About the Jordan Carls Quartet:
The Jordan Carls Quartet, also known as House Blend, is the faculty band of Precedence Music Academy. Each member has toured and performed with Grammy winning artists like Paquito D’Rivera, Duke Daniels, the Carl Rosa Opera Company, Phil Collins, Bobby McFerrin, and many others.
Oddly enough, all four quartet members grew up in the Montrose area, left for the bright lights of the big cities, and came home again.
Davidson worked in New York City for 30 years, singing, performing and teaching at the Metropolitan Opera Company. Anderson also worked in New York for 30 years as a professional musician. As a scholar he completed his post-grad work at Juilliard, and has performed and toured with jazz greats and opera companies alike. Hansen is a relative newcomer to the music world, dedicating his considerable talent and energy – previously given to the business world – to performance over the last ten years.
And finally, Jordan Carls became a professional musician when he was only 13 years old, foregoing high school to attend college in the pursuit of music’s mysteries. He has performed and toured with many Grammy Award-winning artists, produced several albums, and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in music education.
Together the band plays more than 100 concerts annually. Despite their hectic performance and recording lives, they have all been teachers at heart, and are very happy to share their experience and hard-earned knowledge with their great students.
