Bio

With his reputation growing quickly within his hometown, Melbourne MC Jordan Dennis is an artist who'll soon find fans much further afield. The young talent made a name for himself last year as the front-man for Billy Davis, whose debut album A Family Portrait saw support around the globe and had them appearing alongside the likes of Anderson Paak and NoName. His precise flows and energetic live performances have gone from strength-to-strength, and see him poised to debut his first solo releases this year - with debut single 'Crumbs' the first taste of what's to come. Featuring production from one half of Billy Davis' production team, Tentendo, the track showcases Dennis' potential as he begins what is bound to be a successful entrance into the spotlight.

With obvious musical nods to the likes of Chance the Rapper and the aforementioned NoName, 'Crumbs' is a strong introduction to Jordan Dennis for those unfamiliar with his previous features. The track speaks of being lead on and confused in a new relationship, but it's combination of effervescent raps, catchy hooks and sharp production is anything but misdirected.

For an artist who carries themselves with such confidence, most would be surprised to hear music (at least outwardly) is a pursuit that only recently found its way into Jordan's repertoire. Having grown up around a music family, he would share freestyles and ideas exclusively with his close confidants. This was the extent of music for him until one of his cousins shared the news with the Billy Davis crew, who quickly started including him in their recording sessions and performances. Now nurtured among a family of peers, his abilities have increased rapidly - with a run of new music appearing quickly on the horizon.

"She's got more crumbs than a bakery". This is too solid for its own good.

Quick pause to say that Tentendo is proving himself to be one of my favourite producers in the country. Those little horn bursts are giving me life. JD, you ride that beat like a pro surfer, cutting shapes with ease.
