Jordan Tice, 21
Bluegrass Musician If there ever were a local boy, up-and-coming musician, with big city dreams of making it in the biz, it's Jordan Tice. The Arnold native and Towson University student (now in his final semester studying music composition) was hooked on bluegrass at an early age and has been progressing ever since. "My parents, Bob and Sue Tice, play bluegrass in the Annapolis Bluegrass Coalition. I started playing guitar in Church (Broadneck Evangelical Presbyterian in Arnold) and when I was 14, my folks got me hooked on bluegrass," he says. Since his prodigious days learning bluegrass from the likes of his parents, Tice also studied jazz guitar with renowned local musicians Tom Lagana and Rob Levit, and has since recorded and released several CDs and performed with bluegrass brethren Marty Raybon, Mike Auldridge, and Mark Shatz, among others. Tice has a gift and channels it successfully through his original music. "My inspirations are the moments when music gives me the willies. That out-of-body kinda thing, where the hair on the back of your neck stands up. Music taps into a deep part of people's psyches like nothing else can and I hope to make music that does that for the people who are willing to give it a chance. Locally, Tice performs regularly at 49 West in Annapolis and performs at many East Coast bluegrass festivals. He recently returned from a tour in Australia, where he performed several concerts and says, "I realized how every single person lives in a completely different world, which contains life lessons that I never would have stumbled upon. Just hearing someone else's take on something can open up a world of questions and opportunities on which to grow. As for his own plans to grow, Tice is focused on finishing his studies at Towson before embarking on a music career. "I've been talking to various booking agents to figure out the best way to get out there. Many of my friends and kindred musical spirits have recently moved to Boston so I'm most likely going to join them there. But New York City is also an option," he says.

Flatpicking Guitar Review

www.jordantice.com [cached]

In the liner notes Jordan said, "Mark's bass really makes this one stand out."When asked about his writing process, Jordan said that sometimes melodies just come to him and other times he will take a riff that is stuck in his head and try to develop it.The third cut on the CD, "Whatever Makes You Happy," was created from "a very simple riff repeated over simple chord changes."Jordan said."All of the players helped interpret it into something that sounds pretty cool."tune really does sound like Jordan threw a riff out and said, "OK guys, let's see what we can do with this," and all of them stepped up to the plate and knocked it out of the park.The variations that each musician bring to the simple theme create an interesting tune.The fourth cut, "Celia's Reel," written for Jordan's sister, seems to take off from where the last song left off.Jordan introduces a straight-forward melody on the guitar and then each musician gives us their interpretation.Jordan's guitar work on this tune is very clean and fluid and he continues with very clear and rich guitar playing on the tune that follows, a waltz called "Things Left Unsaid."On the sixth cut Jordan gives the first look at his ability to playa traditional fiddle tune with "Cuckoo's Nest."After hearing his solos here, there is no doubt that the boy can pick a fiddle tune with the best of them.We not only get to hear great tone and clean guitar playing, Jordan also proves that he can play an old standard, yet make it sound fresh with his innovative ideas.On the seventh track Jordan slows things down a bit with "Indian Summer," the first song he wrote.In the liner notes Jordan said, "I figured an album with these players needed one straight up slamming bluegrass breakdown."His description is right on.This one is up in high gear and Jordan shows that he can hang with these veterans on a fast-paced bluegrass burner.Thus far on this recording Jordan has demonstrated that he can play fiddle tunes, a bluegrass breakdown, new acoustic tunes, a waltz, a Celtic tune, and the slow pretty stuff.What's left?How about an old-time tune?Then, taking tradition up north, Jordan shows us that he can hang with more than just the American fiddle tune.By the time the final note of this cut rings out in the speakers, there is no doubt in the listener's mind that Jordan Tice is an incredibly talented and versatile guitar player.The future of acoustic guitar music is in great hands.After listening to the CD, the question on my mind was, "How does a young guy learn to play so well, with such taste, versatility, and creativeness?"Regarding his development as a guitar player Jordan said, "I listen to a lot of music.Jordan currently plays a Collings CJ guitar.Jordan Tice is now a student at Towson State University in Maryland.He is working towards a degree in jazz and commercial music performance.He is currently playing in a trio with Mike Munford on banjo and Patrick McAvinue on fiddle.He also has some dates scheduled with Gary Ferguson and is writing new tunes in preparation for the recording of a new CD.If you would like to know more about Jordan Tice, or order this great new CD, visit www.pxrec.com or www.jordantice.com. tablature for "Last Summer" by Jordan Tice

Jordan Tice
Jordan Tice - guitar Jordan Tice- Guitar Jordan Tice is a singular voice on the American roots music scene. Over the last ten years, he has developed a reputation as a unique and versatile guitarist and prolific composer of some of the most thoughtful and well-crafted tunes of his generation. Just like the greats of the past, Jordan has a voice and aesthetic that is all his own with which he filters the sounds and conventions of American Music into something unique. On his latest release, "Horse County", he also demonstrates a unique voice as a songwriter and singer in addition to his known guitar and tune-crafting skills. Born into a bluegrass family in Maryland, Jordan started early, playing bluegrass and fiddle tunes with some of the best players in the fertile mid-atlantic bluegrass scene. He also stayed busy playing rock and roll with his peers as well as studying jazz and classical guitar and composition in college. He released his first solo record of mostly original music at the age of 17 called "No Place Better" (2005) to critical acclaim within the bluegrass world. He quickly followed it up with "Long Story" (2007) a collection of original instrumentals that featured an all-star band of Noam Pikelny on banjo, Casey Driessen on fiddle, Andy Hall on dobro, and Mark Schatz on bass. The collection of adventurous yet deeply musical tunes solidified his reputation as being one of the most thoughtful and creatively driven personalities on the acoustic music scene and as a composer, player and bandleader capable of leading veteran musicians into uncharted waters. With his next release, "The Secret History" (2011), Jordan further pushed the limits of the absolute expressiveness of an acoustic ensemble. This outing, featuring Paul Kowert on bass and Simon Chrisman on hammered dulcimer, contained longer more through-composed pieces that despite their length never lost sight of the colorful hooks and beautiful and humorous sentiments that define Jordan's work. The development of Jordan's creative work as a solo artist is only one narrative that defines his career. Since first busting onto the scene, he has also been an active sideman with progressive bluegrass pioneers like Frank Wakefield, Mark Schatz and friends, and Tony Trischka, lending his guitar playing to their endeavors both on stage and in the studio. He also contributed his mandolin playing skills to the Dave Rawlings Machine record "Nashville Obsolete" (2015), toured with the Canadian folk group, The Duhks, and worked with actor/comedian Steve Martin on his re-imagining of the Shakespeare play "As You Like It" for New York City's "Shakespeare in the Park". Bridging the sideman and bandleader gap, Jordan is an active collaborator as well. This brings us to the present and Jordan's latest release, "Horse County". Horse County is not a real place and in fact there is nothing else called Horse County in the world. The record is Jordan's first to feature his singing and original songs in addition to his picking and tune-writing. The 11 tracks (6 songs and 5 instrumentals) combine many American folk music conventions with Jordan's eccentric harmonic, melodic, and lyrical sense. The instrumentals are some of Jordan's best. The title track is a raging bluegrass burner, "Craig" is a humorous take on the flat picking rags of Norman Blake and Doc Watson, and "A Cool Dog" and "Various Sauces" recall some of the achingly beautiful melodies and interesting harmonic turns we've come to expect from Jordan from his earlier instrumental releases. The solo guitar piece "Horse County Rag" is a manifestation of Jordan's recent interest in the rag-time guitar pieces of Blind Blake and Reverend Gary Davis; with his own spin on the genre of course. The record was recorded by guitarist Chris Eldridge who also, along with Jordan, co-produced the session. Jordan will be hitting the trail with a band to play the material from the record in 2016 so be sure to keep an eye out.
