At the core of soul music is a vibrant, embracing spirit, one aimed at connecting the dots of humanity that reside on both sides of the microphone.

"It doesn't matter if there are 10 people in the audience or a 1,000," says Jordan Anderson, lead singer/keyboardist for J & the Causeways. "It's that sacrifice we make of our art, so that people can feel it that much harder the first time they hear you."

In a serendipitous sequence of events, J & the Causeways was formed at the legendary Maple Leaf Bar in New Orleans. A juggernaut soul/R&B ensemble, the group is filled with heavy backbeats and a soaring horn section, all swirling around the magnetic vocal stylings of Anderson.

"We definitely shine live because each and every member of this band loves to be onstage and in that genuine moment of performance," the 31-year-old Anderson says. "New Orleans is home to some of the finest singers and musicians on the planet, which also means you have to bring your A-game to every single show — you're representing this city and the long history of beautiful music that's been created here."

As a kid, Anderson was first exposed to the power of music from his grandmother, a piano teacher in his small rural Louisiana hometown. It was her backroom record collection that mesmerized Anderson, where he found himself thumbing through the vinyl and discovering the likes of Otis Redding, Al Green, Queen, and Aretha Franklin.

With J & the Causeways, Anderson is fronting a band that finds itself mentioned in the same breath as the likes of St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, and The Marcus King Band — all modern-day entities of passion and purpose, each summoning the pulsating, endless energy of soul/R&B music.

"With soul music, it's those live moments where you feel truly elevated, and you're bringing the audience along with you to that higher place," Anderson says. "And you're creating this space of inclusivity and connectivity — there's no way you're leaving that stage without a smile on your face."

For J & the Causeways, it's about bringing forth a communal sense of self within the greater universe of knowns and unknowns — we're all in this together, so let's share in the depths of our raw, honest emotions through the sound and spectacle that is live music.
