NYC singer Jordan Bratton is definitely on the rise! At nine-years-old Jordan knew he was destined to be a star when he took his talents to Broadway.

Who is Jordan Bratton?
I was born in Miami. I started out going to church with my mom and dad every Sunday. And that’s how I found my belief in God. So I definitely speak out about my beliefs and experiences and how it’s affected me.
When did you discover music as one of your passions?
I started writing hooks when I was like 14. And after that I got into beats. I went on tour at 14 and was making beats and sleeping. When I returned home I started making music.
Music was my escape when we was in school. I didn’t have a lot of friends. I wasn’t the most popular. So that was all that I would do.
Do you remember the first beat you worked on?
I do but I’m not going to say it though.
So you are currently signed with RCA right?
Yea. So I started making music until I signed to a management company and my awesome team. Together we started doing showcases for RCA. After a while it just seemed right. Without me having to say anything they just showed me mad love. I looked at that more than anything else because I want to be able to like the people l I’m doing business with.
Who have you worked with so far?
I’ve worked with a few people. I actually worked on Bridget Kelly’s latest project. Top ten on iTunes so I am very pleased with that. I’m really trying to help other artist on the roster and get them going. Because I write and produce and it helps me realize the artist part of my brain.
You currently have a single titled ‘Danger’ ft. Fabolous. How was it like working with him?
He stopped by the studio I was working at. He played me some of his new stuff and I played him some of mines. And that’s how it went. You know he gave his opinion and I really respected what he was saying. He told me things may not take off right away it’s a process. And I respected that more. He showed me love and I showed him love. It was very organic.
What inspires you?
I’m inspired by the sunsets. I would drive home from the studio and I would get distracted by the sunlight. And I would pull over and watch the sunset. That and also movies. I would watch movies and be blown away.
Are you currently working on any future projects?
Right now, I’m currently working on the album. I have a title for the album but I don’t know when it’s coming out.
Are you going on tour?
Yes! I’m going on tour next month. It starts in Nashville and I am prepping for that.
