Ever since he was little, Jordan Thompson says his dad had always encouraged him to play an instrument of some kind. He started strumming a guitar at the tender age of five and took up bass guitar when he was 14. About a year later, he began gigging in bars with the country and classic rock group Nowhere Road, Danny Thompson’s group at the time. Jordan says performing with his dad’s band is great, his dad taught him to be exactly the type base player he wanted to have in the band and admits that’s what makes him a better musician. The 21-year-old hopes to follow his music passion on a full-time basis one day. Meantime, along with his busy performing schedule, he also works as a mechanic.
