The man’s talent can capture the most sustained ache or joy through a musical verse, which lives like a weight in your belly for a long time after listening.

Secondly, there’s nothing fickle or trendy about this song, it’s simply a once-in-a-lifetime talented dude with a voice you won’t believe, singing one well-crafted and moving song; deeply personal, poetic and resonant in a soulful mix that is pure pop alchemy.

“You Know That I Know,” will take your breath away and is completely unforgettable. The fact that young artists like Carroll are able to express the wisdom and emotional depth of many lifetimes within a song keeps amazing me! Having a vocal range and tone similar to that of Adam Levine, Jordan Carroll draws deftly from a host of influences, that runs from the Blues to John Mayer and The Doors, to create a song that is mesmerizing, deeply satisfying and completely unique.
