Jordi has been a feature performer for several benefit events for organizations such as The Gilda Radner Foundation, The Montreal Women's Assault Centre, Head and Hands, Native Centres and more recently played some tributes for The Sake of The Songs Series created by John Stuart for The Mile End Mission. Jordi has also enjoyed performing a few times at the music festival Suoni Per Il Popolo's "Popolo dans Le Parc".
Jordi also had the delightful experience of singing and playing in a Velvet Underground cover band conceptualized by Allan Lento in the last couple of years with many artists: Jackie Gallant, Jasa Baker, Allan Lento, Patrick Hutchison,Will Austin, Caroline Glass, Dave Lines, Ingrid Wissink, Sébastien Hell, John Stuart...
In 2001 Jordi was nominated for a Montreal Independent Music Award (M.I.M.I) as best Singer/Songwriter and her music has gained an abundance of airplay on radio stations across Canada and in Europe, particularly in Portugal, Croatia, Bosnia and France.
Jordi has actively been writing her own material for seventeen years. While jamming with friends in Montreal during the early 1990s, Grayson Walker introduced Jordi to the wonders of the accordion. This led to the duo Jordi and Grayson. Jordi sang and played accordion while Grayson Walker played harmonium and some accordion; thus sparking her career as a professional musician. Later came Jordi, Grayson and Bruce, and then Jordi, Grayson, Bruce and Joellen, and Jordi and The Sewing Machine (Grayson Walker and Lisa Gamble). Often it has been Jordi Rosen and Friends.
Jordi has since continued to evolve as an artist and enjoys singing and experimenting with a variety of instruments which inspire her creativity. She is currently playing with the Casio and loving the beats! Jordi has had fun playing with some friends such as Jackie Gallant, Will Austin and John Stuart in the last while. She has also dabbled in playing the autoharp, bowed psaltery, mini harp, and guitar.
