On 21 October 2013, Jordan released “Whole Lot of Water” on iTunes.[6] The song reached 71 in the UK Singles Chart.[7] and as of September 2015, has over 160,000 views on YouTube.[8] On 12 May 2014, Jordan released a music video for the song “Geography,”[9] which was also the name of his debut EP, released the following month.[10] The EP went on to sell over 10,000 copies independently.
