Backyard Beats 17/03/2021

One of New Zealand’s rising R&B stars, Jordan Gavet shares her long-awaited debut EP ‘Smoke’, out now via Sony Music Entertainment New Zealand and available on all streaming platforms. Teaming up with Sydney-based producer Willstah (Ariana Grande, Ella Mai), the eight track release covers strong emotional territory, delving into vulnerability after going through a major period of heartbreak. Following six months of writer’s block, Willstah pushed Jordan into the studio to engage with how she was feeling, and the pair struck gold.

‘Smoke’ features the infectious self-titled track with Western Sydney artist CG Fez, which is the artist’s fastest streaming track to date. Listen to ‘Smoke’ here.

“‘Smoke’ is a reflection of the journey I’ve had in my personal life; getting to a point where I’m taking ownership of my story,” says Jordan. “It’s about the negatives, and instead of running from the smoke, I embrace it and use it as my fuel. It’s a call to action for people who may be facing negativity and hard times – push through, welcome the smoke, because where there is smoke, there is fire.”
