Matt Jordan is on a mission. Following in the fingerprints of the New Orleans piano professors, he has been called upon to create a sound of his own. Based in Fairmont, West Virginia and traveling all over creation, he is doing what he does best: driving a hot rod piano like he stole it.
Two years on the road and 220 shows with Reverend Horton Heat honed him to a razor’s edge as a performer. With the Rev, Matt traveled to all 48 states, Canada, and Europe, melting faces and tearing down stages in the most professional way possible. He also toured with Lee Rocker as his pianist, rhythm guitarist and backup singer. On his own, his solo act ‘Matt’s Blues’ is a blue-collar barrelhouse of contrasts: both manic and sorrowful, held together with comic old blues and vaudeville banter. He sings his own songs and interprets archaic tunes from the obscure past, in some kind of love triangle between rockabilly, boogie-woogie, and New Orleans jazz.
