Hello Martin,
My name is Ben Jordan, I am an independent musician from Denver, Colorado. I am currently booking tours, to support my recent full length release "Ghosts Breathing Through our Strings". Actually Jessica was the one who told me about this site. I'm hoping she and I will be able to play over there together as we'll be overseas at the same time. I plan on being in Europe from the third week of may through the first week of July. I will be spending my first week in Ireland and beyond that I'm wide open, I'd love to come play for you.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, below you will find links to my myspace as well as for some "talent buyer only" tracks that have not yet made it onto official release.
Best regards,

Ben Jordan

Dank je wel Martin :-)
Gaaf joh de biep ! Zal best een aparte ervaring zijn. Hopelijk heb je lekker veel cd's verkocht ! Ik moest aan Eric denken omdat hij met Songwriters United toevallig zondag ook in Rotterdam was..
Gelukkig is het weer bijna weekend.. echt ik kom elke dag weer tijd te kort ! Van 't weekend weer ff leuke dingen doen, uit eten, met de meiden op stap en zondag muziekfeestje in België bij vrienden :-) En nog naar papa natuurlijk :-)

Fijn weekend alvast !!

Joh ! Was je met Eric on route ?? Ik wilde zondag naar Walhalla, maar ben naar m'n paps gegaan.. gaat heel slecht met 'm, hij vecht al bijna een jaar tegen kanker en leeft op 't moment puur op wilskracht. Volgens de artsen onmogelijk dat hij er nog is maar hij houdt vol :-) Gelukkig is hij nog helder en kunnen we nu nog een hoop praten :-)

I would love to open your show on April 23rd! Let me know if you need any promo material or cds. Looking forward to hearing from you again soon :)

Hi Martin,
I won't yet be in NL on April 23, but if we could play Oude Remise on May 16th, that would work. Is that Mother's Day? If so, that would be pretty funny, because it was Mother's Day the last time I played there. I already have us as confirmed for May 15th, was that not correct?

We urgently need a show on 15 november for 3 amazing singersongwriters performing together. They are playing in Gent, Belgium on 14 november so it should be in the neighbourhood of Belgium.
Contact me if you are interested: (USA) (Zweden) (Zweden)

For this tour only one American and two Swedish solo artists come together, rent a car and tour Europe. Three songwriters, one band. Get ready for a unique lo-fi orchestra and some serious instrument swapping!
Madamm is usually a four piece garage rock band from Gothenburg, but during this tour front figure Tammy Karlsson trades more for less and performs her songs with new life in a singer/songwriter manner.
Cedarwell is Erik Neave from Sheboygan, Wisconsin. He's a killer songwriter and has a voice of gold. His live shows contain everything from beautiful love songs to quirky sing-alongs. We all love it, and that's why he keeps coming back to play in Europe.
Winter Took His Life is Susanna Brandin from Gothenburg. A true singer/songwriter who started out at open mics in Boston in 2005. Her trademark is her light and soaring voice along with her fingerpicking guitar.
Don't miss this trio.

Hi Martin,
I'm starting to think about The Netherlands in spring. Any interest in sharing a show or two, or suggestions for places to play? I'm thinking April.
Groetjes, Karyn
