Who Is JordanPharoah?

Born Jordan Pharoah Garrett-Williams August 5, 1991, in Northern California

Early Life

From an early age, I was exposed to the sounds of Motown, Stax, Funk, Blues, and Jazz, among other musical genres.  For the first 14 years of my life, I’ve attended the Monterey Jazz Festival and the Monterey Blues Festival.

Move to Los Angeles

My move to Los Angeles was so that I could hone my musical gifts at the very demanding Los Angeles County High School of the Arts (“LACHSA). While I was a student, I formed a band that performed throughout the Los Angeles area in various clubs such as Whisky A Go Go and on the University of Southern California (“USC”) campus.

Professionalism on demand - A Capella

In 2010, I was invited by one of my bandmates to audition for an A Capella new supergroup being formed that would further audition for the second season of the NBC show The Sing-Off.  We called ourselves The Backbeats. We won third place, which afforded me the opportunity to tour, and the group recorded their debut album released in early 2012

London

As of 2015, I became a student at Goldsmiths University of London majoring in their pop music program.

Solo Artist on the rise

In 2017, I was a co-writer and lead singer for designer APUJAN AW2017 in London Fashion Week: From Here To There - https://youtu.be/CeLKvHHkXVs: and again in 2018, APUJAN Spring Summer 2018 - https://youtu.be/cWTR6cQqLIE. Though London is my home base, I have and continues to, travel extensively to perform all over the world in places such as Greece, Latvia, France, Dubai, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, and the Virgin Islands.

WMF (What’s Good Muthafucka)

I’m the founding member of the production team WMF who have many projects in the pipeline. My sound as a solo artist borrows from my musical foundations but takes that foundation in a new exciting direction; mixing Neo Soul, R & B, Hip Hop and Jazz. My raw talent, undeniable skill, dependable professionalism, boundless creativity, and drive have me positioned to be a force to be reckoned with within the music industry.
