Jordan Jansen (born 12 March 1998)[1][2] is an Australian pop singer from Gold Coast, Queensland.[3][4][5]

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.[6]

Jansen has been called "the new Bieber"[4] and has more than three quarters of a million followers on Twitter and a fan club of devotees who call themselves "Jordaneers".[3][7]

As of January 2015, his music video of the Leonard Cohen song "Hallelujah" has over 4.8 million views on YouTube.[8]

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.[9][7] In late 2014, they parted ways and Jansen announced his upcoming EP to be released this fall 2015 under new management, Union Entertainment Group, Inc.[10]

On 31 May 2016, his EP Invincible was released worldwide.[11]
