Sounds of Sundance 2018: Jordan Davis

The snow is falling. The streets are crawling … with some of the best artists in the industry today. Main Street is a literal winter wonderland, and we couldn’t be more excited to introduce you to a singer Rolling Stone calls one of “10 new country artists you need to know.” Enjoy.


Describe your sound in three words.
That’s a tough one… I try to let the listener decide that. I want the listener to be able to have their own personal opinion of the music.

What’s your favorite F-word?

Song you can never get out of your head?
“Castle On The Hill” – Ed Sheeran.

Any pre-performance rituals?
A shot of Jack Daniels.

Last thing you ordered at a drive-thru?
Chicken sandwich from chick-fil-a

One film you want to see at the fest?
“Leave No Trace.”

Who are you most excited to spot at the fest? Celeb or otherwise.
One of my favorite movies is “Jeremiah Johnson,” so seeing Robert Redford would be awesome.

Elevator pitch us your idea for a film that would screen at SFF.
I love westerns, so my pitch would be just make a movie full of a bunch of gunfights. Just 2 hours of shooting and explosions, I think it would be a huge hit. Ha.

One thing you’d like to change about your industry?
I’ve got nothing. There are so many talented people in country music, and they’ve all been great to me!

One thing you’d never change about your industry?
The people.

What’s next for you?
Fortunately, we have a lot of stuff coming up. My debut single, “Singles You Up” is still climbing the country charts, and I’m about to head out on my first headlining tour (with Jillian Jaqueline) very soon. Oh and I’m releasing my debut album HOME STATE March 23rd. ha. A lot to be excited about and thankful for!
