Jordan Harnum is a true son of Newfoundland. Born and raised in New Harbour, he learned the power and tradition of song and story from a young age. Jordan has always felt a deep spiritual connection with the act of performing on stage or on screen.
Jordan’s debut record earned him a nomination for Music NL’s Celtic Artist of the Year for 2018. The Boys Around The Bay was produced and partially cowritten by Glenn Simmons (The Fables, Wonderful Grand Band). The album earns Jordan over 1000 monthly listeners on Spotify with both the title track and “Feller From Fortune” are amassing over 13k plays each.
Returning to his rural Newfoundland roots, Jordan is currently the resident entertainer at The Captain's Pub in Twillingate for the summer of 2021. His contract will see him play over 100 2-hours shows from May 24th weekend through the end of the tourism season.
Through his residency, Jordan has been incubating a new collection of songs, including cowrites with Quote the Raven, Ronnie Power, Jeff Pittman, and Geoff Panting. He is working with St. John’s producer Robert Kelly to bring the project to life and plans to release his sophomore album in early 2022.
Jordan joined our shipboard cruises as a member of the onboard expedition team. After a month of sailing Canada’s wild coastlines with him, I applaud his charisma, his infectious enthusiasm, his obvious talent, and his passion for exploration. Jordan’s adventurous spirit, his appreciation of home, and his delight in the human spirit all shine through his music and performance. Dedicated, funny, and entertaining, Jordan’s music is sure to charm.
