Following his departure from The Movement last year, singer/guitarist Jordan Miller, is back promoting his latest solo EP as well as his new group, The Executives. The Pier had time to catch up with Jordan to get the update & hear more about his new group…
It’s been almost a year since Jordan Miller told his former band members in The Movement that he wanted to part ways, hours before their 4/20 show in Spartanburg S.C. In the year that’s passed, his former band mates in The Movement have moved on with their own endeavors, recording music out in CA. Meanwhile, Jordan Miller has been staying active in music with his new band The Executives & released his solo EP titled Public Consumption back in December.

Even while in The Movement, this was Jordan’s side project. The Executives have actually been jamming off and on since 2008. The group consists of Britt Barker on Bass, Drew Corontzes on Drums & Jordan Miller on Guitar/Vocals.
“We started out jamming a few years back in Clemson, SC with the 3 of us and also Johnny ‘Keys’ Bowling (former keyboardist for The Movement),” shares Miller. “When I decided to split, Britt, Drew, and myself thought we should fire the group back up and give it a real shot.”
Jordan describes his solo EP, Public Consumption, as the blueprint for the future sound of The Executives. It’s more of a pop direction with catchy love songs, but still includes the familiar sound & style long time fans of The Movement are familiar with hearing from Jordan.
“I recorded Public Consumption with Rick Beato in Atlanta, GA. He’s the same producer who produced The Movement’s ‘One More Night’ record….Drew Corontzes played drums and I was trying to play everything else, which was different for me and a rewarding challenge because I love this record,” shares Miller.
Miller describes new bassist Britt Barker as “one monster of a beat maker’ and expects some serious hip hop influence on future tracks. They’re in the process of writing new songs for a full length album, but no release date is imminent.
