Podcast Ep 12: Jordan West

Jordan West is a drummer, vocalist, and songwriter from Indiana currently based in Los Angeles, CA. Her move to LA was largely inspired by studio legend Bob Clearmountain, who randomly stumbled upon her singing and drumming at a rock club in Indiana. He told her she should make the move out to Los Angeles and that if she did, he would love to work with her. She took his advice and they recorded their first single together, “Blueberry Smoke”, featuring Andy Summers on guitar and mastered by Bob Ludwig. She is also in the process of finishing an EP with producer/engineer Mark Hornsby. The project was sponsored by Roland, Ludwig, Avid, and DPA mics, and an accompanying documentary about the process was filmed by Nigel Dick (set for release fall 2018). Jordan also works as a freelance studio and touring drummer/singer. She has recently performed and recorded with Judith Hill and Kailee Morgue. She also has her own ongoing series of Reverb.com lesson videos for drums and writes/records for television. Jordan is endorsed by Ludwig drums and Zildjian cymbals and is a clinician for Roland and BOSS.
