Introducing Jordan Anthony, the 14 year old vocal powerhouse from Perth who captured the hearts of the Nation in this year’s season of The Voice Australia as the youngest finalist ever in the history of the series making it to the Top 4 in the series being mentored by Delta Goodrem.
Jordan was humming in tune to his parent’s favorite show tunes before he could talk and so it was clear from a very young age that Jordan had an ear for music, a passion for singing and the sensitivity to write meaningful lyrics. Also proficient on the piano, he writes his own songs drawing from personal experiences including issues of bullying and loss.
Jordan has been sharing his original music together with some popular favorites through busking in the city and other appearances around Perth. “Music for me is the ultimate form of expression. When people listen to my songs, I want them to relate and happy or sad know they are not alone.” Jordan started writing his own music aged 7 and with the funds from his busking and private gigs, in October 2018 he released his self-funded debut album ‘One Word’ featuring eight original songs.
Q & A’s with Jordan Anthony
Has music always been your first career choice?
I have always wanted to do music as my full time career. People ask me a lot of the time what my Plan B career is but to be honest, I don’t have one.
So what would you consider your biggest accomplishment to date?
My biggest accomplishment to date was reaching the Top 4 of The Voice Australia. I grew so much as a performer and learned so much about myself. Releasing my first album at 13 that I funded with my busking money was also a huge moment. The first time I put my music out there for all to listen to and enjoy.
Are you working on any new music right now?
I’m always writing music. My latest song is the one I am working on to sing at Junior Eurovision in November in Poland. It’s so exciting to be writing something that will be heard on the International stage.
Which artist would you love to collaborate with and why?
My dream is to collaborate with Ed Sheeran. He has had a huge impact on the way I write my music and his new Collaborations album is a vibe.
When will you feel like you’ve made it?
If I can make myself and other people happy with what I am doing as well as make a living and have a happy life from my music, that is when I will fulfill my dream as an artist.
