A Different Side

Created by the historic Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, 1 Mic 1 Take is a YouTube series that gives artists the opportunity to utilize the studio to perform an acoustic take on some of their songs. No editing, no post production--just raw talent. Early this year, metal-turned-soulful-pop artist Jordan Feliz was invited to the studio for a session of 1 Mic 1 Take, and he took to the set like a fish to water. Jordan's 1 Mic 1 Take EP is a collection of the songs he performed there.
This EP contains stripped down versions of four of Feliz's songs from his 2016 release The River, including the acclaimed title track. A fifth song, "Call On Me," is a cover of the debut single from Australian singer/songwriter Starley. The acoustic tone combined with Jordan's soulful vocals gives the pop song an extra folk flavor. Other tracks include "Never Too Far Gone," "Beloved" and "Satisfied." "Satisfied" is perhaps the most unaltered track on the EP, close to the original version in its mellow, worshipful setting.
Jordan's voice has a naturally soothing quality and his songs are innately beautiful, lending themselves well to an unplugged, acoustic setting. 1 Mic 1 Take may not offer anything new from Feliz, but it does give us a slightly different side of his skillful vocals.
The Bottom Line: If you can't get enough of Jordan Feliz's music, this EP is the perfect bite-size morsel to satiate your hunger until the next full length album.
