Since it's release in April, Dave's new record Bring Back Red Raspberry, has been receiving killer reviews and Dave has returned to his most touring since his days with Juice. The album has been featured in numerous local and regional magazines and websites, including getting a shout out on NPR's weekend edition. He's also been featured on numerous TV and radio stations, including New Orleans' WWOZ, WWL and WGNO; Telluride, CO's KOTO and Santa Fe's KBAC.
He's done gigs throughout the Gulf Coast, Mississippi, New Mexico, Colorado and in September embarks on a tour through the Southeast, before returning to home to New Orleans in October with gigs at the Louisiana Seafood Fest, the Voice of The Wetlands Fest, the Maple Leaf; as well as the Pensacola Beach Songwriter's Fest and Jackson, MS Red Beans and Rice Festival.
Check out a great article in An Honest Tune Magazine on the album and Dave's career here.
"...like a rustic, Cajun Paul Westerberg, mixed with a Springsteenian sense of wordplay." -offBeat Magazine
"Jordan's quietly desperate landscapes come off as deceptively offhand The Basement Tapes or what the Stones used to do to country." -offBeat Magazine
"...runs the gamut of southern roots sounds, most played with rock's edge and a luxurious lack of urgency." -My Spilt Milk
"...stripped down roots rock, as comfortable in the corners of rowdy pubs or smoky blues holes." -Gambit Magazine
"Listening to the record from start to finish brings to mind the experience of walking through the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival...a diversity that defies categorization." -An Honest Tune
Prior to its release, the album was featured on nola.com, offBeat.com, Gambit, the Vinyl District blog, My Spilt Milk, as well as live performances on WWL-TV's Eyewitness Morning News and WWOZ's New Orleans Music Show. You can check out videos on the video page!
After many starts and stops, Dave turned to kickstarter to raise the funds to complete the album. The campaign was an overwhelming success as Dave raised over $12,000 from his national, regional and local fanbase, reflecting both the legacy he built with Juice and his south Louisiana roots.
