the stars in your eyes
Camryn Jordans is a young songwriter, and with a list of influences such as Pink, Sia, Bruno Mars, Gabrielle Aplin, Rhianna and Ed Sheeran, there is a current familiarity in the arrangement of song.
‘The Stars In Your Eyes’ is a well-crafted story of a returning soldier reconnecting with his daughter that leads into dealing with PTSD affecting military personnel and their families, with 100% of iTunes proceeds going to the Soldier On charity.
The track starts with gentle fingerpicking and volume swells with Camryn’s vocals very strong with an honesty and sense of vulnerability. The phrasing of her lyrics with building drama through the mix of strings and distorted guitar chords really work well and I can easily imagine hearing this in a movie soundtrack.
Probably though the most amazing thing about this song is at only 15 years, Camryn has an ability to capture a highly emotive and passionate approach with her song-writing. Definitely one local songwriter to keep an eye on.
