Award winning Fingerstyle guitarist and composer Jordan Brodie, is regarded as “one of the best young guitar players in Australia”. With his fine sense of showmanship and technical virtuosity, Jordan is well on his way to a flourishing solo career.
Based in Cairns, Jordan, a graduate of the Queensland Conservatorium of Music released his new album “In Good Company” in March 2018 through MGM distribution. The album explores elements of folk, jazz, and classical music and draws on old and new inspirations such as Emil Ernebro, Julian Lage, Ralph Towner and Tommy Emmanuel.
He is known to dazzle audiences with his fingerstyle guitar technique, with performance highlights including Tanks Arts Centre (Cairns), Tablelands Folk Festival (Yungaburra), Palm Creek Folk Festival (Townsville), Lions Bay House Concert (Vancouver), CastleHacket House (Galway) and performing with Michael Fix in Berlin, Germany. In 2018, Jordan toured Australia and performed in Canada, Ireland and Germany in support of his latest album. Jordan is currently recording his new album set for release in 2020. This will be followed by an extensive tour of Australia, New Zealand, Canada, UK and Europe. Don’t miss the opportunity to see this emerging master of the guitar.
