Songwriter-Composer-Lyricist-Director

Bio

Jordan Popky is a New York based singer/songwriter from Philadelphia. She grew up surrounded by musicians, in a world where family jam sessions were perfectly normal. When Jordan was gifted a Martin guitar for her 11th birthday, she immediately took to turning poetry into songs. As an avid reader and writer, she found herself enamored with both lyric writing and script writing, which ultimately lead to her involvement in musical theater writing. After years of immersing herself in music, Jordan pursued the opportunity to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston. She has had her work featured on stages both at Berklee and Emerson College, and has directed, produced, and stage managed multiple full-length musicals in Boston. Upon receiving a Bachelor of Music degree in Songwriting in 2016, she became the first graduating student to minor in Musical Theater Writing. 

Though writing has become her primary focus, Jordan is no stranger to performance. She has a substantial background in solo performance and has garnered experience singing new material for theatre workshops, demos, choirs, and backing vocals for multiple artists.

Amidst choral writing, vocal coaching, and contemporary songwriting, Jordan is currently writing book and lyrics for a full-length video game musical for high school students. She is very passionate about changing the world for the better through music, and she believes that reaching out to younger generations is the best way to positively impact our global future.
