A Saint Louis native, and now a Chicago resident, Jordan Knecht is the kind of musician anyone can relate to. His timid but powerful croonings layered over samples played through a field recorder layered over modest but unique guitar-work haunt audiences. His lyrics remind me of a country western singer missing his home and family and friends. His second passion makes itself known in his self-recorded, self printed records. They are beautifully designed, thoughtfully folded, and intricately hand screen printed, every last one of them. (They are available through his MySpace). DIY indeed, Jordan makes beautiful music and equally beautiful records.
