Having just turned 15 earlier this week, Jordan Anthony is a vocal powerhouse from Perth who captured the hearts of the nation in this year’s season of The Voice Australia as the youngest finalist ever in the history of the series. Jordan made the Top 4, proudly being mentored by coach Delta Goodrem. He then went on to represent Australia in Junior Eurovision 2019 in Poland last month, finishing in the top 10. As we prepare to say goodbye to 2019, check out what drives Jordan, as well as his plans and goals for his promising future ahead, in our interview below:
If your music was a person, what would their personality be like? Do you have any character that comes to mind?
If my music was a person, they would be someone that is very sensitive, searching for meaning. If it was a character, it would be the Marvel character Mantis from Guardians of the Galaxy as she has the ability to know what people are feeling and know exactly what they are thinking.
What’s the plan for the next 12 months?
The plan is to get back into the studio over the school holidays and release more music ASAP. Keep gigging around Perth and whatever opportunities that may arise.
What’s on your music bucket list?
Collaborating with Ed Sheeran is number 1 on my bucket list.
If you had to choose an album title as a quote to live by, which one would it be and why?
What’s Going On – Marvin Gaye
I always want to know what’s going on with the people and the world around me.
What is the most bizarre moment you’ve experienced during a performance?
When I was busking and a guy started having a full on conversation with me during my busking set. It was very amusing.
If you could perform in a concert with other musicians/bands of your choosing, who would they be?
Pentatonix, Ed Sheeran & Khalid
What’s on your Spotify playlist at the moment?
Pentatonix, Ed Sheeran, Khalid, Stormzy, Pink, Lewis Capaldi, Tones & I, Billie Eilish, Eminem… I could keep going all day.
What’s in your gig bag?
Audiofly IEMs, keyboard, iPad, microphone, vocalzone, water.
Why do you use Audiofly IEMs?
It’s an amazing product. The audio quality is unreal and they fit the ear exactly as I need them to. I’m really enjoying using Audiofly IEMs.
