Weaving vocals into the organ-like resonances of the bowed double bass, Jordan Sand's solo performances have been called "impressive" (New York Times) and described as "ninja bass-playing" (Obsolete Media Objects). Ranging from “dynamic pop-inflected solo pieces” (The Strad) to long meditations on ringing dissonance, her music deals with sex, innocence, anxiety, ancient and anthropocene myth, the decay of monotheism, and the brainstem hymn.

An improviser and collaborator based in New York, Jordan’s eclectic performance record includes projects with the International Contemporary Ensemble and Peter Evans, frequent engagements within the klezmer and folk music world, and appearances on SNL, Carnegie Hall, and the NPR Tiny Desk Concert series. This is her Chicago debut, ahead of a performance at the 2019 Omaha Under the Radar Festival.
