Interview: "To the Stars and Back" - Jordan Astra




I can’t get enough of your infectious new single “To the Stars and Back”! What is the story behind this song? And what was the writing process like?


Jordan: Thank you! Writing the record was always going to be about keeping summer in mind and where id wanna hear this record. For me it was those rooftop and poolside parties or those late night dinners downtown looking fresh with the people you love.



How did music find its way into your life? Was it something you got into later or has it always been there?

Jordan: Yeah music found its way into my life thanks to my parents. Like a lot of us artists and musicians, there was just a lot of variety of music playing, anything from jazz to classic rock and gangster rap, no music was off limits and that was a blessing.







If you had to pick, do you prefer producing or performing?


Jordan: For me performing is the energy, the style, the personality of all those long hours cooking up in the studio. As much as I love cooking up in a studio, there’s nothing like vibing with fans to your music.



What made you make the move to Australia to start your career?


Jordan: Australia is far away! (Shouts my aussies tho) It’s not an ideal home base if I want to tour North America and Europe. I always thought to myself that the music industry is a lot like the NBA; if you want to play in the major leagues you gotta go where the major leagues are played.







If you could collaborate with any artist in the world, who would you pick and why?


Jordan: Amber Mark, Pharrell, Calvin Harris, Silk Sonic, Alicia Keys, Tom Misch, Lucky Daye… want me to continue?? There’s too many to name but it means I wanna work with various people for various reasons.



What can we expect next from you? I’m so excited to see where this journey takes you!


Jordan: 2022 is dedicated to new music and more shows. It’s on my list to hit up NYC and LA, London and Paris, and of course some bigger shows in Toronto.
