Jordan Zevon was born on August 7, 1969 to Warren Zevon and Marylin ‘Tule’ Livingston. Growing up in an atmosphere that ate, drank, and slept music, it was no surprise that Jordan would be entrenched in that world. It is also no surprise that he grew into a proper musician in his own right. Jordan kicked around as a drummer in various bands like, The New Orignials, The Graduates and The iMPOSTERS for years. However, never known for long term commitments and since his dad was strongly encouraging him to go out on his own, Jordan left the groups behind to pursue...well, he wasn’t sure what direction he wanted to go, but he did continue to write songs.
Jordan’s talent shines on his debut record, Insides Out (New West Records / Ammal Records), on which you can tell Jordan has music in his blood, but also makes it clear that he had his own influences, outside of his dad’s world. The result is an intriguing record that certainly has the influence of his father in its marrow, but also has a nod towards the brainy songwriting prowess and pop to the likes of XTC, Elvis Costello and the Attractions, Harry Nilsson and Steely Dan.
