Hi! Everyone, 
This weeks FEATURED ARTIST OF THE WEEK is the  multi-talented JORDAN PIER from the instrumental band LEAVING RICHMOND

1. My name is Jordan Pier.  I live in Los Angeles and I helm the instrumental music project, leaving richmond.

2.I’ve had a deep love for music for as long as I can remember.  Particularly soundtracks and scores. Anything that let me come up with my own mental imagery while listening.  My first real foray into playing music was in my elementary school band with the alto sax.  There was a public access jazz station in NY I that I used to love so that’s probably why I chose that instrument.

3. I am proficient in guitar and I can handle myself on keyboards.  I bet I could play a few tunes if I picked up a sax again too.  

4. There’s an electronic artist by the name Bonobo who is a constant source of inspiration for me.  Nine Inch Nails has left an indelible mark on my ear as has composers like Jon Brian, Cliff Martinez and Clint Mansell.  Essentially anyone who can tell a story without words.

5. My latest release is called Great Distances.  7 lovingly crafted electronic tracks that run the gamut from slick and skip beats, cinematic storytelling and contemplative chill.  It’s available via Bad Bat Records on limited edition cassette, digital download as well as on all the streaming outlets.  That will be available on May 17th!

6.  You can find all the music on www.leavingrichmond.comwww.leavingrichmond.bandcamp.com and by searching ‘leaving richmond’ on Spotify.  I hope you will come by and let me soundtrack your day!

I would like to say a huge thank you to JORDAN PIER for taking part in this weeks  'Featured Artist of The Week' 😀😀😀😀

Until next time
