BIOGRAPHY

Australian progressive folk/roots artist Jordan Mac has fast become known for his honest voice and virtuosic ability on the 12 and 6 stringed guitars, while laying Middle-Eastern and Celtic infused riffs over electronic beats and latin percussion.
 

Over his career he’s released two studio-records, toured internationally and taken out multiple songwriting and performance awards including the West Australian Blues/Roots Song of the Year for his track ‘High Tide’ that garnered the young artist airplay on local and national radio including Triple J.

After a mammoth couple of years, playing festivals such as Nannup, Fairbridge, Bridgetown Blues, Peak Festival and over 100 shows a year, including opening for Neil Finn (Crowded House), Angus & Julia Stone, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Nahko & Medicine for the People, and touring with Mat McHugh & The Beautiful Girls to name a few.

 Currently recording his forthcoming EP (Featuring members of Wolfmother & Dead Letter Circus) McRobbie now has his sights set on touring the record through Australia in 2019, followed by Europe and North America.

“Jordan Mac is an amazing contemporary finger-style guitarist. He has complete command of his instrument with intense guitar percussion, finger tapping, and lightning fast Celtic grooves! And this guy can sing! A great, strong, clear and articulate voice. His performance had 100% commitment with the intensity of tightly wound steel spring. He even added harmonica to the performance, truly a modern day one man band!”
