Jordan Mackampa plays Brighton on 27th February 2024.

Textured, open, and studious Jordan Mackampa in 2023 is immersive and exuberant finally at a place of comfortability in himself and his output as a singer and songwriter. He’s quick to point out musical forebearers like Brandy — to him, Full Moon is a seminal body of work for many an R&B artist. Conversations in and around music from his perspective articulate his grip on the art form and ordained vocation within the sector.

Aptly titled Welcome Home, Kid! Jordan Mackampa intimately invites his emerging and existing fans to get acquainted with a 29-year-old deconstructed and at their most intimate on his sophomore album. The journey began last year in March, and then in November coveted figures such as Oak Felder and Sebastian Kole would eavesdrop on the album’s manifestation acting as informal advisories for Jordan, not just as musicians, but as guides and anchors of encouragement and perseverance on his new trajectory. “They’d tell me to trust my instincts, interrogate my feelings on why things don’t sound right, and comfortability on my songs and lyricism. They were both quintessential in my learning.”

Overall, Welcome Home, Kid! acts as a much-needed embrace for both Jordan Mackampa and listeners. Both nourishing in its musical depth and in examination of self, it reveals the context behind why Jordan is the artist he is and the person. Ultimately Mackampa provides a refreshing quintessential edition to 2024’s first quarter odeing the canons of funk, R&B, gospel, and soul in its ardently honest lyricism and in Jordan’s aptitude for using his voice as the vast instrument that it is. “This project is one I want people to feel, it’s a project I want to show myself on,” he shares earnestly. Luckily for him, Welcome Home, Kid! is a potent leap into the light.
