Award-winning guitarist and composer, Jordan Brodie is regarded as one of the best young guitar players in Australia. With a fine sense of showmanship and technical virtuosity, Jordan is well on his way to a flourishing solo career with the release of his most recent album “Riff Raff” and his current tour with the Acoustic Guitar Spectacular.
The Acoustic Guitar Spectacular brings together a hand-picked lineup of unique and original virtuoso guitarists. Jordan will be joined on stage by two of his guitar heroes – internationally acclaimed performer Michael Fix and legendary Brisbane songwriter, composer and bandleader Jamie Clark.
Jordan fell in love with fingerstyle guitar by listening to guitar greats like Tommy Emmanuel, Chet Atkins and Bruce Mathiske. A graduate of the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, Jordan has been described as “the future of acoustic guitar playing in Australia” (ABS Radio) and “a potential successor to Tommy Emmanuel” (Rhythms Magazine).
Through his original solo tunes, Jordan shares the stories of his life and his community. Tunes like Willie Wagtail were penned during a particularly difficult time in his life, following the passing of his father a few years ago.
Another of Jordan’s songs – Rainstorm – won a Queensland Music Award and was written when he was just a child.
You can catch Jordan performing with The Acoustic Guitar Spectacular in Yandina, Maleny, Pomona, Eudlo and Mooloolaba this July. The Acoustic Guitar Spectacular is presented by local performing arts company Red Chair with the support of Arts Queensland through the Touring Queensland Fund.
