Jordan Jansen (born 12 March 1998) (Age 19) is an Australian pop singer from Gold Coast, Queensland.[1][2][3]

In May 2010, Hollywoodlife.com called Jansen "the latest pride and joy of Australia", following his appearances on Australia's Got Talent and sudden rise to popularity online.[4]

Jansen has been called "the new Bieber"[2] and has more than three quarters of a million followers on Twitter and a fan club of devotees who call themselves "Jordaneers".[1][5]

As of January 2015, his music video of the Leonard Cohen song "Hallelujah" has over 4.8 million views on YouTube.[6]

In 2011, Jansen was signed by American record label Kite Records (Toby Gad) and Australian label Sony Music Australia, with David Sonenberg as his manager.[7][5] In late 2014, they parted ways and Jansen announced his upcoming EP to be released in the fall of 2015.[8]

On 31 May 2016, his EP Invincible was released worldwide.[9]
