JORDAN BARNES

Born in New Plymouth, New Zealand, Jordan is recognised as an artistic all-rounder. He’s an award winning painter and is considered to be one of New Zealand’s top emerging artists. Jordan is also equally passionate about songwriting, releasing his debut Album on Lazy Bones Recordings in 2015, followed up by his sophomore album ‘Theories’ in 2017. Jordan derives inspiration for his painting and music from the same place, through social observations and personal relationships. He says that the process of creating a song or a painting is much the same.
