Sultan’s new album is the culmination of many months of writing and recording, and sees powerhouse riffs met by crackling gospel interludes, old-school rock and roll jams, pure country tones, bare and aching ballads, harmonies, horns, banjos – even an Arabic scale or two. Blackbird is the simple journey of a man singing about love, desire and identity.
Virtuoso guitar player Jordan Officer, who is well known for his work with Susie Arioli, launched his solo career in 2010 with an instrumental album. This time he is back with a new album, recorded entirely during his six month stay in New York. Influenced by the blues but with a personal twist, this album is made up mostly of original songs written by Jordan Officer. With excellent New York musicians as collaborators, Jordan’s talent shines though once again and this time with vocals to match.
