Growing up in Palm Beach, Florida, Jordan was constantly surrounded by music. From an early age, his every desire was to sing, and that is exactly what has been his life’s pursuit.
Just after high school, Jordan found himself living in Manhattan, studying musical theatre and acting at Circle in the Square Theatre School, where he trained and performed at the world famous Gershwin Theatre. He would go on to audition for broadway musicals and even receive an offer for a role in the current Broadway play, Rock of Ages. But after much thought, Jordan decided that musical theatre wasn’t where he wanted to be. He went on to study music at University of Mobile, performing around the globe with premier vocal group The Voices of Mobile. Upon graduation, one of Jordan’s dreams came full circle, when he was privileged to sing 1st tenor on the vocal line for the prestigious vocal group Truth.
A few years into Veritas’ journey, the guys were privileged to join Sandi Patty on tour. “It was a dream come true, I am so grateful to Sandi for allowing us to be a part. Learning from her every day was a masterclass experience that money can’t buy.” That year culminated in a debut at Carnegie Hall. That first performance would result in an invitation to return for an encore Carnegie performance. Jordan recalls singing Les Miserables “Bring Him Home” in Veritas’ encore show. “To be on that storied stage, a stones throw from Broadway, performing my favorite musical theatre song for a packed house…that was probably the most surreal moment of my career thus far… I don’t know how to top that, though I certainly am going to try…”
Although Jordan is trained in many styles including classical, musical theater, and pop, the style he tends to lean on most in Veritas is his rock style. Jordan confesses that “while some songs in Veritas’ repertoire require a legit classical sound, many songs benefit greatly from the texture that a pop/rock-style voice can bring to the table…I like to draw inspiration from my inner Freddie Mercury, Bon Jovi, and Steve Perry–these guys are legends that I have emulated since childhood. I just love the mix that happens when classical voices meet pop and rock. It makes for a mind blowing experience for us on stage, and it seems like our fans are walking away from the evening with a real sense of satisfaction and astonishment!”
“Singing with Veritas has been a surreal, and almost inexpressible, experience. To be able to do what you love for a living is such a blessing. I am honored to be sharing the stage with my friends, who just happen to be some of the most talented men in music today. I thank God every day for giving me the ability to do what I do…every day I am humbled…I don’t ever want to take it for granted.”
Jordan currently lives in Nashville with his beautiful wife Crystal and their 2 children Olivia and Oliver. “Being a husband and a father are the 2 most rewarding experiences in my life. God has truly blessed us with an amazingly funny and beautiful little girl in Olivia. And our youngest Oliver is about as handsome, creative, and determined as the day is long. All the good attributes that our kids have, they get from their amazing mother…I could never do this without her!”
