Ben Jordan can best be classified as a 21st century bard, or a modern troubadour. For years Ben has traveled, listening, learning & playing. His voyage has taken him to several musical hot beds (including New York City, Nashville, New Orleans, San Francisco, Boulder, CO, London Dublin & Prague) where he had the privilege of befriending some rising stars, and established vets, including Derek Trucks, Soulive, Adam MacDougall (The Black Crowes & Chris Robinson Brotherhood) The Slip, Warren Haynes, Kelly Joe Phelps, Adam Levy (Norah Jones),Brad Rice (Ryan Adams, Son Volt & Keith Urban), Don DiLego, Johnny Pisano (Jesse Malin & Ryan Adams) Gregory Alan Isakov, Eric Ness, Sam Green & Rob Fleming of BluesMix.
2010 saw the release of his critically acclaimed “Ghosts Breathing through Our Strings” and a yearlong tour of the U.S.. The end of this tour brought an exciting change as Ben journeyed across the Atlantic for the first time to tour. Little did he know his life would be changed forever by this decision. Arriving in his ancestral homeland of Ireland, Ben immediately fell into the Wicklow music scene. This lead to an invitation to play Americana Weekend two years running, where Ben has flourished, entertaining the crowd with his original road songs.
