Jordan Klassen returns to Calgary with his unique brand of emotionally provocative indie folk – right on the heels of a new batch of singles and videos. Featuring opener Kyla Ferrier.
With Virtuous Circle, internationally-acclaimed singer-songwriter Jordan Klassen makes his long awaited return, commenting on where in this cycle he has been. “I wrote Virtuous Circle at a time in my life where I felt surrounded by a lot of death primarily; a death in my family, broken relationships, personal instability, and a seemingly endless streak of career disappointments. The song is a plea of hope that what feels like a vicious circle could invert into a virtuous one,” says Klassen.
Despite having its roots in such a tumultuous season, “Virtuous Circle” isn’t despairing. Contemplative, propulsive, and at times sweeping you away, the single brings the strongest cards of Klassen’s talents to the forefront once again. Ever-changing piano lines, aching string arrangements, and an anchor in the immediately recognizable calming vocals.
“I wanted the song to have a sense of darkness, contrasted with hopefulness. I want it to feel like running – breaking away from whatever it is that is chasing you,” Klassen further added.
Over his decade long career, Jordan Klassen has toured throughout Europe, Australia, Canada, and the United States, becoming widely known for his well-crafted arrangements and nuanced songwriting. To date, he has garnered almost 10 million streams worldwide. Jordan Klassen is currently completing his newest record, scheduled for an early 2020 release.
About Kyla Ferrier:
Kyla Ferrier is a singer-songwriter, and composer for theatre and film. Her solo work is at once barebones and poetic, rocking and anthemic. Her pained and dreamy sound has been compared to acts like Daughter, Anohni, Grimes, and ’90s alt rock. Currently, Ferrier is working on some no holds barred singles, and composing music for several theatre productions, including Storybook Theatre’s upcoming “The NeverEnding Story” where she promises to hat tip the iconic film by providing plenty of ’80s synth action.
