History[edit | edit source]

Foundation and Sometimes Sky (2007)[edit | edit source]

Jordan Sweeney began playing music when he met Richard Galiguis in 2000 in high school. Jordan (drums) and Richard (guitar) formed a band called Cant Relate and served as the primary song writers in many bands such as Greenroom 2001-2002, Saving Sebastian 2003-2004, and Sky Walker 2004-2007. After sharing the stage and playing shows with such bands as Yellowcard, Craig's Brother, Inspection 12 and Rufio, Jordan became sick after he was diagnosed with a chronic illness called Ulcerative Colitis and it became extremely hard to travel, tour and play shows.[2] "When I was diagnosed, I had to research it because I had no idea what it was," said Jordan to his local newspaper. "I asked a lot of people, and they don't know about it. I decided to dedicate my whole musical career (to) raising awareness about this disease." [3] A few months after signing a record contract with a small indie label, Midnight Rekords, Sky Walker called it quits in 2007. Jordan continued to write music but this time used his pain and suffering as his focus. Sweeney decided to dedicate his whole musical career to raising awareness about this disease. He recorded his first album, Sometimes Sky in 2007. [4] Sweeney used YouTube to help spread his message across to people who were suffering around the world, which caught the eye of the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation.[5] Though ulcerative colitis prevents him from touring extensively, Sweeney has played gigs in Nashville, Tenn., Philadelphia, Austin, Texas, and Los Angeles, Cali., with The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation AKA (CCFA) Take Steps program whom has supported Sweeney on his tour. [6]
