Biography

Like most kids, Tom Jordan’s first memory of music is of the Wiggles and Hi-5……but unlike most kids, his first album was AC/DC at which point he decided he wanted to grow his hair and play guitar like Angus Young.

As a young singer Tom first began solo performances busking on Sydney’s Northern Beaches when he was nine, from which as a ten year old he was invited to participate in the 2004 Manly Youth Busking By The Sea Competition. He went on to win that competition in the under 13 division and then the open division of National Busking Competition both that year and subsequently in 2005 as well.

His songwriting career began at the tender age of 11 when he wrote a song in 6th grade class called “Back Home”. Tom says “it was about going shopping with Mum and not wanting to be there”. His dislike of shopping aside, the song won him awards for original composition in the Music and Arts Talent Search Teen Writers competition in early 2005.

By 2007 Tom was touring with Guy Sebastian on his national tours playing sold out shows all over Australia. He also played a series of shows with Diesel at the Vanguard in Sydney.

Other notable gigs include performing as the pre-match entertainment for a Sea Eagles home game in 2006 in front of a 17,000 strong crowd, the Rip Curl Pro Music Festival at Bell’s Beach, Layne Beachley’s annual gala charity event for the Layne Beachley Foundation with INXS and various high profile events during Australian Fashion Week 2006.
