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.
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.
