King Calaway is down a member as Jordan Harvey has departed the band to “pursue his own musical journey.”

The group revealed the news to fans via social media in a heartfelt letter to their followers.

“This time during quarantine has been a big reminder that nothing ever stays the same,” the band wrote. “Everyone has been forced to change and adapt the last few months, and King Calaway is no exception.”

They went on to share that Jordan has decided to leave the band and wished him well in his next musical chapter.

“While we are sad to see him go, we mutually decided that this is the best thing for Jordan and the band moving forward,” the note reads.

King Calaway will continue on with members Chad Michael Jervis, Simon Dumas, Chris Deaton, Caleb Miller and Austin Luther.

“As for King Calaway we are looking forward to releasing new music in the near future and we cannot wait to see you all face-to-face very soon,” the remaining members shared.

King Calaway formed in 2018 and released their debut album, Rivers, in the fall of 2019 via BBR Music Group’s Stoney Creek Records.
