A Podcast Conversation With ... Marc Jordan & Amy Sky

This duo album has been a long time in the making. I often wonder why music couples rarely cross lines and record together. I get that separate careers stuff, yet when two voices are a perfect fit, it begs for an answer. In this FYI podcast Marc and Amy open about their careers and the pressures each place on themselves in crafting songs, the execution, the compatibility and final outcome.

Marc Jordan and Amy Sky – He Sang She Sang


This has been a long time in the making. I often wonder why music couples rarely cross lines and record together. I get that separate careers stuff, yet when two voices are a perfect fit, it begs for an answer. In this FYI podcast, Marc and Amy open about their careers and the pressures each place on themselves in crafting songs, the execution, the compatibility and final outcome. 

I can still see Amy out front on stage when the two of us played with Ronnie Hawkins in 1983 and her singing a sweet rendition of Love Me Tender and understanding this to be the roots of a long prosperous career. Living the dream! Both are now finally on the same page with an album of duets entitled He Sang She Sang.

More on Jordan and Sky

Marc Jordan and Amy Sky are a true power couple in the music community – both highly-acclaimed and commercially successful singer/songwriters who have enjoyed hits on their own as well as writing hits for such A-list artists as Rod Stewart, Diana Ross, Chicago, Olivia Newton-John, Heart, Reba McEntire, Joe Cocker, Bette Midler, Bonnie Raitt, Cher, Cyndi Lauper, and many more.

On He Sang She Sang, they unite to bring us elegant, passionate, and undeniably honest duet versions of a mix of classic songs and originals. From a gender twist in Baby It’s Cold Outside to timeless songs by Tom Petty (Free Falling), The Beach Boys (God Only Knows), Smokey Robinson (Ooh Baby Baby), Willie Nelson (You Were Always On My Mind), and Bonnie Raitt (You) – all given vibrant new life by two masterful vocalists. They're equally celebrated as songwriters, and the album includes five new Sky/Jordan compositions.
