Porch Light Apothecary’s motto is ‘Music for the soul… ours to yours’. One can’t listen to their new album Silence to Sound without understanding why. Grown out of two friends playing songs on their NC front porches in 2014, their music is a mixture of Americana, rock, blues, folk, and country. Fronted by Brent Jordan whose lyrics and voice are not soon forgotten, joined by drummer/mandolin player, Jason (JJ) Elliott, they create songs about love, loss, death and everything in between. The band became a quartet with the additions of keyboard/bass player Brandon Whitesell (2015) and Chris Wear on electric guitar (2016). The band is hitting their stride, finding their groove and it is a pleasure to be taken along for the ride.

Silence to Sound includes eight songs written by Brent, who had a past solo album featured on NBC’s hit television show Scrubs. In Silence to Sound, he writes about the joys and pains of real life while casting raw emotion in his songs. “The songs just seem to appear every now and then, out of nowhere,” said Brent. He almost doesn't feel ownership of the songs he writes. It’s something deeper and spiritual. “They're gifts given to me that I have to share.” He so eloquently tells a story with song.

Pulling from his personal experience, Brent crafts approachable lyrics about the profound and the ordinary. “The first track “Hilltop Stella” is a song based loosely on my little sister's experience of 'coming out' in early high school, the struggle to find meaning in relationships and her own place in a small town, and the subsequent journey of obtaining peace, love and truth within and around herself,” said Brent. “Supernova” chronicles a friends’ difficult pregnancy and subsequent loss of their newborn child at 4 hours old. Sharing the heartbreak, as well as the joy of meeting their son, and longing for a future reunion. Turning a most difficult time into a leap of faith and healing.

In “I Won’t Break Your Heart,” an homage to his wife, Brent promises that although there will be tough times, and mistakes will be made, he will never do anything to betray the connection that they share, and that coming from a broken home doesn't define who you are; in many ways it makes you stronger. “Good to Be in Carolina Again” describes his family’s move back to North Carolina, and anyone from Raleigh will appreciate his poetic take on the capital city’s landmarks.

Porch Light Apothecary's musical collaboration is sure to stir something inside of you; drawing you in from different roads of life, calling you up to the music being played by the front porch lights, taking you on an intimate journey of discovery.
