Today we’d like to introduce you to Lexi Jordan. Them and their team share their story with us below:
Lexi Jordan is an up-and-coming artist in the New England Country-Pop music scene. In September 2016, she began her career by conquering her fear of performing at Faneuil Hall in Boston, Massachusetts. This led to a self-revolution far beyond Jordan ever imagined possible. Jordan continued on to performing at Indian Ranch, “New England’s Home of Country Music”, and The Big E, the sixth largest fair in the nation. In 2017, She accepted Female Vocalist of the Year by NECMO. Jordan was also was nominated for five 2020 Worcester Music Awards and accepted the award for “Best College Act”.
Based on her upbringing, she became captivated by country music. To her, it was never about catchy melodies. The meanings behind the lyrics and stories intertwined connected with her unlike anything else. It was her escape while experiencing all forms of emotions. She hopes to inspire others in sharing their stories and continue reminding them they do not have to be alone.
Currently, she balances her digital marketing studies at Bryant University with her music career. Her latest single, “Highway” was released in August 2021 on all popular streaming platforms. The song explains her struggle in following her dream despite the negative perceptions of others. Jordan plans to move to Nashville to continue inspiring others to embrace fear and chase something larger. She continues reminding herself, “a dream is only a dream until you find the courage and decide to chase it”.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Personally, I feel my biggest struggle was overcoming the fear of performing. For as long as I can remember, I would come home from school, immediately throw on my boom box, and start singing. I had daily concerts and even signed many of my own CD’s with Expo markers. From a very young age, I knew that singing and music was my biggest passion. However, my personal anxieties kept me from showcasing my passion until I was 16. In September 0f 2016, I performed for the first time at Faneuil Hall in Boston, Massachusetts.
After conquering this obstacle, I knew that I had to fully chase my dream. Though I am still human and experience doubts as we all do, the stage has become a home away from home. When I was little, I never would have believed that, in a few years, I would prove to myself that I can do it. This inspired “Highway” to be my first release because I feel that we all experience personal doubts at times. This song is symbolic of my dedication to following my own path and I hope to inspire others to do the same.
Overall, this journey has been both unexpected and incredible. Those 3 minutes of courage I gave myself back in 2016 helped me realize dreams aren’t as far away as we make them seem. All it takes is to showcase your art and help others relate in the process. As I finish up my degree at Bryant University, I am beyond thrilled to move to Nashville and continue furthering my career.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
My name is Lexi Jordan and I am a Country-Pop Singer/Songwriter. Growing up, I was raised in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts. I began listening to country music as far back as I can remember. It always allowed me to express parts of myself I couldn’t make sense of at the time. I believe this was part of the reason why I dreamed of making music for others. I wanted to be able to offer that like so many other country artists did for me.
At sixteen years old, I began performing live and pursuing music along with being a student. I am currently in my fourth year at Bryant University studying Digital Marketing and Psychology. I plan to move to Nashville after earning my degree to further my music career.
Overall, I am most proud of my first and latest project “Highway”. This project truly symbolizes my life currently and I feel many people can relate to it. We are all trying to find our own highway, so to speak. No matter what the dream is, chase it until you make it real.
Can you share something surprising about yourself?
Growing up, I was always interested in technology and digital art. However, I initially enrolled as an Accounting major my Freshman year of college. I wasn’t extremely passionate about it, but I enjoyed it to an extent. Soon, I realized a different path might be more beneficial. Then, during Sophomore year I learned about the Digital Marketing major. As I began promoting my music on socials as early as 2016, it was a perfect fit. I was eager to learn new information about digital marketing and improve my own brand in the process. As I finish up my senior year, I am grateful I had the opportunity to further my knowledge in this area. Though I did not study music specifically, digital marketing is widely used in my industry. I am excited to apply my knowledge for my journey in the future.
