With numerous ASCAP, JUNO, SOCAN and Smooth Jazz awards to his credit, Marc Jordan’s work has appeared on some 35 million+ albums. He’s written for and with Diana Ross, Chicago, Kenny Loggins, Bette Midler, Natalie Cole, Olivia Newton-John, Joe Cocker, Bonnie Raitt, Josh Groban, Cher, Rod Stewart — including the #1 hit, “Rhythm of My Heart” and currently for Stewart’s upcoming album — and wife, singer/songwriter Amy Sky.

Marc has just released his first album in six years called Both Sides with a collection of chilled out romantic contemporary jazz arrangements of popular songs by some of his favourite composers, along with previously unreleased original compositions.

We had a lovely conversation about songwriting, the music industry and his other creative outlet of painting.

I was fascinated talking to Marc and could listen to him for hours, however, I kinda ran out of things to ask him. Maybe because I'm not a songwriter but a fan so I would ask what is Olivia Newton-John like? and that's not the show, lol. I’d love to have him on again sometime and maybe I can invite questions from you aspiring songwriters.
