Biography

About Jordi Rosen
**** Montreal-based Jordi Rosen is a Singer/Songwriter/Accordionist who has been fine tuning her art since early childhood and actively writing her own material for over a decade. She enjoyed the piano tremendously and singing when little, and was in the school choir. She had the pleasure of attending Kiwanis Music Festival a few times. Her brother Jason was always recording all sorts of people and shows on his reel to reel and this was Jordi's first recording experience. _________________________________________________________________ ****Jordi's eclectic choice of instruments thrives in her Dream Pop Love songs which celebrate Life and Spirituality. While jamming in Montreal with friends, Grayson Walker introduced Jordi to the wonders of accordion. This led to the duo Jordi and Grayson in which Grayson Walker played harmonium and accordion at times too! Eventually the duo became Jordi, Grayson and Bruce (Cawdron of Godspeed on drums and glockenspiel) and then Joellen (Housego of The Special Interest Group on fiddle). Later in time was Jordi and The Sewing Machine (Grayson using keyboard with beats and Lisa Gamble on junk percussion). All have done harmonies together. Also joining musical forces was Annabelle Chvostek and Carrie Haber, as well as several other lovely guests. Voici Jordi Rosen and Friends! _________________________________________________________________ **** In 2001 Jordi debuted her first CD entitled Madame Xavier. It has been described by critics as "ethereal, sweet illustrious sounds brimming with pop passion, evoking tender reminiscence in the listener." Jordi produced this album with the exception of a couple songs produced by the charming Rufus Wainwright (who also did some mixing and accompanying vocals). Her second CD entitled Lotus follows in her Dream Pop/Folk tradition with more string arrangements (Carrie Haber on Cello, Joellen returns on fiddle and Annabelle Chvostek on guitar). Jordi produced this album and the talented Annabelle Chvostek guest produced and mixed the song Do The Girls. The most recent mini disc 4 Songs For You was produced, recorded and mixed by Christian Richer who also played on it and Joellen. He wanted to create a more Motown sound for Jordi. The City Hums is off that album. Annabelle Chvostek recorded the song We Create The World We Live In. This was influenced by Jordi's Ojibway Indian roots. It touches on the love and need for nature in order for the body to heal. _________________________________________________________________ **** In 2001 Jordi was nominated as best Singer/Songwriter from Montreal's M.I.M.I. awards, and has gained much airplay on radio stations nationwide and some European cities. Presently Jordi is also playing a couple Casios and loving the beats! She has dabbled in playing the autoharp, bowed psaltery, the mini harp, guitar and plans to more in the future. _________________________________________________________________ **** Jordi performed and toured with Rufus Wainwright, Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Annabelle Chvostek and shared the stage with artists such as Antony and the Johnsons, The The, Martha Wainwright, and The Keys etc. _________________________________________________________________ **** A majority of Jordi's songs stem from her Intuitive abilities. She is a professional Channeller and reader of Tarot, Tea Leaves and Energy. Jordi also loves working with Animal Familiars and Guides to send out healing as well as through the music. **** Cds are available through scratchrecords.com and Cd Baby.

Lyrics

Crimson Kiss

Written By: Jordi Rosen

I accept the situation as it is
Needed you to start the crimson kiss
Thought you hadn't risen
And by then it was too late
Aphrodite put her rays on us
And I didn't want to wait

Chorus:
Into the night and early dawn
Into the night and early dawn
Heavenly child did it move you?
Moonstone man did it make you mad?
When naughtiness made me
When naughtiness made you

He accepts my intuition as it is
Cherry blossom walks
Such lovely lids
Ravished by exhaustion
And near miss
Dionysus brought his cup to me
Delighted by this

Chorus

To the lions I threw my heart
To the lions I threw my heart

Un tranche dans une carte
Une oeile pour une oeile
Un coeur pour un coeur
Donne moi ton coeur
Donne moi mon coeur (repeat)

The City Hums

Written By: Jordi Rosen

Sometimes I need a good dose of The City
Sometimes I need a good dose of you
Even when things don't look so pretty
The you know, it's up to you

Chorus:
The City hums with you
The City hums it's tune
The City hums
With you

When arriving at the station
When arriving at the station
Absent was my brother Jason
Hasten Jason, bring the basin
Ooops, plop, bring the mop

Chorus

After several trips to Brokeback Mountain
And now it seems
And now it seems
In the face of Love
What does gender mean?

Chorus

Repeat first verse with lots of hums
with you...

Palacial World

Written By: Jordi Rosen

They like to own The Moon
Living like we used to
In our Palacial World
We had something going on
We had something going on

My hand on your thigh
Talking late into the night
Sprawling deep into the high
I think I lived lying down
I think I lived lying down

Later in the streets
Me and my friend meet
May she love you girl
How couldn't she
Why shouldn't she
If it's destined you shall meet

It's time for Pure Love
He speaks the words I think of
Messenger to me
For him I hold the key
For me he holds the key

Can you feel that I've found Love?
Is that why you're abandoning?
As if it were up to me
Speak, speak, speak
Speak, speak, speak

Ahhh, ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh
Ahhh, ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh

They like to own The Moon
Living hard like we used to
In our Palacial World
We had something going on
We have something going on

Your hand on my thigh
Talking late into the night
Sprawling deep into the high
I think I'm living now
I'm living now

Thank you for saving yourself
Thank you for saving yourselves

Ahh... ahh.. ahh.. ahh ... ahh
