Show Review – Jordan Pritchett

Show Review - Jordan Pritchett

By: Remington Fioraso

Who: Jordan Pritchett
Where: Chances Maple Ridge in Maple Ridge, BC
When: April 5, 2014

Throughout the years, I have seen Jordan ‘JP’ Pritchett play with Faber Drive, Ray Gibson, Asmenos, Chris Buck Band, and his father, Aaron Pritchett. Upon seeing that he was playing his first show as a solo artist, it was difficult to say ‘no’ to going. It was slightly weird to see his name in the spotlight instead of him performing with another artist, but I was excited nonetheless. On April 5, I headed from Abbotsford to Chances in Maple Ridge to catch the show. On stage with Jordan was the amazing Philip Puxley was on guitar, banjo, and vocals.

For someone who was nervous prior to playing, they did not show it. Jordan is a natural on stage. He has a phenomenal voice and has shown significant growth as a musician. From previous acoustic performances I have been to, this was the first I saw people going to the front of the stage and dancing. As stated in his early days with Faber Drive, ‘JP’s got that touch.’ He is able to keep the crowd entertained. A highlight of the night for me was hearing him play ‘New Frontier’, a song originally sung by his dad. In addition, I was excited that Backstreet Boys and Pantera were added to the set at the last minute by request.

If given the opportunity to hear him play, do so. Look out Canada, there is an emerging country/rock singer from Abbotsford, British Columbia that will go far.
