Lie to You
In the hills of north central Massachusetts is the rural town of Winchendon, population 9,918. Nicknamed Toytown because of it's history of wooden toy manufacturing in the 19th century, this is where Jordan Doucette was born Amy Elizabeth Doucette in 1983. Her home was a modest third floor apartment in small town that had little to offer. Her music career began as a child when she and her mother would sing along to Aretha Franklin records. Linda McCormack taught Jordan some guitar techniques and gave the adolescent a world that would provide escape from a bleak reality. Today, Jordan Doucette's world changes when she takes the stage, and that's what she does for her audience. This natural loves performing for audiences large and small. 'I want to leave people feeling inspired. I find it freeing to be able to relate to people, and on stage you can weave your world around people and pull them in.' That was her goal when Jordan recorded her first independent album, Lie To You. Lie To You boasts eleven tracks penned and performed with Jordan's customary spunk. In it, Jordan's four-piece rock band pulls driving beats, power chords, delicate percussion, compelling melodies, and emotionally charged lyrics together with a touch of acoustic funk. With songs inspired by everything from a spur-of-the-moment road trip to New York on $80 to a teen running away from an abusive father, Jordan draws you through a well-crafted road trip of life's bittersweet moments. With a honey-dipped voice as sultry as a tropical summer day, her silky rock style freely lends itself to any subject this chanteuse shares. And the industry has been taking notice. Lie To You has already been featured on internationally syndicated radio program Blues Deluxe, with four of the album's eleven tracks making a showing in the top 40 pop rock charts at freeworldradio.com. Metronome Magazine agrees that Lie To You is 'Worthy of a Boston Music Award Nomination', and State of Emergency(.net)'s Amy McGill says it all when she states 'Doucette is a sophisticated singer/songwriter that easily belies her years... This record oozes talent and it's just a matter of time before Doucette is making her way towards mainstream stardom.' Influences: Alanis, Sheryl Crow, Sarah McLachlan, Hanson and Aretha Franklin.
