Singer, songwriter, guitarist, producer–I have lived in Long Beach for 20 years and love the diversity and integrity of our music scene, from Hip Hop to Country, and all genres in between. I record and perform with my band under the name 8 Good Fingers for my more Pop and Rock inclinations, but also write and sing Country and Americana songs under my given name, Kirk Jordan (I can’t escape my small-town Midwest roots). I have produced tracks for other Long Beach artists (Lovely Outlaws, Katie Jo, Nathan Douglas, Mustachio, etc.) in addition to my own original material. Most of all, I strive to be true to what comes out of my head, without the filter of commercialism, and try to emphasize melody and interesting lyrics. I have performed in venues large (Hollywood Bowl) and small (a street corner) and enjoy the connections equally.
