Matthew Jordan


There was never a time when Matthew Jordan didn't want to play piano and sing.

Taking lessons by the age of six, writing songs by twelve, gigging professionally by sixteen, and by twenty-one, a graduate of USC's prestigious Thornton School of Music.

With edgy rock piano grooves, radio-friendly hooks a la Gavin DeGraw, Sara Bareilles,& Ben Folds, and lyrics that evoke shades of Jason Mraz and Jackson Browne, Matthew's songs appeal to all different generations of music lovers.

Some know him from his starring role in the timeless Five For Fighting music video, "100 Years". And many have heard his music on shows such as MTV's "Made" and "True Life" or TLC's "Candy Queen" and "What Not To Wear", and NASCAR TV.

Jordan's most recent releases include his latest EP, Our Time, and the urban-pop single "Oxygen" featuring Grammy-winning rap artist Whitney Peyton.

In addition to his own music, Matthew Jordan frequently works with other artists and singers as a musical director, keyboard player, back-up vocalist and producer.

The long list of talented artists that MJ has worked and performed with includes Sabrina Carpenter (Hollywood Records), Kaya Stewart (Warner Bros Records; daughter of Dave Stewart from the Eurythmics), Nina & Randa (YouTube sensations) and Jaq Mackenzie (American Idol).

Most recently, Jordan wrapped a 6 week long, 35-show national tour playing keys and singing back-up as part of indie pop-rock band Rooney (with front-man Robert Schwartzman). The band's "Ultrasonic Summer Tour" sold out venues in 26 states including Lincoln Hall in Chicago, Bowery Ballroom in NYC, The Independent in San Francisco and The Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles.

MJ's list of TV & radio appearances includes iHeartRadio, The AV Club, KUTX Austin, "Fox and Friends", YTV's "Summer Beach Bash", "Radio Disney's Family Holiday", and the 2015 Radio Disney Music Awards.

In 2014, Matthew was welcomed into the Yamaha family as an officially endorsed artist. He's been playing Yamaha keyboards for over 15 years, and is thrilled to represent the brand, playing his CP4 stage piano and Motif XF-6 at many gigs across the country.
