Jordan Benker has been touring the country with his undeniable indie rock style for years. Discovering music at a very young age, he quickly picked up guitar as a pre-teen and thanks his infatuation with classic rock as his biggest influence today. Years into writing and recording his own songs with an analog 8 track recording console, he took his talents to Berklee College of Music. While attending Berklee, his musical abilities increased as well as his knowledge of becoming a music producer. It was then that he transitioned into digital recording for all of his works. This multi-talented musician began releasing music under “Jordan Benker” and kicked off his career. But it was in 2014 that Benker chose to switch things up and go under the moniker, Look Out Love.
Benker debuted his first EP Give and Takeover (under Look Out Love) which was self-produced and fully written himself. After months of opening for staple acts such as The Spill Canvas, Paradise Fears and Ryan Cabrera, Benker was ready to release his follow up EP entitled It’s 11:11 Somewhere… (under Look Out Love) in January 2015. Today, Look Out Love is thrilled to announce a brand new EP, Oh Boy, a collection of indie-rock classic styles tackling the effects that love has on one another and the ups and downs that it can bring in life. Look Out Love is proud to reveal this 4-track EP on September 1, 2015. Benker had this to add:
“If there was a way to sum up what the future of Look Out Love holds, it would be the Oh Boy EP. These 4 songs all have a certain raw and real persona, and each track stands out with their own unique Look Out Love quirks. The range of emotions felt on the record spans a pretty large scale, and it’s only a plus that each song will make you want to dance.”
Today, fans can pre-order Oh Boy (HERE) with an automatic download of the track “Once.” “Once” is a song about deceit and the acceptance of being alone. Benker classifies the track as reminding him of “an 80’s high school dance, but kind of quirky.” As a huge fans of 80’s music, Benker tried to encapsulate the feeling of that era while still keeping the song fresh with today’s current vibe.
