Distraction Pieces | Scroobius Pip

Jordan Gray

Under the banner of ‘Tall Dark Friend’, Jordan branched into Rap and Spoken-word in late 2015. Jordan’s original piece ‘In Heels’ gained overnight acclaim after retweets from Scroobius Pip and comedian and actor Rufus Hound. The track speaks about the trials and tribulation of life as a Trans* person in estuary England – and prompted an invitation to appear on Episode #57 of Scroobius Pip’s chart-topping weekly podcast ‘Distraction Pieces’. Previous guests include Russell Brand, Zane Lowe, Simon Pegg, Alan Moore, Frankie Boyle and Stewart Lee. Excerpts from the conversation were transcribed and now feature in the best-selling ‘Distraction Pieces’ Book.

A follow up to ‘In Heels’ – ‘The Tall Dark Blues’ – rekindled the public’s acclaim and has triggered the production of a full Spoken-word/Uk-Rap EP entitled ‘Cry For The Camera’ (coming soon!).
