jesus don't have to be difficult. We have a tendency to make it so much harder on ourselves than it really is. We think God can't love us because we're struggling with something or we messed up somewhere. But it's not that complicated. God loves us. Our ransom has been paid. The emotional baggage we carry around doesn't change the truth. We belong to God and He loves us. It really is that simple. We just have to be constantly reminded of that. The work has already been done on the cross. We just have to remind ourselves and each other to believe it."

    Having just navigated a long and rocky transition after leaving the security of his local music connections, a church staff position, and moving from California to Tennessee, Jordan Feliz and his wife experienced firsthand what it means to learn to rest in the simplicity of faith in a Father who daily provides for the needs of His children. In fact, they set out from California without even enough money to make it past Phoenix. But along each leg of the journey some music gig opened up that provided enough funds to drive the next leg. By the time they reached their new home, Jordan had actually made several hundred dollars from the move.

    "We believed God had made it clear from the beginning we should move to Nashville," Jordan says, "but that didn't mean it was easy. After we got here I couldn't find a job. My wife and I were sharing one car. I was posting handyman ads on Craigslist and working as a valet downtown. I could hardly get any people to write songs with me. Then we found out we were pregnant and there was so much that seemed up in the air and kind of scary. In the last few months though, it's just been like this whirlwind of good things falling into place. I signed the record deal with Centricity Music in February of this year and I finished the Beloved record July 5th. Then, I actually won a brand new car, completely out of the blue, right before my daughter was born July 20th. My first single went to radio July 31st. After so much difficulty and uncertainty, God answered our prayers. He is there for all of us and all we have to do is remain faithful."
