Needle Drop: Jordan Rome, “Charon”

Rough-hewn, Kansas-based singer-songwriter Jordan Rome peppers his bluesy tunes with folk, punk, and hardcore flavors, falling somewhere between Lead Belly and Eddie Vedder. It’s dark and deeply metaphorical material that tends to rattle around in one’s brain before crystallizing into thoroughly conceived folk song meta.

His newest single, “Charon,” is a world-weary lament about the Greek mythological figure Charon who ferries damned souls across the River Styx and into the underworld.

It’s told in the first person, which locks the listener into a subjective journey into the inky darkness without any kind of tether back to reality. This could certainly be the last song you hear, on the last stop, to the last bar, at the end of the tracks.

Rome will be dropping the B-Side to “Charon” at the end of May.
