I’ve been singing since I could speak, I’ve always loved music. Ever since I was six years old I would make up tons of little songs in my journals, I still have them to this day. I learned my first instrument in the 5th grade when I decided that I wanted to do my school’s Talent Show— I was always a very shy kid and my mom knew that I would be terrified standing in front of a huge audience, so she taught me 4 simple chords on the ukulele. As the last act of the night, I played “Let it Be” by The Beatles and completely shocked everyone. The moment that everyone stood up cheering, I knew that music was what I wanted to do.
I started learning ukulele with my music teacher, Kirk Smart, and eventually got into the piano. When I was thirteen years old, we formed an all girl band with three of my friends. It was a lot of fun but not so easy to get four girls to commit to a show. When everyone else in the band was unavailable for a gig we had booked, I was forced out of the blue to do it on my own. Little did I know it would be such a blessing in disguise because that night started my solo career.
In June of 2017, I picked up a guitar and started messing around with it for the first time. About a month later, I wrote my debut single “Summer ’17” on guitar and then recorded and released it everywhere. It now has over 25,000 plays on Soundcloud. At the beginning of October, 2018, I released my debut album “Call My Name”.
I am currently sixteen years old and work at a local music shop in my hometown, Hanalei, Kauai, along with playing gigs. I am Jordy, and I hope you enjoy my music.
