Minnie Jordan’s jazz-fiddling combines contemporary jazz with Texas country roots, and mixes bluegrass influences and classical training into the magic melting pot of modern improvisation She dives deep into stylistic authenticity in all the genres she is passionate about, while allowing her myriad influences to inspire brand-new sounds.
On her debut album “What Larks”, all the compositions are based on birdsongs–it is both an homage to the natural soundscapes that inspire her, and a call for action to protect the birds and ecosystems that continue to be threatened by climate change and environmental degradation.
