Jordan Young

Born in Detroit, MI in 1978 music was always a continuous presence in Jordan's upbringing. His earliest musical influences came from his mother's vast record collection, which included classical, jazz and classic rock. He began to play drums at age ten, immediately falling in love with the instrument. As soon as he was good enough, he started playing in local rock, punk and heavy metal bands. His first experience playing jazz was in high school jazz band, where he was first chair all four years. His exposure to a variety styles at an early age helped him to become the versatile and creative musician he is today.
