SORT BY Relevancy
After taking home the Rising Star Award at the 2014 Country Music Association of Ontario Awards, Jordan McIntosh continues to climb the ranks as one of Canada’s hottest new country stars. No stranger to the stage, the 19-year-old Ottawa native has toured with country stars Brett Kissel and, most recently, Emerson Drive. Additionally, he performed on the main stage at the third annual Boots and Hearts Festival in August. A top 6 finalist in the 2014 CCMA Discovery program, Jordan has been nominated for this year’s Rising Star Award at the Canadian Country Music Association Awards which will be held in Halifax (Sunday, September 13).
Jordan’s first influence was his older sister, Melissa. “My entire family is musical, but I idolized my sister. She started to sing before I did and, being younger, I wanted to do everything she did. That’s how I found out I could sing. I never really studied music. I just sang all the time. I know there’s a one in a million chance that you can make a career of your ability to sing. That’s always kept me focused, but I couldn’t do any of this without my family.”
JORDAN McINTOSH's 2013 single Grew Up In A Country Song relies heavily on his own experiences and plays out like a series of lyrical snapshots from a classic country tune; all drawn from his memories of growing up in the rural community of Carleton Place. “In Country music every song tells a different story and I wanted to write something that paid respect to where I’m from.”
Jordan is nominated for the Rising Star award at this year's Country Music Association of Ontario awards show which take place on May 26th. He'll also be performing at the awards show that night. Earlier this year, he was part of the Young Guns tour featuring Brett Kissell and One More Girl. He also has performances lined up at Manitoba’s Dauphin Country Fest, the Havelock Country Jamboree, PEI’s Cavendish Beach Music Festival and a return to Boots and Hearts in August.
He's proud to be part of the CCMA (Canadian Country Music Association) Discovery Program. The mandate of the program is to create a national program to support country music artists to reach their potential by providing educational, mentorship, networking, and exposure opportunities.
Jordan is signed to Big Star Recordings - the independent label run by Invictus Entertainment Group (Jim Cressman) and distributed by Universal Music Canada. His debut album with them - featuring the current single That Girl - is set for release in June 2014.
By now you've probably heard JORDAN MCINTOSH's songs Walk Away, Let Me Love You & Grew Up In A Country Song. And now you'll be hearing a lot of his brand new song That Girl. Music is his passion and he's pursuing it with 100% determination. “I obviously had a dream of this growing. That started to become a reality over the past year. That might seem quick but I've been working at this for about seven or eight years,” Jordan explains.“There was always that hope but I keep an open mind and stay grounded. There's a one-in-a-million chance that you'll make a career of your ability. It keeps you focused.” He has been busy lately touring across Canada with The Young Guns tour which stars Brett Kissel & One More Girl. Jordan’s first influence was his older sister, Melissa. “My entire family is musical, but I idolized my sister. She started to sing before I did and, being younger, I wanted to do everything she did.

Ottawa-based Country artist & teen hearthrob JORDAN MCINTOSH is making a big name for himself through great performances at various venues this summer and through his singles at radio - and his videos. By now you've probably heard Walk Away, Let Me Love You & his latest Grew Up In A Country Song. Music is his passion and he's pursuing it with 100% determination. “I obviously had a dream of this growing. That started to become a reality over the past year. That might seem quick but I've been working at this for about seven or eight years,” Jordan explains.“There was always that hope but I keep an open mind and stay grounded. There's a one-in-a-million chance that you'll make a career of your ability. It keeps you focused.” With initial influences like Carrie Underwood and Mariah Carey, he now credits the likes of Luke Bryan, Johnny Reid, Taylor Swift and Jason Aldean for further inspiring him. Still in his teens, Jordan is wearing 'two hats' - that of a student and that of an upcoming Country star. “It's difficult to balance everything,” he admits. “I've had to eliminate some things from my life to pursue this but everyone is so supportive. From family to my teachers, they're behind me with this. They afford me time to work on my music and improve in this career without sacrificing something as important as school.”
