Canadian-Based Musician Ushers In Summer With His Latest LP

Toronto, Ontario - Inspired by the classic R&B music of yesteryear, Jordan John releases his album, Funk Parade. An homage to one of the more soulful and free-spirited genres in music, the album boasts nimble bass lines, smooth compositions, groovy guitar riffs and John's alluring voice. A collection of eleven songs, the album showcases his impeccable range and musicianship. "I never envisioned being afforded an opportunity to make a late '60's/early '70's retro soul and classic Rhythm 'n Blues record!" John explains.  Funk Parade is now available to stream and download on digital media platforms worldwide.


Drawing inspiration from the likes of Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Prince, Aretha Franklin, Parliament-Funkadelic and countless others, Funk Parade delivers a refreshing new spin on a classic sound. John produced and wrote a majority of the songs on the record, in addition to playing multiple instruments with the accompaniment of the legendary Prakash John (George Clinton, Lou Reed, Alice Cooper) on bass.  Funk Parade ebbs and flows with tracks that range from upbeat and danceable like, "Coconut Bridge," to sleek and groovy-like, "Too High On Love."  The album brings forth a unique blend of genres combining the true spirit of R&B with elements of modern funk.
