Jordan Rakei


Jordan Rakei is known to millions as a super producer, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and DIY innovator. The artist released his album ‘The Loop’ on 10 May, and he's coming to Oslo and Rockefeller on 15 September!

Born in New Zealand and raised in Australia, Jordan Rakei already had a string of critically acclaimed albums under his belt by the time he turned 30, with Grammy winners, chart toppers and Mercury Prize nominees all vying to work with him. His voice is able to touch the soul and bring those deeply buried emotions right to the surface.

He has released his fifth album ‘The Loop’, and made the following statement:
‘On this album, I wanted to get back to why I fell in love with music in the first place. All the artists I grew up listening to - Stevie Wonder, Bill Withers, Curtis Mayfield, D'Angelo - I found myself listening to again without that analytical producer side. And I kept that same approach when I started writing new music. No judgement, but also a lot of ambition and desire to make these grand-sounding arrangements.’

Fans and critics alike will realise that this is a far cry from the DIY sound he was previously known for, and the protagonist himself says: ‘I didn't want this music to sound like it was made in a bedroom’.
