CountryUSA (Florida)

   

Oliver Jordan is from Miami, FL. He attended the world renowned Berklee College of Music, where he majored in Music Business/Management and Songwriting.

Oliver started playing the guitar at the age of 6 after being inspired by watching Led Zeppelin's famous concert DVD, "The Song Remains The Same". He was intrigued by the progressions and solo work that Led Zeppelin's guitarist, Jimmy Page, was able to improvise. He admired the "jams" that the band created, providing him the motivation to pick up the guitar and make it a serious practice.


From an early age Oliver not only played the guitar, but also performed in theatrical productions around South, FL. During his time in theatre, he began taking voice lessons and working to craft his stage presence. It was during this time that Oliver broke free from his shyness, and began admiring the stage.


Oliver went on to attend South Miami Middle School, as part of the Jazz Band Program. Oliver received the honor of being named the Jazz Band leader, and received an award for "Best Jazz Solo" at a school competition in Atlanta.


Upon graduating from Middle School, Oliver attended New World School of the Arts, a High School in Downtown, Miami, FL, where he was part of the Theatre Program. However, after having discovered his ability to merge playing the guitar with singing, Oliver began composing his own music and performing at local venues. It was after this discovery that he attended Berklee's 5 Week Summer Intensive Program, ultimately to be accepted into the school with a scholarship.


During his first summer off from college, Oliver moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where he gained more experience performing around the local scene, and began recording his first independently produced EP entitled, 'Ignite".

"Ignite" consists of three, all original compositions, in which Oliver is the sole writer and performer, with the exception of the drums and some backup vocals, of the EP.


Oliver is currently applying the knowledge that he acquired at Berklee College of Music to further his songwriting career while interning with the largest independent concert promotion company in South America, Move Concerts. During this internship, Oliver is working with his team to develop artist offer sheets, create accessible date bases for all current and future performances/offers, and is excited about the opportunity to continue developing his knowledge of the music industry.


Oliver's first EP, "Ignite", will be live in all digital stores on April 7th, 2017.
