Canadian singer songwriter Jordan Klassen has recently released a new studio album Big Intruder and is currently on European/UK tour with Husky. There’s something very unique and compelling about Jordan’s sound. His delicate but intense folk pop melodies blend graciously with his vocals and Big Intruder is an authentic and interesting record with a story and musical artistry worth exploring.
Check out his latest video for the song Dominika below.
While on tour, Jordan took some time to answer a few questions about his new record and life on the road.

Earlier this week Cory Myraas, the mastermind behind Windmills, released a stunning new video for his latest single What Do We Talk About (When We Talk About Love?) which invites us to enter the world of Cory’s life experiences turned into a beautifully compelling musical and visual art.
“We shot the video over 5 days on a road trip from Vancouver, BC to Los Angeles, California. We shot in 25 plus locations and compiled hours of footage, hard to believe we made a 4:40 video. We used a fraction of what we captured to create a visual companion to the song. One that highlights the chaos and energy of the music, the theme of the lyrics, and the new direction for Windmills. Aaron DeSilva filmed and edited something amazing; we’ve known each other for 6 years and have performed on many stages in the past. Working with him in this type of situation was a dream come true.”
The track is taken from his upcoming record Death Of A Ladies’ Man.
“It is the most honest and autobiographical record I’ve ever written. The songs all attack me, my experiences in love, loss, and trying to navigate some bitter truths about myself. I’ve split it up in 6 parts, with 2 “transfigurations” that serve to create warmth and tension in the listener. My goal is to show a progression in my history of love, where I’ve been, what I’ve been to certain people, and how I’ve come out on one side or the other because of it. Have these experiences shaped me to becoming a better man? You’ll have to listen and find out. “
For the first time ever, the new album will be pressed on a limited run of 12″ vinyl, out everywhere on September 29th.

We were breaking every pattern, straying from the map to make a new life on the run
It was early 2012 and one of my friends made me a playlist featuring a bunch of new bands for me to check out. Little I knew that this particular playlist included one band that would inspire my entire world. Their name was The Virginmarys.
