Juno Award-winning artist Sass Jordan has made a living singing, performing, writing and recording music internationally for the past thirty years. She is an internationally recognized singer/songwriter who has sold over one million CDs worldwide.
Winner of Billboard’s Best Female Rock Vocalist award, the bilingual Montrealer has toured and/or worked with many music heavyweights, including Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, Cheap Trick, Van Halen, Carlos Santana and Joe Cocker.
In 1992, Jordan performed a duet with Joe Cocker for the soundtrack of the motion picture The Bodyguard, starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner, which sold more than 27 million copies worldwide. Her songs have been featured on numerous television shows, including Melrose Place, Party Of Five, Baywatch and Knightrider.
Also an accomplished actress, she starred in the lead role of Janis Joplin in the off-Broadway hit, “Love Janis.” Jordan has guest starred on NBC’s Sisters and was featured in the Toronto and Winnipeg productions of “The Vagina Monologues.”
In 2003, she took on judging duties on the TV ratings blockbuster, Canadian Idol – the same year she shared the stage with The Rolling Stones, AC/DC and others as part of the history-making SARS relief concert in Toronto.
Her most recent CD, “From Dusk ‘Til Dawn”, features songs and sounds that reflect the atmosphere of the late 70’s Southern California scene. ‘I started out singing in Westmount Park, with my friends and a couple of acoustic guitars … passersby would stop and listen for a while, as we honed our skills in public’, says Sass. “Naturally, this type of vocal harmony and melodic sensibility is now a staple in my repertoire, and one I had a blast revisiting on this current recording”.
