Jordi Geuens was born in 1985 in Antwerp, Belgium and has been touched by the magic of making music -- in particular playing the drums -- for as long as he can remember. From an early age he began assembling drum sets from Lego boxes, toy drums, furniture, pots and pans and playing them with his own signature wooden spoons.
When he was 5 he began playing a real drum set. He joined the local drum corps and soon after started taking lessons at the local music school. At the age of 18 he went on to study at the Pop Department of Codarts (Rotterdam Conservatory). He took lessons from Ad de Jong, Joost van Schaik, Hanz Deijnen, Dave van den Dries, Juan van Emmerloot and Hans Eijkenaar. During this period he was already an active musician and had the opportunity to play with Mira, Novastar and Postman.
Jordi has been a very active session player since graduating, playing all kinds of music, both in studio and live, on stage. He plays with many different musicians, something that has allowed him to broaden his horizons, both as a person and a professional musician.
He was an original member of Postman, Mira, Mings Pretty Heroes, Gustaph, Organtasy (with the great Hammond specialist Carlo de Wijs) and Lize Accoe. In addition to his involvement in these projects he has had the opportunity to play with artists such as Edsilia Rombley, Zap Mama, Brahim, Sandrine, Berget Lewis, Moiano, Candy Dulfer, Jeroen van der Boom, Leyers, Michiels & Soulsister and many more.
In addition to keeping an active recording and touring schedule, Jordi has also taught at Zoltan Kodaly Music School in Belgium.
Since 2011 Jordi has been touring throughout Europe with Belgium's latest sensation Selah Sue, whose debut album reached triple Platinum sales status in Belgium, Gold sales status in The Netherlands and double Platinum sales status in France. She has also received several notable awards such as Best Female Solo Artist (Belgian MIA awards 2010), the Prix Constantin (France, 2011) and the MIA Awards of Belgium (2011) for Best Selling Artist, Best Female Solo Artist, Best Album.
