Somme is ready to take the spotlight with her debut self titled EP. Jordan Cantor, professionally known as Somme, has been playing guitar since she was 6, started writing songs a few years later, and then mastered the drums and bass by the tender age of 12. After performing in the indie rock band Traffic Bear in high school, Jordan enrolled in The Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at NYU but decided to take an internship at Killphonic in Los Angeles for first hand industry experience. Since moving to LA, Jordan created her art-pop persona Somme and began writing what would be her debut EP.
Jordan Cantor embraces her new identity Somme, drawing inspiration from the greatest female songstresses and powerhouses like Robyn, Lorde, and of course Fleetwood Mac. She spent a year and a half writing and recording songs for her debut and strips away layers exposing the most vulnerable parts creating a debut that is equal parts beautiful, heart wrenching, and soulful.

DNCE exploded onto the scene as Joe Jonas’ new musical brain child with former Jonas Brothers drummer Jack Lawless, JinJoo Lee, and Cole Whittle. Their debut single “Cake By The Ocean” had us confused until we heard it and we instantly wanted more music from this super fun electronic dance band. And to go eat cake by the ocean.
Now, Joe and his cohorts are gearing up to release their debut EP “SWAAY” on October 23rd! No word yet if they’ll tour the EP (they should, and soon!) but they’ll be playing several stops 2015 iHeartRadio Jingle Ball tour.
