Daniel Jordan is an acoustic artist who plays primarily as a solo act, but has plays in duos and trios frequently if it is requested. He plays songs that you hear on the radio today, yesterday and years ago, ranging from The Beatles to Lynyrd Skynyrd to Adele to Taylor Swift. He uses a looper to keep things interesting and to keep people dancing and having a good time. Daniel is a professional musician who puts on a professional show and guarantees satisfaction when booked at an venue.
He was born in Tulsa and raised by the humble hometown streets of Catoosa, Oklahoma, Daniel Jordan picked up his first acoustic guitar in high school and immediately fell in love with the sound. The single pluck of a string with his soon-to-be callused fingertips sent him into an overwhelming sense of joy and he knew from then on he would have a loving and intoxicating attraction towards acoustic music. Teaching himself how to play basic chord structures and this and that on the guitar, he then picked up the piano as a music education major at the University of Arkansas and added that to his bag of tricks.
After a year as a music education major at the University of Arkansas, Daniel decided to join the Army Reserves in 2009. He enlisted and was accepted into the 395th Army Reserve Band, based out of Mustang, Oklahoma. Daniel was primarily a euphonium player for a couple of years, but someone in the unit discovered his vocal abilities and started a pop/rock group called "LiveFire," with Daniel on lead vocals and rhythm guitar and now that is his primary job.
Daniel moved back from Fayetteville, Arkansas to his beloved hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma and is now in the physical therapist assistant program at Tulsa Community College. Music is his passion and he plays acoustic shows very frequently at restaurants, bars and other venues that request him.
"He got up on stage with a shy awkwardness and almost apologetic introduction about himself, then proceeded to blow the minds of the few people left hanging around at the bar.
With a voice pure, raw and often angelic, with a hint of the country raspiness that is so unique of the Oklahoma sound."
