Brent Jordan sets the scene of an American traveler on the road, easily telling his story through acoustic strum and weathered vocal melodies. His album, Blue Shout Blind, is the seamless musical trip you'll get and will quickly embrace.
Songs like Pretty Little Thief, Everything Changing, and John's Song are easy access songwriter tunes that will give any fan of The Wallflowers, Marc Broussard , and the like, another solid artist to add to the ipod.
Perhaps his best work is American Morning. Here, Jordan brings all of the instrumentation to its fullest working potential(s); leaving nothing undone, and still no toes being stepped on either.
Brent Jordan sounds as passionate as one could and has a natural talent for musical storytelling. If you happen to be in the San Fransisco area, check out www.myspace.com/brentjordanmusic and plan to catch him live.
