THIS IS ME
Jordan clearly rocks with the best...' - The Vinyl District Blog
"...a polished, hook heavy gem that encompasses all of the things that make Jordan's music so damn good. It is mellow and heartfelt, road-worn and earnest..."-Hittin' The Note
The personification of the New Orleans ethos.- Where Yat Magazine
Sublime - Keith Spera, Times Picayune
"...like a rustic, Cajun Paul Westerberg, mixed with a Springsteenian sense of wordplay." -offBeat Magazine
I think I like the way that dude sings.- the great Clarence Gatemouth Brown
From the Northern Lights in Alaska to the southernmost point in Key West, for nearly 3 decades Dave has traveled the highways of America, sharing his music and the culture of New Orleans and south Louisiana. Along the way he has visited all 50 states and played every kind of gig imaginable- from world renowned festivals like the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Telluride Blues & Brews Festival; to smoky dive bars and American music institutions the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco and the Fox Theater in Boulder, and back to his legendary hometown venues Tipitina’s and the Maple Leaf in New Orleans. It’s not just a music career, but a lifelong passion of seeking out America and things that connect us.
An award winning songwriter and bandleader, his songs and storytelling cover the gamut of collective emotion- love and loss, joy and grief, pleasure and pain, whimsy and folly. Stylistically, he’s been described as a swampy lovechild of Tom Petty, Dr. John and John Prine. He freely incorporates elements of rock, blues, funk, jam, Americana, country and folk music, all with a rhythm foundation that belies his south Louisiana upbringing, weaving a colorful tapestry of American roots music, via New Orleans.
