Turning Passion Into A Profession
JRDN (a.k.a. Jordan Croucher) is proof that you can turn your passion into a profession. Growing up with two passions, basketball and music, JRDN succeeded in both.
“I was 11 years old, but I found my two passions within seven or eight months apart and I knew I had a voice, but at a young age,” says JRDN.
“I had friends make fun of me, so I didn’t sing a lot, I just focused on basketball, not really thinking of making a career out of music.”
Little did he know, it gets better.
Here’s a look at the professional and personal growth of Juno-nominated, singer-songwriter, JRDN, beautifully captured by his cousin and filmmaker, Cazhhmere.
Let’s Get 2 Know JRDN
Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, on the beautiful east coast of Canada, JRDN started out as a basketball superstar playing for his university team at St. Francis Xavier and then turned professional, playing for France’s national team!
“I pursued music more while in university after I hooked up with a band who was studying in the grad department,” says JRDN. “They’d heard me sing at karaoke, national anthems for hockey playoffs and they wanted me to lead for the band. That is when the thought crossed my mind that one day, when the basketball stops, maybe try a hand at music singing.”
Believing in his music dreams, and with the right opportunities aligning for him, Jordan Croucher decided to put down the ball and picked up the mic.
Jordan the international basketball star was transformed into JRDN the award-winning, Halifax-born, Toronto-based R&B star who has the world still singing to his hit single U Can Have It All.
Throughout this journey, JRDN, released his official album, “IAMJRDN” opened for superstars like Rihanna and Ne-Yo to then having his own Canadian tour.
“IAMJRDN” is really a representation of just that: who I am, where I come from and all the things that have inspired me on the journey to who I am today.
Let’s Fast-forward to 2018,
Sometime people need to step back, reflect, redefine and come back stronger, this is true for our award-winning guest JRDN.
The R&B prodigy Jordan Croucher (aka JRDN) is now back with a new single called BETTER — a powerful life journey about change, growth and showing things do get better. o, going forward you can expect a new single plus an album, there’s ton of new music to be release in the new yea
Having that time away where I wasn’t able to put out music has helped me step back and figure out how I can come back and fit in with my own twist on what’s going on,” says JRDN.
Everything I’m ready to put out isn’t trying to fit any format. Now that I have this leeway to do what I want creatively, I’ve just been making music that I love.
