This is "Airborne" by Jordan McCants featured in our Fall 2021 magazine.
This song at its heart is about meeting your fears face to face. In my experience, we only grow by pushing ourselves beyond our comfort zones in healthy ways. This is the closing track of my debut album, "i don't want to live like that", to be released on February 14th, 2020. Recorded, produced, mixed, and mastered in my apartment bedroom in late 2019. Features guitar, organ, electric piano, and French horn.

A song I wrote when I was about to graduate and move on to the next things. It's a scary step for everybody. The way everything came together left me speechlessly grateful for where I am today. This song is a celebration of the yes's AND the no's. This is the sixth song on my debut album, "i don't want to live like that", which will be released on February 14th, 2020. I recorded and produced it in my apartment here in Auburn.
This song tells the story of the facets and issues of smaall towns of the South. It specifically references the significance of Baptist belief and obsession with football that these towns often have. In one of these towns, there was a high school rape case involving a couple students, and here I am lightly questioning why it happened, and pointing out how the rumors flew and detrimentally impacted the girl who came foward. It all happened over social media and the internet, which I am comparing to the old saying "heard it through the grapevine". Therefore, social media is our modern vine.

Inspired by a rainy day, I wanted to make a more melancholy song that would be great to listen to while studying or relaxing. It is also on my SoundCloud. soundcloud.com/everettclemons
This track is essentially my impression of Nujabes, a producer whose music I have been studying to for the past 8 years. I often wonder how my GPA would appear without his catalog. The lyrics reflect the overly self-conscious outlook I sometimes hold in the face of love. Surely childish, but hopefully relatable. I composed the beat from scratch and am very happy with it, please enjoy.
This is one of my favorite songs I've ever written. The tension caused by the chord progression is completely contrasted by the easy guitar. The entire song has an effect on it called LFO. What I used this for was to bring the volume down every 2 beats and back up again immediately. This creates a very "wavy" effect that plays directly into the drums I played. This is an easy going song and is perfect to study to.
Of all the artists, composers, and authors I have come to revere and appreciate, Vincent van Gogh is one of the few that I cannot remember being unaware of.
