Strong and sensitive, Amanda Jordan is an independent country music artist who cares deeply about the world around her and is using her natural musical gifts to make smooth strides as an emerging international presence both in Canada and in Nashville. Originally from Smith Falls, Canada – just outside of Ottawa – Amanda Jordan was first spotted singing Patsy Cline’s “Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve Seen” when she was a mere 18 months old by her caregiver. By 5 years old, she was performing at events around Ottawa.
While pursuing a degree in the Singer- Songwriter Program at Carleton University, she performed for a national audience as a competitor in the 2015 Miss Teen Canada pageant before building a series of songwriting achievements through back-to-back top ten finishes in the 2016 and 2017 ole Red Dot on the Spot Songwriting Competitions, as well as a placement in the finals of the 2018 Canadian Songwriting Competition.
On stage, she was one of the winners of the Kick It with Kissel contest, which saw her open for Brett Kissel in 2018 in Sudbury, Ontario, and was one of eight wild cards to compete for the last spot in the Boots and Hearts Emerging Artist Showcase.
Even while her career continues to blossom, Amanda Jordan remains devoted to a number of social causes. She has written many songs for organizations close to her heart, such as “Carry You” for Boots 4 Pups, which trains service dogs for soldiers battling Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Away from country music, she is also a budding actress, having had two original songs used in the 2014 Lifetime film, “Killing Daddy” (AKA “My Father Must Die”), which she also appeared in. Amanda Jordan presently divides her time between Nashville – where she has been writing with the likes of Phil Barton, Jason Matthews, Daniel Ross, and Abram Dean – and Canada, where she has been recording with award-winning producer Jason Barry.
With new music having come to fruition in the form of 2019’s contemporary country single, “Driving in the Dark”, Amanda Jordan is ready put her unique spin on the international country music landscape – and make it count.
