I am Jordan Officer, Blues and Jazz musician and songwriter from Montreal, Quebec. I am recording a Blues-influenced album in New York City, songs written and performed in the ambiance and energy of New York City with excellent New York musicians that I can't wait to start collaborating with.
I have been given the chance of a lifetime: the opportunity to live in an apartment in NYC for six months, explore the streets where some of the great Blues and Jazz musicians of all time have walked, participate in jam sessions, do my shows, and meet wonderfully talented people almost every time I step out the door.
I have a label in Montreal who are waiting for my next album, but who cannot help support a recording made outside of Canada, so I am producing this project on my own. This album is a turning point in my career, my debut album as a singer songwriter. I have a solid track record as a musician: one half of the Susie Arioli Band featuring Jordan Officer for over 12 years, a solo album of my Blues, Jazz and Country instrumentals produced 3 years ago, participation in several other projects, and public recognition as a jazz guitarist. I am also known for my musical instincts and my perseverance. This project will be a success, and I will make sure I reward those who believe in me. Thank you for your interest and your trust.
****The rewards are also available as gift: I will send a card (birthday or Christmas card) right away in which I will describe the gift to the recipient, personally written and signed by myself. Just don't forget to send a message and give me all the information I need.
Risks and challenges
I intend to make this album everything that it can be. I have lived with the Blues in my heart for the past 25 years and I have worked hard to be the best musician I can be. I have written and rewritten the songs for this album. I have polished them in several live shows to be sure that they fit with my vision and my psyche. I am playing my music with the instruments that I love. I have worked in the studio where I plan to record and I am confident of the sound I can expect from this studio. I have found amazing collaborators in a city that is bursting with talent. I have set my deadlines and expectations clearly. I have people who are ready to join my team in getting this album out there and heard. My biggest challenge is the financing of this recording. With your help I will succeed in making an amazing album. I look forward to sharing it with you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
