Marcus Words & Jordan Isakson

When Marcus performs as a solo artist, he plays and sings cover songs, but not what one would expect; he makes them his own. He enunciates the words, which I appreciate, especially when they are songs whose lines are not clear by the original artist, example: Big Jet Airliner by Stevie Miller, you know what I’m talking about… Words has a certain staccato to his singing, and his voice range beautifully lights up a version of Unanswered Prayers by Garth Brooks with that high-low lilt making it sound as if he wrote it, instead of Brooks. Marcus describes how he feels about cover songs on his YouTube Music channel, “I don’t think the original artists would want to hear me play their songs exactly how they played it. I assume they would want to experience their artwork through a different medium.” // From the hills of the Missouri Ozark’s, Jordan Isakson brings a touch of tradition to modern country music. His rich and powerful vocal performance matched with sharp delivery and twang brings a nostalgic edge to the (record) table. Jordan has performed throughout Missouri for over a decade and has been featured in Lake Life Magazine (Nov/Dec ’22 Edition) and on the High Standards (Season 1) Podcast. Outside of his home state, the man from the Midwest has performed at the Stock Yards in Dallas/Fort Worth, TX, and at writers rounds in Nashville, TN. Having performed at more than 90 events in 2022, Jordan continues to build a following throughout the Midwest. In 2023, the country singer plans to release his debut record with Blackbird Studios in Nashville, TN, featuring songs that bring grit and twang back into the mix for modern country music.
