The musical journey of 19-year-old modern pop artist Allegra Jordyn is orchestrated with deep sonic layers – spectral keyboards, inventive drum samples, and a chorus of voices. On her upcoming EP, the spacious instrumentation highlights her expressive vocal clarity and the resolve and conviction within the melodic chronicles of her songs.
Having made music from her early teens on, she says the suite of songs reflects a new chapter in her creativity. Moving to Boston, Allegra studied at the famed Berklee College of Music as a music business major. Returning home during the pandemic, she continued her studies online, saying that being back in Toronto allows her to focus on her craft. In the studio, Allegra commands her art as she explores an expansive and eclectic sonic palette. “It’s about what I want to say, and how I want to represent myself, not about what someone else thinks will work.”
Growing up listening to classic rock artists, Allegra acquired a profound respect for this legacy. Before writing lyrics and melodies, poems and short stories were her creative outlets. As a songwriter, her narrative arc is precise, as she imagines, polishes and revises her words. The upcoming EP contains songs that are deeply significant to her sound, her story, and her truth. “In my mind and in my heart, I am definitely ready.”
