At 16, Jordan Green is well on his way to being the singer/songwriter he aspires to be. His soulful voice, quirky lyrics and bluesy roots rock melodies are the result of six years of self-motivation and hard work. His positive energy and dedication keep him steady on a continuing journey to develop a sound all his own.
There was no denying from the moment he picked up a ukelele at the age of 7, that Jordan was destined to be a musician. Since then, he's barely stopped to catch his breath ...practicing, singing, writing, recording, performing, teaching...Jordan does it all with unbridled passion.
In 2008, Jordan started as a student at The Original Music School where he studies songwriting, guitar and bass. It was there he formed his first band, "Ridiculous", writing dozens of songs and performing locally with his bandmates until they parted ways in 2011.
In 2012, Jordan was introduced to aspiring country singer Katie G. She had written a song called "Heaven" and needed a back up band to help her enter a local talent competition. Though Jordan had never played country music before, he readily picked up his guitar and joined the ranks of Katie's newly formed band - The Originals.
By the finals of the competition, The Originals had morphed into more than just a back up band for Katie G. They decided to continue working together. They began learning each other's songs and started showcasing not only Katie G.'s music, but all the other band member's music as well. The gigs began pouring in - festivals, fairs, charity events and a weekly open mic night and Anthony's Pizzeria in Morristown.
The open mic night was just the venue Jordan needed to jump start his own writing again. Jordan decided it was the right time to begin working one on one with his longtime teacher and mentor, Anthony Vitale. Together, they began polishing his new songs and heading into the studio to lay down the tracks.
"Results May Vary" was Jordan's first solo release in the fall of 2013 and was picked up by several internet stations and a few FM stations. "Results" charted on VRadio Nashville's Top 40 after only one week of airplay, stayed on the chart for 12 weeks, earning Jordan "Spotlight Artist of the Week" twice and landing him an interview with the station. "Results" can by heard on Clays Country Radio, Iceman's Cavern and Hamilton Radio. In Australia, the single was the #3 most requested song for the month of August and is in the running for most requested song of the year on the "Stars of Tomorrow" Radio Show airing on Triple H 100.1. FM and 2RDJ 88.1 FM in Sydney. "Results" was also featured on "The Kids Take Nashville Show" on NBRN.FM in Nashville and Jordan was interviewed by the show's host, Landon Wall.
In the summer of 2014, Jordan became an ambassador for HeartSongs for Veterans and HeartSongs for Causes. HeartSongs is an organization where artists donate a song with all the proceeds made from the sale of the songs going directly to a specific cause.
