Early life and education
White was born in Cranford, New Jersey but his family moved to Pennsylvania around the age of 12 where he developed an interest in music in second grade at Hillside Avenue Elementary School. White moved with his family to Nazareth, Pennsylvania, in the Lehigh Valley region of the state, in close proximity to the Martin Guitar factory, where he learned to play guitar and classical piano. He graduated from Nazareth Area High School (along with TV star Kate Micucci) and went on to graduate from Northampton Community College and received a B.A. from East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania; and a M.S. from Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, in the field of psychological science. White credits several professors at Northampton Community College as having a profound effect on his motivation for continuing his education and for encouraging his song-writing.
White explained that some periods of depression experienced as a teenager led to composing original music, stating that music "saved me from being another statistic."  "I spent my summers as a teenager practicing my piano and my guitar while everyone else was outside partying, drinking, swimming, driving around, and having fun. I never really think I fit in with anything else other than music. I wasn't great at sports. It was just me and the music for a long time."  White says he was once asked to leave a graduate school lecture because he was writing lyrics instead of paying attention and was often questioned by adults and other authoritative figures about the direction of his life and a career when he was younger. He usually replied with "come find me in ten years." 
Music, lyrics and influences
White began playing keyboards in a class project led by his teacher in elementary school and was later inspired by his father's vinyl record collection. White says his musical influences "started with singer-songwriters out of the 1970s," referencing Van Morrison, Jackson Browne and Billy Joel. He also cites Guns N' Roses, Counting Crows, Tom Petty, The Beatles, Ritchie Valens and The Clash. His music is considered a mixture of alternative, acoustic-confessional pop-rock.
White spends much of his songwriting process fine-tuning lyrics and sometimes alters verses in the middle of performances. Much of the lyrical material deals with personal relationships, the divorce of his parents, "how people just stop talking the second things gets difficult and they'll walk away."  He adds, “I really like lyrics that are personal but sometimes they become broader to apply to others; although there’s a fine line between doing that and it being obvious. There's also an element of the September 11th attacks on our country in my lyrics writing. I woke up for my history class that morning and it felt like youth, not necessarily my own, but innocence was ending. I used to see the north tower from the window of my Grandmother's house in Bayonne, NJ every time we'd visit. Those are the things I write about. Moments that were incredibly special but we didn't realize it at the time. it kills me. "  White reportedly has gone a year or more between writing songs due to his commitment to the lyrics.
In a June 2011 article, White told The Philadelphia Daily News, "The songs are inspired from the life that I lead and the lives that I see. They are often about wounded people. People who are flawed and the flaws I find in myself; being caught in the grey area between what you want and what you can’t have. That’s not to say I can’t write about positive things, there’s an enormous element of faith and hope in what I write. I see both the beauty and heartache in people. Sometimes it's like saying, well, I really made a mess of things this time, but I can’t wait to see what happens. I’m extremely inspired and moved by the environment I’m in." 
White told Jukebox.com that lyrical inspiration stems from "the people that I see around me, those who have come and those who have gone, for better or worse. I’m a very observant person and see the dynamics of relationships between others."  "The lyrics are often about looking into the past and trying to make some sense of how things came to be now, trying to gauge where I'm at based on what's happened.” 
In September 2013 White told FOX News that his musical style is "a mix of the 1970's and 1990's, I know I kind of skipped the 1980's. That's what it is to me, that's what people tell me they hear. It's like a Jackson Browne meets Nirvana, very singer-songwriter oriented. It has an alternative vibe with a 1970's feel." 
Before a performance on NBC's "PA Live!" White said that the single "Maybe Amy", one of the more popular pieces was "just a misguided love song, how when you first meet someone there's a split between what you want to happen and what's actually will happen." 
White has performed as a solo artist and with several acts, the popular east-coast cover band The Fuzzy Bunny Slippers, the acoustic trio Foreplay  and alternative rock band, KineticBlu, which performs both original music and cover songs.
KineticBlu formed in Allentown, Pennsylvania in 2008 although inactive until the acoustic act Foreplay, in which White, guitarist Brian Kibler and vocalist Tara Crowe, had been performing with merged with drummer Rob Lilly. White was performing a solo show in the Lehigh Valley when he was approached by Lilly about a new band he was forming. The media had once dubbed KineticBlu "The Lehigh Valley's Sexiest Rock Band".
White has shared the stage and opened for national acts such as Third Eye Blind, John Mayer, Vertical Horizon, Bowling For Soup, Duncan Sheik, Sharon Little, Ryan Star, Amy Helm, Priscilla Ahn, Crystal Bowersox, Asher Roth, Rusted Root, Duncan Sheik and Katharine McPhee  and White advanced through the early rounds of American Idol during season 5 but later criticized the selection techniques of the show, responding in an interview that "I personally heard the producers pass on some of the greatest singers I had ever heard."  After being dismissed, White was offered and signed a management contract with Media Five Entertainment.
White performed for a sold-out audience on December 31, 2008 for Musikfest's "First Night in Bethlehem" annual New Year's Eve concert in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. In February 2010, White's original song "September" recorded with KineticBlu, was selected by Sony Music/Red Distribution for inclusion on a national release of hot new musical acts and is available on Amazon.com, iTunes, Rhapsody, and Napster. The song put the Pennsylvania-based band into the spotlight, and with over 1.5 million hits on Myspace it had clearly "struck a chord." Says White: “I wrote the song about September because that’s when summer comes to an end, even though chances are we’ll get to see another, it's possible we won’t.” 
White has performed at the Tunes at Twilight Festival in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and campaign fundraisers for U.S. Congressional Candidate Jake Towne for Pennsylvania's 15th District. During the campaign White criticized incumbent Charlie Dent for attempting to bar Towne from scheduled debates due to a controversial band that was scheduled to perform as well.
KineticBlu was named Alternative Addiction's "Next Big Thing" for the month off October 2010  and performed at the fifth annual Bethlehem Harvest and third annual Blue Mountain "Rock The Fall" Festivals  and in February 2011, performed at the 15th annual Millennium Music Conference & Showcase in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, an event which draws nearly 300 musical acts from across the country.
In May 2011, White performed at the Paul Robeson Arts Center in Princeton, New Jersey, which was televised on Comcast and Verizon FIOS and performed in August at Musikfest 2011 held annually in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. In April 2012, White had finished recording his first four song EP entitled "Four Songs"  which includes the tracks “Maybe Amy”, "Bloodshot", "Before I Go Out", and "No Promises." It was released in July 2012 and is available on iTunes, Amazon, the official website, http://JordanWhiteMusic.com and others. White has performed on morning news programs such as PHL17's "Eye Opener", FOX News in September, and major NBC, ABC and CBS affiliates morning news programs and talk shows in support of the "Four Songs" EP during the fall of 2013. On November 1, 2013, White appeared on ABC Good Day PA and talked about how writing and practicing music gave him an outlet to cope with depression. In an interview with Chester County Press, White remarked that he had "seen so many talented musicians just throw away their guitar and their dreams after being rejected once. I've been rejected more times than I can count but for me, it's all about refusing to stop."
During the summer of 2015, White signed with Flexitone Records and began recording the upcoming single "Crazy Girl" with Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum album selling producer David Ivory. (The Roots, Halestorm, Erykah Badu) White wrote on Twitter that [the song] "is powerful and is one of those gotta hear this one on headphones songs." Contributing to the recording included studio musicians who perform with Alicia Keyes, The Roots, and Patti LaBelle and the track was mastered by Grammy-award winner Tom Coyne who has worked with Taylor Swift, Pink, Beyoncé, and many others.
On the writing process, White said "I was playing a show a few years ago and after my set I went to hang at the bar and felt a little tap on my shoulder. I turned around to see this beautiful girl standing there, she worked there and wanted to talk to me. I was stunned at her beauty. It takes a lot for me to shut my big mouth, but looking at her sure did. She confessed she had wanted to talk to me all night but couldn't figure out what to say, which is ironic because we ended up talking for a couple hours. We decided to get together after her shift and although we discussed so much, we didn't talk about everything because when I walked in her front door, I heard a baby crying. She told me she lived with a roommate but she never mentioned anything about a baby, so I was confused until she said "oh that's my daughter" and rushed away to a bedroom. I didn't have a clue what was going on. Well, it turned out she had left out a few things during our conversation; that she had been married, was divorced, and had an infant daughter. It would have been fine with me, you know we all have a past, but I just couldn't understand how such a major subject didn't come up earlier. Maybe she wasn't ready to tell me, I don't know. Anyways this should have been my first warning sign but I was a 24-year old single guy, and she was a gorgeous girl who seemed to like me so I brushed it off. Things went well for a couple weeks and I really liked her, then it just tanked. Tanked incredibly and got out of hand. Police being called, people fighting, and since I was the guy she was with I got pulled in the middle of it. She was a lot of fun but had the worst type of personality for a guy like me, she wasn't doing it on purpose but when I was around her, all my insecurities and issues just got worse, and I knew it, but I couldn't help it. I had to be with her. So "Crazy Girl" became a song about getting involved with someone who is totally wrong for you, and you know it."
"Four Songs" Critical Reception
Overall, critical reviews of White's "Four Songs" has been mixed to positive and the lead single "Maybe Amy" was placed into rotation at hundreds of U.S. and U.K. radio stations. In an interview on Philadelphia radio he explained the EP was an "attempt to fuse the confessional singer-songwriter vibe stemming from Southern California during the 1970's with a 1990's alternative, full band sound.
Ashley McAteer of That Music Mag wrote that "White’s catchy lyrics really do not really draw attention but are easily stuck in your head, although he seems to be giving you just what he knows." 
Jennifer Shields from The Owl Mag described the EP as "taking music back to beautiful simplicity." 
Charles Minguez from One Minute Sound wrote that White's "Four Songs" kicks off with the track 'Maybe, Amy' which is a throwback to the sound of 90’s pop icons like Third Eye Blind and Matchbox 20; the EP then rolls into 'Bloodshot' and features heavier driven guitar riffs and a solo borrowed from the pages of Counting Crows. 'Before I Go Out', the third track, is probably the favorite and features subtle slide guitar licks and a quirky piano line. White undeniably has an ear for writing catchy, radio-friendly songs and is extremely talented, however his musical style is a bit outdated. Even when he is pushing out creativity, it still sounds as if he is trying too hard to emulate his influences. White's voice is clean and crisp, though it may not be the composition as much as the production to blame." 
Dustin Schoof of The Express Times wrote that "White goes from belting out a tender, folksy acoustic tune ("Maybe, Amy") to plugging in and cutting loose on "Bloodshot," highlighted by a smoking guitar lead. "Before I Go Out" is more of a roots rocker, complete with background harmonica. "No Promises" is a piano ballad that is heartfelt without veering into cheesy territory. It's a balanced and robust and shows off White's skills as a musician and songwriter.
Michael Phoenix of "The Hub" wrote that the lead single 'Maybe, Amy' "could have been from the TV shows "Saved By The Bell" or "California Dreams" but gave the rest of the album a positive review, stating that "White comes back, hitting you with the hard beat of 'Bloodshot', a great change up and a way to keep your attention, while 'Before I Go Out' is a good transition song in leading into the piano ballad 'No Promises' with references made to Philadelphia and the Jersey shore, leading you to feel the passion of the song from both the music and lyrics."
Sandy Lo of WHOA Magazine wrote that "White's music is certainly lyrically based which is a breath of fresh air nowadays with so much machinery and big beats thrown into songs." White also responded regarding his much publicized affair with American Idol that "the problem [with the show] is the judges dismissed the best singers but would then send a guy through wearing a clown costume." 
In February 2014, Philadelphia Weekly wrote a major cover story piece on White's life, his internet presence and his music. Author Max Ufberg wrote that "White speaks quickly, fumbling and rushing over his words like a man possessed."  The piece became the subject of controversy due to PW Weekly's focus on aspects of social media rather than the content of White's music when a former PW Weekly employee wrote a follow up article for City Paper, a rival publication (though far less influential in circulation numbers) criticizing Ufberg and other "young music journalists" as being "less and less confident in their own opinions leading to increasing coverage of buzz." The article was picked up by national news outlets such as The Huffington Post and in an article entitled "The Cult Of the Savvy" author Jason Linkins attempted to create a connection between the PW Weekly story on White and the media in general as those "who'd rather chase memes, divine the mystery of perceptions, and leave the judgment necessary to simply grasp facts and properly inform the public."  White responded on his blog and Twitter "I think the City Paper writer was trying to hurt Philadelphia Weekly because they hurt her letting her go. It seems like a conflict of interest to me and anyone's motives are suspect in this kind of situation."  Asked about the situation in his first live television appearance after the story broke White replied with "guys, keep writing all the articles you want." 
Richard Smallwood, Hard Rock Café, & Martin Guitar
White performed with Grammy-Award winner Richard Smallwood  and was given the highly coveted slot as residency performer at The Hard Rock Café in Philadelphia in February 2013, performing every Wednesday for the entire month. According to The Hard Rock Cafe, thousands of bands and musicians submit their material for booking considerations at their locations across the United States each year.
White returned to The Hard Rock Café for a second residency in November 2013 and performed "Before I Go Out", "Maybe Amy" and a new song titled "Therapy?" on the popular television program "Talk Philly" that airs daily on CBS-3 KYW-TV with hosts Ukee Washington and Pat Ciarrocchi to promote the performances. Washington asked White what his ultimate goal was; White responded with "Grammy. I'll set it right here on this table when you want me back." White also debuted two new songs; "High Road" and "12/26" which delved deeper lyrically into the subject matter that the EP "Four Songs" had previously only hinted at, while musically the new pieces contained a darker tone.
According White's official Facebook page White has also been dubbed a "Brand Ambassador" for Martin Guitar, in which he owns and plays several different models at shows.
White is known to frequently take part in fund raising events; he performed in January 2010 to benefit the victims of the 2010 Haiti earthquake with Wyclef Jean for The American Red Cross and in June 2010 at the "Songs For The Spill" concert in Allentown, Pennsylvania to assist the clean-up from the Deepwater Horizon BP oil disaster.
In 2011 White performed with both American Idol runner-ups Crystal Bowersox and Elliot Yamin at Stabler Arena to benefit juvenile diabetes, a disease which both Bowersox and Yamin suffer from. White also performed at several Red Cross events in the wake of Hurricane Sandy to benefit affected residents of New Jersey, the state in which he was born and spent part of his childhood.
Lehigh Valley Music & Other Awards and Recognition
In November 2007 White was a finalist in the Lehigh Valley Acoustic Competition and in 2008 KineticBlu was nominated for two Lehigh Valley Music Awards. In August 2010, White himself was nominated for three 2010 Lehigh Valley Music Awards for Best Songwriter, Best Lyricist, and Best Band Website, being chosen amongst 3,000 other fan and industry nominees. White performed at the awards ceremony on December 5, 2010 in Allentown, Pennsylvania  which was well received.
White was nominatted for two Mongtomery/Bucks County music awards and performed at the ceremony in November 2011; and for the third time was also nominated for two more Lehigh Valley Music Awards, Best Songwriter and Best Male Vocalist, in April 2012 returned to WFMZ-TV.
White was nominated for three Lehigh Valley Music Awards in fall of 2012 including Best Lyricist, Best Singer-Songwriter and Best Folk Band/Soloist and for Outstanding Songwriter in the 2012 Philadelphia music awards, and in November 2013 was again nominated for five Philadelphia Music Awards including Outstanding Performer, Outstanding Singer-Songwriter, Outstanding Male Vocalist, among others. White accompanied American Idol "top 100" contestants Tyler Grady and Tim Marchetto at the 2014 Lehigh Valley Music Awards on March 9, 2014. The show, broadcast on television and radio has grown significantly in scope, size, and has been steadily receiving more main stream media attention each year since its inception in the 1990s.
"The people who are successfully making a living playing music, the reason they got to that level is because they see music as a lifestyle," White told the Northeast Times, adding, "[This] requires talent, dedication and endurance"  also telling the Sun-Gazette that "there are a lot of setbacks and accomplishments. Often you take two steps forward and one step back. It's just how it goes." 
According to February 2015 article, White still has recurring bouts with depression but is undergoing treatment to "stop dwelling on the past and focus on the future" but admitted it "could be a life long battle." 
White is a Nissan racing enthusiast, and has custom Datsuns, Nissan Sentras and 200sx's that are powered by the SR20DE and SR20VE engines. He mentioned that if he wasn't a musician he "would love to work on race cars." White says that when he first purchased a brand new Chevrolet Corvette he soon returned it "because it just wasn't me." He is also a registered independent and animal lover, owning Chihuahuas, Dobermans, Siamese cats, and recently adopted a 2 lb chihuahua from a rescue. His mother also raises seeing-eye German Shepherds.
White also is a lifelong Philadelphia Phillies fan and in an interview with Mike Viso from "Through The Fence Baseball" when asked about the teams' 2008 World Series victory he replied "I'll always know exactly where I was when it happened. I had waited for it for 20 years. The 1993 World Series loss to the Blue Jays crushed me. I was just a little kid. I stood there in shock as I watched Joe Carter round the bases jumping up and down. The Phillies winning it all was something I thought I’d never see in my lifetime. When you break it down it really is just a game, but it was one of the few things not in my control I wanted to witness before I’m gone and I'm really thankful." 
White has also spoken about hearing loss in performing musicians, saying initially he did not use ear protection but added "it's something to think about more as I older and want to protect my senses. After shows, I'll have this ringing in my ear where it sounds like there's a television on." 
White claims to have developed a form of obsessive-compulsive disorder over the years, noting his tendency "to perform certain actions in sequences of even numbers" and says he is "obsessed with the number 4" and also has a fear of flying on airplanes, and reportedly has never flown. White graduated Nazareth Area High School along side personal friend, actress and musician Kate Micucci and currently lives in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA.
