Jordan describes his life as a musician as “a journey guided by the wind… I live, breathe, sing, and search for passion, inspiration and adventure like a gypsy. I try not to plan too much – embracing the moments I have for what they are and when they come.” His music is characteristic of such a statement in its eclectic nature and continually evolving style. You won’t find Jordan singing, playing, or writing only a single genre. His versatility reflects his intent to express all angles of emotions, experiences and life happenstance. In his live performances, you can feel this truth as he puts his heart and soul into the mic, drawing you into the stories. From stories of introspection and heartbreak to stories of dancing and sunny days, you’re guaranteed to walk away with truth about his journey in life. You can really get to know him through his music if you’re willing to take the time to pay attention.
“I can’t sit back and play a single type or style of music. Life isn’t that simple to me and for everyone else that breathes air. Sometimes I just wanna skank and enjoy the sunshine and other days it’s the opposite. If my music was all the same I would be lying to you, my listener, about my journey. The last thing I want to create is uninspired music.” -Jordan T.
