Flagship Romance / Press

“In 2010, Flagship Romance set sail in the music world launched by two gifted and seasoned musicians, Shawn Fisher and Jordyn Jackson. The duo, which has quickly caught on in Northeast Florida while gaining a national following, seemed destined in their liaison by musical, as well as romantic fates… Read more here: http://www.mydigitalpublication.com/publication/?i=186755&p=66”

“Flagship Romance, the folk/pop brainchild of real-life lovers Shawn Fisher & Jordyn Jackson, is taking their unique interpretation of the male-female duo experience to the Big Apple this December. They will be performing at the legendary folk music mecca, The Bitter End, on Saturday, December 14th at 7:00PM. They have routed a tour up to New York City in order to attend the charity: ball, the annual gala put on by the NYC-based organization charity: water. Fisher and Jackson have aligned their music career with the clean water cause by organizing the annual Clean Water Music Fest. Over the past two years, their multi-faceted charity event has raised over $35,000 for charity: water.”

“Last summer, revered music zine Paste wrote an article featuring the 10 Best Bands in the state of Florida. While that article is a fair representation of some of the best talent in the Sunshine State, there was one giant and glaring omission: Jacksonville Beach’s Flagship Romance. A boy-girl duo in the vein of The Civil Wars, Delta Rae and Lady Antebellum, their dual harmonies and tender slices of indie folk remain make them arguably one of the most exciting under-the-radar musical acts in not just Florida but the entire nation. Having already supported chart-toppers such as the Goo Goo Dolls and Mumford and Sons, to name a few, the supremely polished duo is more than on their way. Seen this past Saturday at Orlando’s The Social while opening for Caitlin Crosby and Jesse Ruben, they performed what was easily the best set of the night... {Read more at: www.localheroestoday.com/flagship-romance-dazzles-orlando-crowd}”

"All music has a purpose. Maybe its purpose is to evoke emotion, to explain a story, to express love or pain, to get people dancing, or even to just generate money and ratings. There are numerous purposes music hopes to accomplish. One we don't hear of all too often, though, is to help those less fortunate. Flagship Romance sets out to do just that." (article on pages 62-63)

"Flagship Romance (aka Jordyn Jackson and Shawn Fisher) aren't just talented singer/songwriters. They're also passionate humanitarians as witnessed by their organization of Clean Water Music Fest."

"When Jordyn Jackson and Shawn Fisher of Flagship Romance began organizing the Clean Water Music Fest held in Ponte Vedra on August 25, their goal was to raise $5000 to provide families in need with clean drinking water. Before the event even began over $2000 was raised in online donations. Thanks to generous donations, raffles and an impressive silent auction over $10,000 was raised by the end of the evening."

"According to water.org, 3.575 million people die each year from a water-related diseases. That is equal to the entire city of Los Angeles. Instead of just burying their head in the sand, local band Flagship Romance — comprised of musical and romantic duo Jordyn Jackson and Shawn Fisher (lead singer of Son of a Bad Man) — are hosting the first annual Clean Water Music Fest Aug. 25 at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall. "

"Music has the power to polarize. When it’s mixed with activism — which it often is — people’s egos sometimes get chafed, they become defensive or aggressive, and any hope for a common cause can be lost, say Jacksonville-based musicians Shawn Fisher and Jordyn Jackson."

“Formed by Son of a Bad Man lead singer Shawn Fisher and jazz/pop chanteuse Jordyn Jackson, the pair are like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups for your ears: two great voices that sound great together (and if that doesn’t sound like a quote for the old press kit, I don’t know what does). To put it in less caloric terms, Jackson is a more beautiful, and Fisher a less scruffy, American version of Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová—but equally as talented and captivating.”
