- Matt's Music on TV & New Songs!
Hey all -
Just posting up a quick news update for all of you :)
First off, thanks for everyone who made it out to my show at Genghis Cohen on June 30th. It was a really fun night, and I'm sure I'll have more shows booked soon... so keep your eyes peeled for that.
Also, I'm excited to announce that a number of my songs were recently used on some pretty popular TV shows like Made (MTV), Candy Queen (TLC) and multiple episodes of What Not To Wear (TLC). Be sure to write and let me know if you hear my songs on any other shows!
And finally, here's a brand-new original song and YouTube video that I recently posted. It's a special tribute to legendary singer-songwriter Tom Waits. This one was inspired when I was listening to Waits' debut album "Closing Time" from 1973. I was thinking about all of the ways the music industry has changed since then, and that's what brought about this song. I really hope you enjoy it :)
I've got a brand-new original single coming out in the VERY near future, featuring a special guest - my good friend, Grammy-winning female rapper Whitney Peyton! Whitney is incredibly talented and I can't wait to share our collaboration with you guys.
Hope you're all having a great summer!

Hey all -
Recently uploaded a cover of the beautiful Jason Mraz song, "I Won't Give Up" as an entry to Perez Hilton's monthly "Can You Sing?" Cover Contest. I'm really excited to announce that my video was chosen as one of the top entries in the contest, and was featured on Perez Hilton's blog yesterday!
Here's what Perez had to say about my entry... (check out the full post at http://perez.ly/wAtiCU)
"[Matthew Jordan's] straightforward take on the song is a simple and beautiful! You can really tell in his voice that he CONNECTED with the song!"
