Multi-award winning prolific Canadian songwriter and master of his craft Marc Jordan has been nominated for a 2020 JUNO Award.
His collection of chilled-out, romantic contemporary jazz arrangements Both Sides (True North Records) is up for Adult Contemporary Album of the Year.
With numerous ASCAP, JUNO, SOCAN and Smooth Jazz nods to his credit, Jordan’s extensive body of work has appeared on more than 35 million+ CDs worldwide. With a personal discography of 16 releases, his songwriting CV cites credits for and with the likes of Diana Ross, Chicago, Kansas, Manhattan Transfer, Kenny Loggins, Amanda Marshall, Bette Midler, Natalie Cole, Roch Voisine, Canadian Tenors, Shawn Colvin, Olivia Newton-John, Joe Cocker, Bonnie Raitt, Josh Groban, Cher, Rod Stewart — including the #1 hit “Rhythm of My Heart” — and wife, Amy Sky.
Always a fan of mid-20th century material, Both Sides features new Jordan originals like “The Nearness of You” and “What Are You Doing The Rest of Your Life” sprinkled in with Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” and the Lou Reid masterpiece, “Walk on the Wild Side.”
Recorded with the Prague Symphony and released in Spring 2019, Both Sides proved a tour de force through the classic American songbook alongside previously unreleased originals.
2020 Grammy Award winner Randy Brecker enters stage left on trumpet, and the nine-track collection serves as both a cool and modern showcase of some of Jordan’s best vocal performances yet.
Both Sides is available now.
