The Hundred Percent
Jordan Esker is a self-taught musician with a 90s emo history, a 60s soul phase, and an ambient Gospel future. He has gone from being the screamer in a heavy rock band, to releasing a solo acoustic EP, to creating his own sound - not despite but by constantly collaborating with other musicians.
After releasing “Best Supporting Actor,” Jordan formed The Hundred Percent, consisting of Vincent Montemarano, who has sang and played with Jordan since age 13, Matt Raspo, and Emmit Dobbyn. After multiple tours through the southeast, a showcase at the 2017 Florida Music Conference, being featured in Creative Loafing’s Music Issue as one of 10 breakout bands, and performing on Tampa radio station WMNF, they have released their first songs as a band together. They currently are recording a full album.
