With a confidence reflecting an instrumental and compositional maturity that both belie his age and announce the arrival of an exceptional talent, Jordan Harvey exudes what guarantees to be a profoundly successful career. Born February 15th, 1992 and raised in Edinburgh Scotland, he showed a very keen interest in music from a very young age. Jordan started playing drums at the age of 13 due to his family raising him on a diet of Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Chaka Khan and Earth Wind and Fire amongst others.

Jordan began his musical career in London. Studying at one of the most reputable music schools in Europe, Tech Music School. After departing London in January 2012, Jordan picked up his first professional gig with Edinburgh Indie/Pop band “The Ok Social Club”. During the three year stint with the band he recorded drums and percussion on their two albums, “Nothing in Common” and “Baby Eat Your Heart Out”. The lead single, “The Shape Of Things To Come” from the first album was play-listed on BBC Radio 6 and aired on mainstream television shows such as Sunday Brunch (Channel 4), Hollyoaks and E4. Jordan toured extensively with the band playing several sold-out shows at incredible venues and festivals across the UK and Europe. TV Credits include BBC, E4, SkySports, Channel 4 and MTV Rocks.

Today Jordan Harvey is a highly recommended session drummer and has worked with many of the UK’s up and coming artists such as Callum Beattie (Universal), Mark Angels, Rebecca Shearing and E M I L I E. Jordan also tours and records with RUD records artist Dana Dixon. Previously, Jordan was also invited by New York City artist Andromeda Turee to play for the performance of “Kiss Me” at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

This year professionally has been an incredible year for Jordan. The first 8 weeks of the year were occupied with him starring as a contestant on Gary Barlow’s BBC One Saturday night prime time television show, “Let it Shine”. Here, Jordan showed his versatility by singing, dancing, drumming and acting which made him a fan favorite. Furthermore, in September Jordan decided to take a long trip to Nashville and is now playing for artists Mason Grace and Adaiha.
