Jordy Towers "Pretty Monster" new artist
Learn more about this rising star To understand Jordy Towers, to truly appreciate the full force of his singular personality, you kind of have to meet him in person. We hope, for your sake, you get that chance someday. A diminutive, mohawked motormouth with an easy laugh, Towers is instantly likeable. He’s smart, scrappy, and hilarious — with a swaggering, rap-star confidence that might come off as arrogance if it didn’t mask the fact that Towers is essentially an attention-seeking kid from a broken home who pretty much raised himself. Born and bred in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley, he was homeless until a few months ago when he signed a record deal with Roma Records/Blackground Records. Towers’ story is intense, and if we tried to tell it all here, we’d be writing a book, not a bio. So listen to the music, because it’s all in the songs the 24-year-old singer and rapper is cooking up in the studio for his debut album.
