about jordan

 

After logging a few thousand miles hitch-hiking and countless hours busking curbside in cities around the country, Jordan Smart had gained quite a bit of life experience to share with his listeners. Slowly working his way into the hearts of smokey old dive bars and tucked away mountain music festivals, it came as no surprise to those who had come to know and love his music and message when Jordan joined the ranks of folk singers before him and landed multiple slots opening for Senator Bernie Sanders on his 2017 presidential campaign trail. Anyone with a little musical ability can call themselves a singer-songwriter, but Smart is a Troubadour, tried and true, and he earned his chops in the streets of America. 

 

The folk singer-songwriter was born in Cleveland, and raised in the rolling hills of rural North East Ohio. Smart’s songs evoke rich and timeless imagery not unlike the landscape he grew up in or the many he has visited in his travels. He has mastered the art of lyrically conveying both simple and complex human emotion, often with a good dole of wit. With a sound that is raw yet accessible Smart has made friends and fans throughout the country, and his reach is beginning to extend around the globe. He is currently booking in support of his first full-length album entitled “Heart of It All” released fall of 2017.

WHAT FOLKS ARE SAYIN'

"a musician on the margin that can take a raucous crowd and quiet it down to a single thinking and listening organism that hangs on his words with bated breath and utter understanding. The audience listens and cheers him on because with a single guitar and voice it is that kind of visceral – a gut punch of simple honesty." - Glide Magazine

"The Monterey singer/songwriter’s lyrics are like a backpacking trip themselves: candid, fluid and poetic." - Monterey County Weekly
