Both born and raised in NZ, Jordan’s parents are of Samoan descent. A hybrid of Avondale and Western Sydney herself – her roots are firmly planted in both Australia and New Zealand. Her music career until this point has been sporadic, some years spent opening for American acts Bobby Valentino and 112, others working as a full-time caregiver for her ill grandmother which left little time for music. Unsure what she wanted to do, she dabbled with putting things up on YouTube, Bebo even getting the attention of NZ artists Aaradhna on her SoundCloud mixes.
All of this isn’t surprising, considering music runs in Jordan’s blood. Soul and gospel surrounded her and have continued to inspire her to this day. Her dad, a bass-player for jazz band Revelation, were regulars on the Sydney gig circuit. The band and their families lived in one house together, so Jordan grew up around their rehearsals. Her parents have remained her biggest supporters – even encouraging her to quit her job in electronics to pursue music full-time. This ended up paying off when P-Money messaged her at end of 2017, after discovering her on SoundCloud. She bit the bullet, moved back to New Zealand and got in the studio.
