Jordan Hunt is a composer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist.
Classically trained, and drawing on his experiences as violinist in art-pop orchestra The Irrepressibles, Canadian band The Hidden Cameras and as musical companion to Olivia Chaney, he creates vivid, emotive music, weaving melodic ‘sad-boy pop’ and symphonic-inspired textures.
