Tom isn’t the only one who was right! BORT is here to bring their own invasion of pop punk from the depths of the galaxy right to your stereo with their release of “Can You Hear Me.” Fronted by Jordan McGraw with help from friends Zach Merrick (All Time Low) and Jack Lawless (Jonas Brothers, DNCE), BORT delivers exactly what you didn’t know you needed!

Jordan McGraw on his musical journey:

“I grew up playing in bands. Eventually, I grew to absolutely hate the egos involved in what was essentially being in 5 relationships at once. I left my last band and went headfirst into the idea of being a solo act. After banging my head against that wall for longer than I probably should have I got together with a couple friends and started playing music that I would want to listen to if I were just a fan. Turns out I had just been in bands with the wrong people. This shit is fun when you’re doing it for the right reasons with the right people.”

BORT is a Los Angeles-based rock band inspired by the music of the late 1990s. Satisfied equally by world domination and a sick backyard party with plenty of tequila, BORT’s true mission is to make music worth dancing about. “If you don’t listen to BORT, fuck you,” says some random alien that seems to have only heard this particular band’s music. At the helm is Jordan McGraw, whose idea of formal wear is a Butthole Surfers t-shirt and a spritz of vintage Michael Jordan cologne. “The Pixies fuck,” says McGraw when asked about his biggest influence.
