Tour stop includes Jilly’s in Akron
Ohio native Jordan Kirk is spending the month of July touring the state by motorcycle, with a recent stop at Jilly’s Music Room.
With this July marking the one year anniversary since he transitioned from fronting bands such as The Strawberry Jam and Beluga Fumes to performing as a solo singer-songwriter, he says, “I wanted to see my state in an entirely new way without the framing of car windows and previous experiences, without a utilitarian course. I wanted to see the reactions of Ohio’s diverse pockets of culture and people to a stranger and his music. The motorcycle has proven to be the perfect vehicle for this kind of journey.”
With a guitar on his back and CDs in his saddlebags, the sound of Jordan’s old Harley Sportster precedes him into each town. Kicking off his tour in Cleveland at The Beachland Ballroom, Jordan’s booked to perform in Akron (tonight), Canton, Columbus, Lima, Put-inBay, and his hometown of Vermilion before the end of July.
Amidst the chaos of touring, Jordan is working on his second album release set for Spring of 2016. Abundant Sunshine may be found on iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp and CDBaby.
