JORDAN McROBBIE Lives In Balance

Jordan-McRobbie-and-Joe-Pule

 “A lot of (the EP) is to do with the dissolution of the human ego and learning to act from a balanced place of pure compassion and empathy for mother earth and our fellow brothers and sisters.”

Jordan McRobbie launches his new EP, Rising From Within, with a show that also celebrates the release of Joe Pulé‘s EP, Flying Colours, at Clancy’s Fremantle this Saturday, December 13. BOB GORDON checks in.

What did you want to evoke of yourself on this new EP?

It’s been an entirely new experience, allowing me to explore a much heavier side of my expression as well as experiment with new soundscapes and different dynamics. It articulates a journey through the purifying fire of self-awareness to true consciousness.

What are you writing about these days?

The EP was largely inspired by revelations I’d had during a 10-day silent meditation in the hills of Brookton. A lot of it is to do with the dissolution of the human ego and learning to act from a balanced place of pure compassion and empathy for Mother Earth and our fellow brothers and sisters.

You play live all the time; does that affect what you record, or do you try and keep the two separate?

A couple of the songs I wanted to record two years ago but it didn’t feel right at the time. They always seemed go down well live, but I wanted to wait until I could do justice to their recorded versions. Whereas the other three are brand new that I began writing onstage and finished in the studio.

You’re co-launching with Joe Pulé and you’re both set to tour and then record an album. Describe the musical chemistry between you both?

He’s my best friend and musical brother. We’d lived together for a while in Freo and would jam on each other’s songs each night. It was only a matter of time before we began collaborating. I’m stoked to be sharing the space with such an enlightened, uninhibited soul.

How does 2015 look from here?

Lots of touring, writing, recording and nature time.
