I was born in Bastrop Louisiana, to the loving, wonderful parents, Dan and Martha Burks. I started singing before the age of 9. I asked my parents if I could learn to play the piano when I was 9 and that began the awesome career that has taken me to all parts of the US, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands. I moved to Nashville TN in 1995, began singing demos and performing around town, became a staff vocalist/ performer at the Nashville Country Showcase every Saturday nite before the Midnight Jamboree at the Texas Troubadour Theatre. I opened shows for T Graham Brown, Shanendoah, Clarence Carter and Tyler England, among others. I’ve had vocal training from Rene Grant Williams (former students: Garth, Tim, Faith, Lila McCann, many others). I, too, teach Vocal and Piano lessons. From 1999 until August of 2005,my band & I toured the US full time, working 40-45 weeks per year, performing at large dance clubs, casinos, festivals and cruise ships. I recorded 3 CD projects with Willow Wind Records producer/husband Larry Wilson. Those CDs can be heard/purchased at WWW.CDBABY.COM and also at WWW.WILLOWWINDPRODUCTIONS.COM/DANA_JORDAN.HTML . If you listen to the other artists on the WillowWind site, you will also hear me singing the background vocals on those projects. Finally, in August, 2005, it was time for a much needed change in the direction my career was going. I had traveled enough- I started gigging around Nashville, and in late November, took a house band gig at The Lighthouse in Hendersonville TN. The band I joined was called The Hit Men! We played Classic Rk, Oldies Rk, Blues, Country, R&B a nice variety of music for all ages. In February 2006, The Lighthouse closed its’ doors and we started booking dates in & around the Nashville area. Since I wasn’t a ""Hit MAN"", we changed the band’s name to Dana Jordan and Company, and although there have been some changes in band membership, we are still playing every weekend. In 2006, I recorded several projects with KMA records, in Madison TN. One of these recordings includes my first GOSPEL project since the early 1990s! Many of the songs from last year’s projects have charted in the top 20 overseas, for which I am very proud. If you have a moment to go & visit my personal website, WWW.DANAJORDANMUSIC.COM, you will hear other artists that I have produced, as we have been in the studio this past year working on their material. I wear many hats in the music business and I owe my talents to God. He has blessed me more than words can ever tell and He continues to be my Lighthouse every day of my life. If you are interested in recording with someone you can trust, feel free to give me a call or email me. I will be straightforward and honest with you about your future in the music biz and if you have the talent, we will make some awesome music together!
