Getting To Know... Demi Jordanae

After returning last year with her stunning comeback single 'Final Warning', fast-rising artist Demi Jordanae is back on the grind once again to deliver the acoustic rendition to her 2022 effort 'How Did We Get Here'.

Much like the original version of the track, this stripped-back recording of 'How Did We Get Here' sees her deliver some truly warm and emotive vocal aesthetics throughout. Using little more than a wistfully-played piano and her own compelling voice at the helm, she is certainly looking to pull on our heartstrings with this one.

So with the new single available to stream now, we sat down with her to find out more about her origins and what has been inspiring her most over the years.
