Known for poignant, insightful lyrics that pinpoint the human experience as seen from a small town boy with big dreams, deep insight, and strong desire to connect, Jordy Searcy is the real thing. Bringing new life to the indie pop music scene, Jordy is renowned for his organic, fresh take on songwriting and his passion for bridging the gap between the artist and the audience.
Born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Jordy grew up playing music with his family, in his church, and on his own – finding his voice in music early on. Shaped by his early memories of writing and playing music with his parents and siblings, he put together his first mix tape of original songs as early as middle school. At just fourteen years old, he started playing shows for anyone who would listen. In 2014, Jordy landed a spot on NBC’s The Voice, where he was coached under Pharrell Williams. It was during this time that he shifted his focus from performing onto blazing his own trail as a songwriter and vocalist.
After leaving The Voice, Jordy packed up and moved to Nashville to pursue his career in earnest. It was during this early stage that he discovered what inspires his songwriting most¬–connecting with his audience. His 2018 EP, Dark in The City, was met with critical acclaim, launching him into the Nashville songwriting scene and a touring career of over 150 shows per year nationwide. The EP’s seven tracks are tangibly human¬–laced with lyrical depth and the true markings of a masterful songwriter. The process became like second nature for Jordy, “The day-to-day repetition of songwriting is something I really have grown to love. I think it’s a muscle I will always enjoy exercising.”
Jordy’s new music promises to deliver what he is known for: authentic, original music driven by his faith, emotional depth, and his intrinsic desire to connect with an audience. On writing the album, Jordy says, “it was a long process–I started between 250-300 songs, and in that discovered a whole new sound that I wouldn’t arrived at without that process. Lucas Morton’s production was also an essential part of choosing and forming the songs, as I feel like the recordings took on a life beyond the songwriting when we got into the studio. We wanted this record to sound like Julia Michaels meets The Beatles, and I think we got something pretty special.” The authenticity that he brings to his music and his live shows is what sets him apart. Pharrell Williams said it best, “There’s something different about Jordy.”

When you hear Marielle Kraft’s music or experience her candid live shows, you feel as though you already know her. The indie pop singer/songwriter, now based in Nashville, displays craftsmanship beyond her years, following suit to artists like Shawn Mendes, Maisie Peters, and Taylor Swift.
Self-taught, the Rhode Island native began playing guitar at 16 and soon writing songs that strike chords with listeners everywhere. Her gift for storytelling is evident through her use of salient detail, raw emotion, and poignant word choice to describe moments “exactly as they feel.”
Over the past few years, Marielle Kraft has self-released one original EP, seven singles, and four official music videos.
Kraft’s 2017 debut single, "How Far You Feel," has collected nearly half a million streams across platforms. The indie pop breakout track seeks to understand the dichotomy of physical vs. emotional distance in relationships, brilliantly expressing “what many feel but cannot find the right words to say.”
Marielle’s 2018 single, “Test Drive,” was the first on her debut EP, followed by a second release in February 2019: “Toothbrush.” This fan-favorite soft pop tune was coupled with a brilliantly creative lyric video comprised of 50 fans singing along to her lyrics using custom Marielle Kraft toothbrushes.
Kraft’s third EP single, “Better Without You,” arrived on May 17th, 2019 across platforms. This “standout track” reaches new heights in pop production and lyrical construction. Premiering on GroundSounds, the bicoastal music blog raves of the sparkling single, “The song shows Kraft’s big-time pop sensibilities. It’s addicting, charming, and shows why she’s a name to watch this year.”
Each of these three singles culminated as Marielle Kraft’s debut studio EP, “The Deep End.” Officially released on July 12th, 2019 Kraft’s first effort is notably strong both lyrically and sonically, described by The Music Mermaid as “song after song of mini pop addictions.”
Kraft’s EP release was directly followed by her first headlining east coast tour. Her “winning personality,” “genuine connection",” and “gift for story telling” on stage have fueled the ever-growing crowds at each of her shows, with no signs of slowing down.
In February 2020, Marielle Kraft co-released an “anthemic” and “heart-filled” single with Joshua Howard entitled “In It Together”, which has quickly gained support across platforms.
Marielle Kraft regularly plays at venues across the United States, sharing stages with names as big as Jon McLaughlin, Ava Max, and Betty Who. She presents her live shows as a seamless narrative: evocative yet encouraging, deeply reflective yet refreshing. The raw authenticity with which Marielle invites listeners into her story cultivates a relationship with them beyond the song, as she is known to “bring together a room full of strangers.”
In spring 2018, she was crowned Grand Champion of the Mid-Atlantic Singer-Songwriter Competition, and the following June she delivered a Tedx Talk at Firefly 2018, discussing the importance of honesty rooted in her songwriting process.
Marielle Kraft’s October 23rd single, “Portland,” breathtakingly captures the moment we find ourselves in, and speaks volumes of the young artist’s songwriting abilities.
Without missing a beat, Marielle Kraft released back to back singles to kick off 2021, both of which found major traction on Tiktok before becoming fully studio produced releases. “Everyone But Me” (February 19th) and “We Were Never Friends” (March 24th) feature a more developed sound than seen from Marielle before, and have cultivated her biggest streaming debuts to date. With more new releases on the way, Kraft is on track for an even bigger 2021.
Since leaving her full-time teaching career to pursue a life committed to creating music, Marielle Kraft has promise to follow suit to artists like Julia Michaels and Maisie Peters as the young songwriter makes a growing impact in the indie pop scene.
