Every artist has their own personal style that bleeds over into every aspect of their music--the sound, the melodies, the voice, the cover art, and yes... even the music videos.
In an age where videos are a dime a dozen, it's one of the hardest tasks for an artist to craft videos that grab the listeners attention beyond just the song and invite them into a deeper storyline.
For Centricity Music artist Jordan Feliz however, videos are a realm in which he excels. Now walking into his sophomore project Future, Jordan already has released quite a few noteworthy music/lyric videos.
But what exactly makes up a Jordan Feliz video? In honor of his new release and the accompanying videos, we're taking a look at some of the key elements that you can expect from the pop artist's visual treatments. Here's the anatomy of a Jordan Feliz video:
1. The Hat
Need I say more? If you've followed Jordan for any length of time, chances are you've noticed that the hat tends to be a signature for him--and of course, it follows him over to the videos. No matter the setting, you can find Feliz rocking the hat (and we wouldn't have it any other way)!
2. The Moves
As much as Jordan's videos can make you ponder the deep things of life, they can also just be really fun dance jams. You'll find yourself automatically grooving along with these pop melodies, but you're not alone--even Jordan's rocking out in the video for "Never Too Far Gone."
3. The Storytelling
What's a good music video without a moving storyline? While all of Jordan's videos capture some sense of emotion, none have been quite as good at hitting listeners in the feels as his brand-new video for "Count That High." Taking a personal look into Jordan's life by featuring his friends and family (can we just talk about how adorable his daughter Jolie is?!), the video is a precious reminder of what's important in life. Make sure you watch all the way to the end for a super sweet conclusion!
4. The Live Energy
If you've ever seen Jordan live, you know that he's remarkably good at translating every bit of the energy and passion you hear in the recordings into a killer live show. The good news is that if you haven't gotten to see Jordan live yet, you can still catch some of that live-setting energy in his music videos! In just about all his videos show a glimpse of his live show, with band performances.
5. The Scenery
Something that has always stood out to me about Jordan's videos is the attention to finding the perfect background/scenery for the shoot. Whether it's a beautiful park or a busy city, Jordan's videos are always filmed in an area that's going to give viewers some new visual perspective to enjoy.
6. The Cameos
Throughout his videos, if you pay attention, you'll see some other Christian artists making special appearances. Whether it's Hawk Nelson drummer David Nicaris performing on "The River" (among other videos), David Dunn joining him for a cover of One Direction's "Drag Me Down," or Matty Mullins appearing on the new "Count That High" video, Jordan has shown he likes to do his videos with friends.
