about

A tale of returns.

An album about Failure and Terror and Hope-in-the-Face-of-Adversity.

A reminder that it is our friends who keep us alive.

A lesson in similar spelling, but disparate sounds.

A postcard from the road.

Banjo, harmonium, vocals, and songs by Jordan O'Jordan

Recorded and mixed by Keith Hanlon at Musicol Recording, in Columbus, Ohio.

Mastered by Adam Boose at Cauliflower Audio, in Cleveland, Ohio.

"Through Tough Thoughts is the plucky antidote to mundane disappointment from a person, community, or society that dares not to see past its own nose." - Tiny Mix Tapes' Cerberus

"a natural outpouring of songwriting from a singer/songwriter with a vast store of skills to draw on. It’s a rewarding, remarkable record." - Independent Clauses

"The first single, ‘A Lonely Road’, sounds like the motto for the whole thing...five minutes infused with hope and belief, where fears and failures can be battled and grace is to be found in a Dolly Parton song on the radio." - Wake the Deaf

"Seattle's favorite banjo-wielding heartthrob singing about failure and hope." - Jigsaw Records

"JOJ ain’t about the hits, but them squiggly spaces between, and, for that, this album is a worthy study item in American Singer/Songwritery." - Cassette Gods

"Warm sun inside of a worn brown leather shoe inside of a canoe." - Small Albums
