The two-year process of putting together his debut EP ‘The One Who Descends’ with Etins Records has moulded Yarden’s creative process to provide a five-track offering that champions his Afrobeats influence and proves his unique place in the colorful fabric of Nigeria’s musical landscape. With production from upcoming homegrown talent and only two features from friends, Swayvee and Morien, there’s an intentional decision to work with those integral to his journey before reaching out to the international superstars only a phone call away at this point.

More on Yarden

The 23 year old singer-songwriter was born and raised in Lagos, to a musical family, with his dad producing in the local scene. Looking back at his upbringing on mainland Lagos - as the oldest of three and the son of a banker and teacher who loved to host ‘jams’ at home for guests to come and enjoy music (his dad was a DJ before settling down into a family) as well as a singer in the  church choir - it was almost inevitable that Jordan (aka Yarden) would become an artist. 

Growing up Yarden saw the huge productions & relentless work ethic displayed by the likes of Chris Brown, The Weeknd and Michael Jackson, and has long dreamt of bringing the same scale to his own creativity. After years of self-taught songwriting, in 2020 Yarden set his sights on a career in music, signing to Nigerian record label Etins Records continuing to hone his craft and develop his artistry. The lyrical content of his music touches often on the topic of love, the urgent internal yearning of finding “the one” and leans heavily into the feeling of nostalgia melodically. He has shown an ability to create music based on a whole host of different emotions which resonates with fans from all backgrounds. 

A recent 0207 Def Jam signee, his world musical domination is only a matter of time.
