Interview with Left Bank Magazine


Jordan Scott

The project of songwriter Jordan Scott, Moniker began from some home recordings while living in New York and working odd jobs, with the “MONiKER EP” and “All Things Excellent” both released in quick succession in 2015. In 2016, the band’s first full album, “MONiKER LP”, received international radio airplay and critical attention around the US and Europe.  Dealing with the loss of a friend, “Good Bye Waste Land” was written by Scott in 2016, using the sounds of rock music to evoke bygone memories of teenage years in suburban Virginia. Afterwards, he returned Moniker to Richmond, VA and assembled a new lineup while continuing to tour and record.
