If you’ve turned on a TV, Radio or Streamed, you’ve most likely heard some of Marc Jordan’s hit songs! Marc was born in Brooklyn, NY, son of singer Charles Jordan, and grew up in Toronto, Canada. Jordan’s music career launched internationally in 1978 when he was signed to Warner Music in Los Angeles and began writing songs with some of the best in business.

In his forty plus year career he has been a hit solo artist (“Marina Del Rey”, “Survival”), a sought-after songwriter (“Rhythm of My Heart”), and in the last decade, he took up a paintbrush and became a visual artist. Trends come and go, but for an artist of Marc’s breadth, marrying his talent with inspiration has never been an issue. But his latest album Both Sides is something different. It’s a fulfillment of a long-held dream that has been waiting for the right moment to be realized. “I wanted to do an orchestral record. I wanted to sing some great songs I didn’t write. There are some beautiful, beautiful songs out there, and I guess I’m at the right point in my life to do them.”

Alyssa GiammariaAlyssa Giammaria is a Toronto based vocalist and composer. She is currently in her master’s at the University of Toronto for jazz voice performance.

Alyssa’s influences in her music range from jazz to classical to singer songwriter, and she enjoys blending genres to reflect her writing style.
