Feeling a bit camera shy


Brian Jordan started playing the acoustic guitar at the age of 8. As a native of San Diego, CA and growing up mostly in Southern California, he was inspired by the various music he heard as a child, which included everything from Motown soul, British and American rock, straight ahead and groove jazz, Brazilian samba and bossa nova to classical music. At age 13 he enrolled in the school band and began playing drums, while simultaneously teaching himself how to play the bass and electric guitar. Also, at this time, Brian developed a passion for writing and recording music. This led to him studying music at UC Santa Barbara and on to a career as a professional musician.

In his early years as a musician, Brian began playing in an eclectic punk band, with one of his co-horts, Robert Walter, who later went on to “Greyboy Allstars” fame. After working crowds into a frenzy for over 5 years, this band gave way to the musicians moving on and finding their own way in the world of music. Brian then went on to tour with various world music artists. Upon returning home to San Diego, he began stirring up funky jams with Robert Walter, Chris Stillwell, Chuck Prada, Printz Board and Cochemea Gastelum. They called this jam session “Motherlode” and it became the impetus for the San Diego Groove Jazz scene which later spawned many projects such as “The Greyboy Allstars”, “Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe”, “Robert Walters 20th Congress” and even a revival of the original “Motherlode” project in 2005-2006.

As well as having been a part of “Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe”, led by Greyboy Allstars and ex-Lenny Kravitz sax-man, Karl Denson, since April of 1999 to present, Brian has currently been playing guitar with the “Fugees” songstress and emcee, Lauryn Hill, as well as making several appearances on the NBC television show, “Last Call with Carson Daly” with the house band, “Joe Firstman”.
