Jordan Igoe CD Release Party w/ Rachel Kate, Stagbriar

Charleston’s Jordan Igoe first began recording tracks for her debut album in 2012, but on Valentine’s Day 2014, she’ll finally release the long-gestating disc, How to Love. And if we don’t mind saying, How to Love was well worth the wait. The lead off track, “Paper May,” is a sultry shuffler with ample doses of old-school country and retro-soul, while a mid-album number, “Losing It,” is a lush piece of pop Americana, the kind of track that the love child of Jeff Tweedy and Burt Bacharach might have written for Cary Ann Hearst. As for the album’s final song, it’s a particularly nasty jazz-F.U. that comes complete with some even nastier guitar playing. “I’ve been playing out for 13 years, and I have never had an album made, so just this was a huge accomplishment for me alone,” Igoe says. How to Love was co-produced by Wolfgang Zimmerman, who is rapidly becoming the preeminent producer in town. Not surprisingly, Igoe has nothing but respect for her comrade in arms. “He is not only easy to get along with and a good listener, but he adds his own creative input. Making this record was not only an unforgettably pleasant experience, but listening to what we created with our hard work and creativity makes me happier than I can describe.” —Chris Haire FRIDAY
