Jacqueline Justice

“With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do,” wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson, and he might have been talking about Nashville guitarist and songwriter Jordan Tice. Over 15 years, the 33-year-old has released six albums as a solo artist or bandleader, and if you’re looking for predictable sounds, you’ve come to the wrong catalog. It’s all generally in acoustic roots, but the widely varied expressions suggest a restless mind.
