We are excited to welcome Jordan Tice back to The Holland’s stage on the heels of his brand new album Motivational Speakeasy to which The Fretboard Journal said “The whole album is incredible”.
On his 5th record, singer-songwriter/guitarist, Jordan Tice breaks it down to just his voice and acoustic guitar. He combines witty musings on life, relationships, and time with his deft finger-picking acoustic guitar skills for a fresh take on a classic medium. Produced by Kenneth Pattengale (of The Milk
Carton Kids), Motivational Speakeasy contains evidence of a variety of influences. From the classic Mississippi John Hurt style melodic blues, dissonant Tom Waits-like shuffle to the philosophical early Dylanesque chatter, Tice spins his influences into a variety of highly personal, well-crafted songs. Folk fans might recognize Jordan Tice as a member of the instrumental bluegrass supergroup, Hawktail as well as his sideman work with many other artists in the folk/bluegrass genre.
“”The free-wheeling Jordan Tice’s art basks in joyous spontaneity. For one as musically adept as him, the intricacies of his performance are best met by a feeling of irreverence. He meshes his artful intuition with an utterly human quintessence, jubilantly bearing warts and all through the delivery of lyrical wonders that can be as wistful and romantic as they may be earnest or unbecoming.”
