decoded Q&A

Your name: 
Derek Jordan.

Where are you from?
Los Angeles, California.

Name of band:

Who else is in your band? 
Heather Miller and Amy Clark.

How would you describe yourselves?
Native rock. Our style of rock is really organic, genuine and it has a Native American twist to some of the rhythms and melodies.

Who are your main influences musically?
Dead Sara, Muse and Dave Grohl.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
decoded has many goals all focusing on one big picture. We want to be a part of as many lives as we can through touring the world many times over, putting on unforgettable shows for everyone in attendance, and putting out as many quality albums as we can. 

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Touring the Northwestern United States with decoded. It was our first tour. We booked everything on our own and loved the whole experience. We also got to play our first festival on that tour at Boise, Idaho's Treefort Music Fest.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
We recently toured through Phoenix, Arizona, and during one of our road snack stops, we bought this pure, no-ingredient added beef jerky. It tasted like chalk and was so dry that it gave me the chills as I was chewing it. It was awful.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
Topanga. It's our most popular song and an absolute blast to play live.  

Where can we listen to it? 

Where can we find out more about your music?

Anything else you’d like to say about your band/music that I forgot to ask?
We'll be hitting the studio soon to record a new song that will be produced by Vanessa Silberman and we're putting together a Fall tour!
