The Story

Inspiration

What started as a dude playing guitar in his bedroom on the weekends has turned in to a sound unlike anything else in the Pittsburgh music scene; blending pop, hip-pop, punk, and rock with beautifully hypnotic vocals. Starting in 2016 with some cheap equipment and little knowledge of production Jordan Oberrath began writing and recording songs in his home. After playing a few shows and learning that there was a lot to learn Jordan delved deeper into musical theory and production; finally releasing music in 2019 and playing more shows with a full band. By late spring 2020 Jordan had abandoned the band and live performance idea in order to focus on writing and recording music to glorify his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Jordan has a love and passion for music that has been with him his entire live. Having gone through struggles in life like so many others Jordan has always found comfort in music. It is this passion and saving grace in music that inspired Jordan to try and use music to help others who may be going through struggles. Having found his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, in 2018 Jordan is certain that it is his calling to tell others the good news. He believes music has the power to reach people in a way that nothing else does, and it is through music that Jordan aims to help and heal others with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. There is supernatural power in the Holy Spirit and Jordan aims to reach others and show them that they too can be transformed by it .

As a young child Jordan remembers dancing to old  Beatles and Beach Boys records with his mother and watching his father play 70's rock on guitar. MC Hammer and Paula Abdul were Jordan's first cassettes but they were soon replaced with Metallica and Guns and Roses. In his rebellious teens Jordan discovered 2Pac and Eminem. This later turned in to Sublime. By his mid 20's he was raising children and rediscovered The Beach Boys, who remain his greatest influence. Since that time modern rock bands like The Killers, Foster the People, Paramore, and Grouplove have also influenced his music but his son introducing him to Twenty One Pilots has probably made the most impact other than discovering Pet Sounds and Smile.
