Ever since he could remember, music has always been an important part of Jordy’s life. Not a day went by without listening to music, as his parents were big music lovers too and it wasn’t long before he too fell in love with the great sounds of the 70’s and 80’s.
At the age of 10, Jordy decided to learn an instrument. His sense of rhythm and his love for the bombastic sound drums made , led to an easy and quick decision. Since that day, he has was in love with his drumkit. As a classically trained drummer he learned to enjoy many styles: Classical, Jazz, Fusion, Rock, Heavy Metal, …. But nothing compared to the sound and feeling of the 80’s, which remained his primary focus.
Being inspired by many bands including: Iron Maiden, Guns ‘N’ Roses, AC/DC, Bon Jovi, Led Zeppelin, Jordy brings the thunder and booming sound of the drums to Ambush. Just like the way his favorite drummers did with their respective bands.
Or to say it in the words Mark Schulman once said to him: “If you want to bring something to a band as a drummer, bring POWER.”
So Jordy lives by the quote; “Drum loudly and carry big sticks”
