Jordana Glasser
Genghis Cohen
Hollywood

The Players: Jordana Glasser, keyboards, vocals; Chris Pinnick, guitar; Will MacGregor, bass.

Material: Jordana Glasser strings together an intriguing, at times whimsical, package for the singer/ songwriter crowd. Skirting around conventional song formats, Glasser lets her lyrics lead the way with lines like, "I like chasing butterflies in the Gemini sky." The verse-chorus-verse structure does pop up occasionally. But, she seems much more at home conveying the cathartic nature of her self-professed "painful songs," through a wealth of words set to moody piano melodies and sparse guitar picking.

Musicianship: Glasser wisely employs the seasoned skills of Pinnick and MacGregor. Achieving a loungy jazz feeling, Pinnick throws in a mix of clever runs and single-note leads that one imagines could dress up any combo of notes. And with MacGregor's solid low-end, the lack of percussion is easily overlooked. Of course, Glasser's vocals are front-and-center. A proficient keyboardist as well, her bluesy, passionate voice displays a range that is a treat.

Performance: While her focus was on heavy matters of the heart, Glasser's onstage demeanor could not have been more laid-back, and the balance worked. An impassioned artist, Glasser stepped back between songs to talk about Seinfeld , the weather, and a jealous pet cat. Then when the spotlight shifted back to her music, Glasser delivered. Not surprisingly, it was her more traditional tunes that garnered the most reaction, ending with an impromptu request for a song she hadn't played in years. Accordingly, she complied.

Summary: Jordana Glasser is another example of a talented songwriter drawing her own blueprint in the pop/folk scene. A delightful vocalist, Glasser's strength lies in her ability to write emotional lyrics that hit hard with folks who identify with her work. First-timers expecting standard fare may find her material challenging. A couple more hooks could go a long way in giving newbies a bit more to chomp on. Her talent deserves the attention.

Jordana's Art

Few musical artists dare to share as much of themselves as Jordana Glasser.
Meaningful messages, delivered through Jordana's soulful voice and
hauntingly playful piano, are rich in tone and prophetic in their imagery.
Her musical depth and poetic lyrics are featured on her debut album
"See you on Mars", and can be experienced live as she performs her original songs at clubs throughout Southern California.

Her Story:

Jordana started playing a little red toy piano at the age of 3yrs. And the rest is history! Although at 7 years old she took a few piano lessons focusing on Classical music, she unleashed her talent for expression. Her favorites include Bach, Tchaikovsky and Chopin.
Heavily influenced by the era of the songwriter/performer, her earliest musical memories are of hearing the likes
Of Carole King, Carly Simon, Burt Bacharach and The Carpenters, Cole Porter and George Gershwin waft through her childood home.
By the time she was 10 years old her Father introduced her to the music of Jackson Browne. It was then that she knew she wanted to be a songwriter. As a teenager her favorite artists included , Joni Mitchell, Janis Ian, Laura Nyro,
Linda Ronstadt, The Eagles and of course Jackson Browne.

While critics and admirers alike have listed her sound and style akin to Carole King, Carly Simon, Tori Amos and Sarah McLachlan, Jordana
Glasser's style and fervor are uniquely hers, and provide the listener with a personal tour through journeys of
love, loss and laughter. Her lyrics are semi-confessional, inspired by her own thoughts and feelings-speaking
volumes of the special bonds between people, of yearning, of soul searching and our place in time and history.

The Album:

"See you on Mars" is now available at Tower Records on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, Second Spin in
Sherman Oaks, Salzer's Records in Ventura and at Cdbaby.com/Jordana. For song clips and live performance schedules visit www.JordanaGlasser.com

The Gear:

Jordana Glasser performs with a Kurzweil Keyboard SP88X. Besides the sound of natural piano, her music includes traditional and tribal percussion beats ofter interwoven with a variety of subtle bass tones, orchestral arrangements and synthesized keyboards.

Reviews:

"Jordana's velvety, husky, smooth voice and flowing piano, beautiful and poignant lyrics, painted a picture of her
rich inner landscape and her performance felt personal, familiar and haunting... her songs are beautiful and you'll sing them all the way home..." ~All Access Magazine, 2003.

"From the emotional 'Man of my Dreams' to the soothing 'Rock Away' and the dreamy 'Churches', Jordana
sang from her heart and soul. At times her style is reminiscent of Carole King, Carly Simon and Tori Amos~ other times, on a path of her own devise." ~Sugarbuzz Hollywood Reporter, 2003.

Jordana is the new Madonna
This CD rocks the Casbah. "Rock Away" and "Don't Say My Name" are clearly the best songs on the Cd. Man of my Dreams is pretty cool too because it seems like a song that would be in a musical..it makes me think of phantom of the opera for some reason. At Last a King is a deep song that pulls on my heart strings. This song makes me think about deep issues and kings. I know I'm not supposed to talk about the artist but I feel it is necessary. This artist Jordana will be able to drop the last name soon enough. Her piano playing is beautiful, her voice is soothing, and her lyrics are heartfelt. I just saw her perform live tonight for the first time and her voice is so powerful I had to buy the CD immediately after the performance. Besides seeing her on mars, I'd like to see her on Earth at her own sold out concert.

A Beautiful CD
This is an awesome CD. Everything about it is so beautiful. I love "Rock Away," "See You on Mars" and "Churches." But every song in the CD is great. There isn't a bad song. Everyone should support this artist and buy her CDs and we'll be hearing her songs on the radio soon!

I love her melodies and chord changes.
The chord changes and melodies are so very different from anything I have ever heard.
I hear alot of modulating in and out of keys, as I am a musician myself.
Jordana seems to do this with ease, taking the song away from it's original place, going way out there in another key and then bringing it back home.
A wonderful journey. She is a beautiful songwriter and I highly recommend her album, 'See you on Mars"

I thought I had a favorite
Just when I think I have a favorite, I'll listen to the CD again and another song will win me over! I don't think it will be long before we hear snipets of her songs on the big screen. Winning hand is one of them and who can't fall in love with Reverie. Jordana is a strong writer, melodically and lyrically. I move through emotions, song by song, line by line. I have not listened to anyone in a long time that does that to me. I want more!!

Deeply personal, raw, from the heart songs that put you in that "place"
After hearing this album a few times, I grasped the songs and ideas Jordana is portraying more and more.
Each song becomes stonger and stonger the more you listen to it.
It reminds me of the days when I listen to Jackson Browne and Joni Mitchell.
I love this album and would recommend it highly.

In love
In love with this record!
It brings me back to the days when I was listening to Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, The Eagles and Jackson Browne. I really think Jordana is the only songwriter we have right now that writes like Carole King and Carly Simon and we need her. She is a 'quirky' songstress and I mean that in the best way... I love all those artists and I miss them and still listen to them.
My favorite songs so far is 'Man Of My Dreams'.
I absolutely hear that song in a 007 film.
Good work Jordana! I am looking forward to hearing your new work, get it out already!

Wow!
Wow! You have my vote for Governess! I just listened to the whole album. "Reverie" is incredible. The hair stood up all over my back and down my arms. Thankyou. "At Last a King" blew my doors. I listened to it over and over just now. I rarely do that.
