Exclusive Artist Review: Jordan Hasto – “Blood Red Moon” & “Where Is Home” Singles

For the last ten years, Austin-based Alt-Rock recording artist Jordan Hasto has emerged onto the market with his uniquely versatile and catchy signature sound; drawing influences from a vast array of industry heavyweights like John Mayer, Jimmy Page, and Marvin Gaye respectively. Since hitting the ground running, Hasto has diligently put out an array of eclectic releases that showcase his multifaceted songwriting, authentic performance value and several crucial angles of his musicianship factors that really shine a light on his ability to write wholesome songs with deeper meanings behind them. And Hasto’s two newest anchor singles are perfect examples of this formula.

The first single is “Blood Red Moon”, an upbeat track with a funky guitar progression, smooth rhythm section and soulful vocals with thought provoking lyrics that immediately draw you in from the very first verse. Jordan Hasto’s ability to create an anthemic and atmospheric aura on this track is very apparent, utilizing multiple instrumental layers in the arena-like chorus including keyboard swells, melodic harmony placements and chorus-driven backup vocals that truly give this song an ambient atmosphere. It’s a track that you will easily find yourself identifying with lyrically while also fully embracing the soul soothing nature of the song’s instrumental structures. If this is your first discovery of Hasto’s discography, then you’ll become an instant fan from this song alone. It delivers a first impression that will easily stick with you.

The second new single is the more crunchy guitar-driven “Where Is Home”, definitely the highlight of both tracks and completely compliments the other. This atmospheric number really encompasses Hasto’s mid-to-high range vocal melodies and makes great use of the same ambient formula as the other track, but this time implements more crafty chord progressions that allow Hasto’s vocal structures to perform more at the forefront while adding a more innovative Pop sensibility with its production value that definitely makes it more of a standout of its calibre. It’s an Alt-Rock song that diligently balances both originality and familiarity in a way that garners the listener with tastes of something completely fresh yet still identifiable with its doses of nostalgia that take place in several parts of the song.

Overall, Jordan Hasto’s newest duo of singles have immense staying power – the power to stay with you even long after its over. They will also definitely entice new listeners to do a deep dive into his discography as well as keep a close eye (and ear) on future releases. We can’t recommend these songs highly enough. They are currently available on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes and several other digital music streaming platforms.
