Jordan Hunt is a composer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist.
On 16th March 2018 he released Long Lost EP on 12” vinyl. His debut single ‘Mother’ was premiered on Tom Robinson’s BBC Radio 6 Music show in late 2017, and the music video was premiered by Another Man, who admired his "mesmerising... spellbinding melodic pop sound”.
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.
He is a co-founder of Principle Six, and is Musical Director of the Theo Adams Company.
He studied composition at RNCM, RAM and RCM.
