Jordan Wood comes from the small town of Central City, Kentucky. At 16 years old he picked up his grandfather’s guitar and began his study of music. This lead him to the love of bluegrass and acoustic music he now holds.
Wood is a self taught guitarist and songwriter. At the age of 22 he began writing is own music drawing influences from John Prine, Larry Sparks, Red Allen and many more. In recent years he’s played on several festival stages performing his original works. Wood has also had the privilege to share stages with artists such as Mama Said String Band at both Terrapin Hill and Super Moon Festival, and was a solo performer at the inaugural First City Music Fest.
Wood is also involved in the local Owensboro, Kentucky music scene as well as the regional Bluegrass scene. He performs solo shows and serves as an opening act for both local and touring bands at various venues throughout the city. These local and touring artists include King’s Highway, The Gaslight Boys, Mama Said String Band, and more.
Currently, Jordan lends his time on the volunteer crew at the International Bluegrass Museum and Hall of Fame in Owensboro, Kentucky, as well as writes and performs for Kentucky Shine.
Wood’s musical goals are simple. To play the music he loves for, and with, people who share his passion and love of making good music. He hopes to further his knowledge of music, and make his own place in the music community.
