biographical info

2014 JUNO nominated folk-singer Jordan Raycroft has captivated audiences of all ages across the country with his story telling, foot stomping melodies, and intimate performances. A two-time participant of VIA Rail's Artist On Board Program, Jordan has performed in train cars, theatres, and auditoriums throughout Canada. 

Named 2013's Folk Artist of the Year by the Niagara Music Awards, Jordan launched his singer-songwriter career four years ago, opening for JUNO nominee Peter Katz. Over one hundred shows and two demos later, April 2013 saw the release of Jordan's self-titled debut album. On top of a 2014 JUNO nomination, "Jordan Raycroft" has earned two 2013 GMA Canada Covenant Awards nominations including Folk/Roots Album of the Year

Jordan's most recent Western Canada Tour saw the addition of 53 concerts to his resume in just 47 days! To date, Raycroft has played over 200 cross-Canada dates, utilizing his platform to share his burden for the injustices of this world. As an International Justice Mission Canada and World Vision Canada artist partner, Jordan speaks on behalf of the voiceless victims of human trafficking - a passion reflected by his area of study. In February of 2014 Jordan graduated with a B.A.H in Criminal Justice & Public Policy from the University of Guelph - the place where his singer-songwriter career began.

Raycroft's songs tell stories of real-life experiences touching on themes of love, loss, justice and redemption. “I want to write music that stick with people,” says Raycroft. “When people hear my songs I want them to feel as though they were written specifically for them.” At only 22, Jordan Raycroft writes with the skills and expertise of a seasoned songwriter. 

With the addition of Aaron Brown (drums), Jay Keating (guitar), and Cody Poulton (bass), Raycroft looks forward to the future as they work to push the boundaries of their genre.
