Marc Jordan
  MARC JORDAN
Marc Jordan was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1949 as the son of Canadian singer Charles Jordan. Marc's farther returned to Toronto, so Marc grew up in Toronto. Marc signed with CBS Records (Canada) and released some single records in 1974 which did not sell well.
However, Gary Katz heard Marc's music and then he got his first U.S. deal with Warner Bros. Records in 1977. In 1978 His second release, Blue Desert, was produced by Jay Graydon and coincided with Marc's move to Los Angeles. This is one of AOR Masterpieces! Marc Jordan has been producing really good works constantly since then through 80's and 90's.
