From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Marc Jordan (born 1949 in New York, New York, U.S.A.), is a multi-genre Canadian musician known both as a songwriter and session musician for other artists, and as a singer in his own right.

Born in Brooklyn, the son of Canadian singer Charles Jordan, Marc grew up in a musical household in Toronto after his father returned to Canada. He studied filmmaking at Brock University, but he soon turned to music; he first came to public attention as a backup singer for Bobby Vee.

With the Canadian division of CBS Records, Jordan released some singles in 1974. They were not very successful themselves, but they impressed American music producer Gary Katz, and in 1977 Jordan reached a U.S. deal with Warner Bros. Records. This period with Warner would spawn the Canadian hit songs "Marina del Ray" and "Survival."

In the 1980s, Jordan was signed to Atlantic Records. For two years, he and Atlantic argued over who would produce his album for the label, Atlantic arguing that Jordan's choice, Paul Devilliers, did not have enough experience. Jordan left the label before he could work with Devilliers on Jordan's 1987 album-oriented rock record Talking Through Pictures (RCA).

Since 1993's Reckless Valentine (Warner), Jordan's new music has been much more jazz-oriented. Many of his older recordings have also been re-released.

Jordan is married to fellow singer-songwriter Amy Sky. They live in Toronto and cottage in the Muskokas with their two children.

Jordan and Sky are both national UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors for Canada.
