Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


 Like the sound of a turntable needle slowly setting into the groove of one of his

favorite classic records, Jordan Miller touches that “sweet spot” emotion in his

songs. Being raised around early Sunday morning banjo riffs from his grandfather,

Jordan favored to the authentic sound of country and bluegrass music. “Blue

Moon of Kentucky, Dueling Banjos, and of course Foggy Mountain Breakdown

would all be ringing from my grandparent’s bedroom just about every Sunday

morning before we’d leave for church. My grandfather knew every note to a T.

 He never sang much, but he didn’t need to. You could make out the song from his

playing.” Early times like these seemed to have made quite the impact on Jordan’s

musical interests. 

 Shortly after picking up the guitar in high school, he began putting words to a

melody. “I remember watching a Neil Young interview when he was discussing

his songwriting tendencies. ‘Don’t chase the rabbit out the hole,’ is what he said. I

try to write by that saying. If the muse shows up, I’ll write something, but I’m not

going to force it.” After high school Jordan began playing open mics around

Tallahassee and the surrounding areas, while continuing to write songs. 

 Within a few years Jordan had played most local venues and gained quite the

following in the process. Jordan was invited to play in the 1st annual Island

Hopper Songwriters Festival in Fort Myers, Florida in 2014, where he performed

amongst other artists and songwriters such as, Kristian Bush (Sugarland),

Thompson Square, Dylan Altman (Tim McGraw, Jake Owen, Jason Aldean) Gary

Hannan (Joe Nichols, Montgomery Gentry) and Billy Montana (Lee Brice, Garth

Brooks, Sara Evans) to name a few. Jordan has also played in the 1st annual

FloGrown festival accompanying the Brandan James Band on guitar, opening for

acts such as Lockhart and Colt Ford. 

 Up until early 2016, Jordan had been playing solo and placing most of his efforts

behind the scenes songwriting in search of a publishing deal and getting songs cut

by other artists. After being introduced to a local drummer Chris Slagle and bassist

Keith Whitfield, Jordan had made the decision to start pushing his own songs by

the only person who knew them best. Himself. “I remember Chris and I became

friends and I would just come over to his house during the week. We’d BBQ, have

some beers, and play some music. Every now and again this guy Keith would

show up and just hang with us. Keith played a little guitar, but he wasn’t boastful

with it. At one point I just asked him if he’d be interested in playing bass. He said

yes and that was that.” 

 Jordan is currently in the process of recording a debut album and has already

released the first single music video for his song, “Whiskey.” Be sure to follow
