10 Things About Jordan...

1. Where did you grow up?  
San Antonio Tejas
2. What got you into music?
Early in life I was inspired by the hum of my Grammy putting me to sleep with her sweet lullaby's and my head so near to her hearts beat. Also my mother and her love for the Beatles and The Doors grabbed a hold of my own Rubber Soul. My grandfather played a classical guitar and I loved to watch him create and sing. He is the Music that runs through my veins and attached himself to my soul. 
3. What is your favorite instrument and why?
My favorite instrument is my voice. It has all the notes and it gives a word of reason. I also love the guitar. You can literally play a whole song on two to three chords. I'm a simple kinda hue-man!  
4. What is the best advice you’ve ever received regarding the music business?
Best advice about life in general I can give is to Create yourself through your own life experiences and ability to see the world.

Keep going, stay focused and most of all HAVE FUN WHILE PLAYING MUSIC!
