A mutual respect for the music each other produced led to friendship between Rob Jordan and Tory Peterson, but it would be many emails and phone calls passed between Chicago and Grand Rapids, Michigan before forming a collaboration.
Jordan took a three-year songwriting hiatus, sledged away in the working world of Chicago, after his former band called it quits. Peterson is a member of the successful Grand Rapids musical act Simien the Whale, but went looking for a creative outlet that matched his other songs. With Peterson nudging him forward, Jordan felt a calling back to music and quickly went on a writing spree.
Realizing that the distance could be beaten, demos and riffs turned to songs, soon the pair were energized, and began recording sessions in Peterson’s studio. In spring of 2012, the pair won the iShowcase industry event in Chicago, garnering the attention of recording professionals.
Jordan’s captivatingly raspy voice and Peterson’s ethereal guitar were rounded out by longtime musical friends. Now the band generates a folky, pop rock sound rooted in the mists of memory. BelloSpark released its first album in March 2013.
