3RD PLACE WINNER – 2013 SMSWF BAND PLAYOFF
A singer, songwriter, and self-taught pianist & guitarist, Jordan Grassi is a Key West native who loves playing music just as much as she loves listening to it. Her first performances being karaoke nights in elementary school, she hasn’t stopped singing since. Jordan started casually writing around five years ago. That changed when she made the move from Florida to Canton, Georgia in 2010 with her family. Jordan then started to write more diligently and focused on making her music known. In February of 2011, Jordan went to an open mic night at the Cherokee Arts Center. After a great first response to her songs, she was hooked.
We have performed at many festivals, shows and events. Venues that we have booked include Six Flags, Atlantic Station, Electric Cowboy, Tootsies, Bluebird Cafe and Smiths Olde Bar. I play acoustic or full band.
We just recorded my first EP album in Nashville w/ producer, Ben Sesar. Even more exciting- Ben and a few other members of Brad Paisley’s band are playing on my EP!
Please check out our videos. We do cover and/ or original songs. We get a great response from people of all ages and I think we are really amazing!
Some of my accomplishments include winning Georgia Country’s Teen Artist of the Year Award! My band and I recently won 3rd place in the Smoky Mountains Songwriters Festival Band Playoff in Gatlinburg, TN! I also won the 2012 Texaco Country Showdown Local Competition for North Georgia. Last year I won 2nd place in the Texaco Country Showdown local competition in Atlanta. I was elected 2012’s Favorite Country Artist at Country Atlanta. My song “Across The Room” was elected Song of the Month for December and my song “Adjust My Sails” won song of the month for March. Many of my songs have aired on Atlanta’s 94.9 The Bull’s Radio Station. I was accepted into ASCAP’s Country Songwriter’s Workshop with Bonnie Baker in Nashville. I was also accepted into NSAI’s advanced song camp for two years now, where I had the opportunity to work with top songwriters.
