Jordan’s debut album, No Dress Code is a collaboration of R&B/Soul music with an edge of Hip Hop. This record provides easy listening tracks that appeal to fans of all ages. The album has been two years in the making made up of Jordan’s best work to date. It features vocals by Classified and Jay Bizzy, and is produced in full by Classified (Luke Boyd). The Halifax born native was first inspired to sing when asked to be the lead singer of a university jazz band, Shades of Grove, while attending St. Francis Xavier University. Jordan then went on record in the studio with producer Trobiz (Tremayne Howe) which lead him to doing a lot of work with Halifax MC’s. He then released two mix tapes, Bars N Hooks (Volume 1 & 2 mixed by DJ IV) to the streets of Halifax, and received strong reviews. Additionally, Jordan gained recognition from the Africa Nova Scotian Music Awards, who nominated “Please Don’t Cry”, featuring Ghetto Child from Volume 1 for best rap recording.

Jordan has also gained national experience by competing in Canadian Idol and successfully making it to the top 70, out of 12,000 competitors. This gave him an opportunity to perform with Canada’s best talent, while gaining television exposure. Jordan was referred to the Much Music reality show Much 911, to meet and perform in front of producers from Capital Records, and Rap City. Since the release of Volume 1 in February 2004, Jordan has been constantly doing shows in Halifax and across Canada. He has opened for artists such as Gary Beals, Young Buck, Juelz Santana, Massari, and K-OS; Jordan was also featured recently at the South by South West music festival in Austin, Texas. Jordan has been on the tour circuit as well, completing two successful tours within the last seven months. In March of 2006 he toured Western Canada with Classified, Jay Bizzy, and the Mic Boyd and most recently just finished up a very successful Canadian National Tour in support of Classifieds new record “Hitch Hikin’ Music”, where he did 28 shows starting in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, and ended in Vancouver, BC.
