Serving the San Francisco Bay Area New Music Community

                    
Jordan Glenn
Drums
I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. My early years involved drawing cartoons and taking dance classes from my aunt. At the age of 12 music and movies took over. I studied classical percussion, jazz and made short movies with my friends during highschool. During college I played a lot of dinner-jazz gigs and recorded/toured in various rock bands.

In 2006 I relocated to the Bay Area and since then have been lucky enough to cross paths with Fred Frith, William Winant, Zeena Parkins, Roscoe Mitchell, Anantha Krishnan, Ben Goldberg, John Schott, Cory Wright, Aram Shelton, Steini Gunnarsson, Dominique Leone, Darren Johnston, Graham Connah, and the bands Jack O’ the Clock, Host Family, Efft, 20 Minute Loop, The Monolith, Beep!, tUnE-yArDs, Science Fiction, Evon, Arts & Sciences, and the Oakland Active Orchestra.

I also lead several groups, the main one being Wiener Kids. More info about me and other projects can be found at jordanglennmusic.com.
