(Time for a new bio as of June 30th, 2009)

My name is Jordan Paul. I have been writing music since early 2004. Nothing much has ever come of it. In my younger years as a musician and songwriter I thought this may be something that I would do to make a living. But as the years past nothing really happened to get me to that point. I realized that I have more fun just doing it for fun. No pressure, no worries, just the music and the thoughts that it announces. So that is what my music will be for now. Just for fun. It's not meant to be good or enjoyed by everyone. It is just something I like to do when I have some free time.

I had an interest for guitar around the age of 12, I didn't really have any skill until the age of 14 when I brought my guitar to camp. I played simple little one string songs and was quite happy with what I had accomplished. I kept plucking away for the years to follow I learnt a few songs here and there but I still didn't have a passion for writing music and lyrics. I started to play more and the more fun I had with it the more I enjoyed it. I wrote about girls and other random things. My lyrical content to the songs were never complex or had any deep meaning. I just wrote down whatever came out of my head when I was playing the song.

I kept on writing, about my relationships and what goes along with that, and then that ended and my life went on I still thought about love and life and everything else to go with it so more songs came and I got better at guitar and tried to get better at singing. My music was a secret to most people, only some girls knew and random people off the internet. It wasn't till about the end of high school that I had the confidence or courage to tell more people about what I do in my spare time. It was great to get it out there and that led me to working on my music more and more. It also lead me to vocal lessons,choir, and being a musician for the church I have attended ever since I was little.

My writing has been influenced by girls, friends, family, and random acts. But my style has come from a list of artist that I really enjoy and in no particular order here they are. Brooke Annibale, Jason Mraz,John Mayer, Teddy Geiger, Michelle Branch, Beck, Jet, Ben Lee, Ben Harper, Ben Kweller, The Rocket Summer, Jack Johnson, The Spill Canvs, Jamie Cullum, Incubus, Our Lady Peace, Donavon Frankenrieter, Matt Wertz, Dashboard Confesionals, Sufjan Stevens, Jupiter Sunrise, Star Field, Motion City Soundtrack, Sia, David Usher, and many more.

The future of my music as it stands now will be. A few songs here and there. Maybe a burst of activity for a week and then nothing for 6 months or a year. But I will always be making music. I have graduated from the Ontario Institute of Audio Recording Technology with a Diploma in Audio Recording Technology. If you have any questions on anything audio related please ask.
