Jordan Pineda is a devoted singer-songwriter from Brisbane, Australia. Born from the secret scene of writing tunes in his bedroom about a girl, overtime, he has freed his musical skills, masterfully blending the styles of pop, folk and RnB into a smooth heartfelt art.
Having been influenced by a myriad of musicians like John Mayer to Jason Mraz, from Maroon 5 to Michael Buble; Jordan was left inspired and hungry to create. And it is through his warm mature style of vocals and intricate guitar playing that has taken Jordan to perform around many venues from Brisbane to the Gold Coast and all the way in between.
Raised in small regional mining towns across Queensland, Mikayla J was spoon-fed Australian country music from a young age, including music by Troy Cassar-Daley, Kasey Chambers and Lee Kernaghan. Her desire to connect and communicate through honest storytelling has already taken her music to Nashville, The Desert Harmony Festival in the Northern Territory and all the way to Papua New Guinea. Presenting with maturity beyond her years, Mikayla J has shared stages with a long list of country music royalty including Warren H. Williams, Catherine Britt, Graeme Connors, Melinda Schneider, Adam Harvey and Neill Murray. With a strong sense of social responsibility, Mikayla J is passionate about supporting her community. Most recently Mikayla travelled to Uluru to work alongside the Jimmy Little Foundation and perform and learn from the Mutitjulu community.
