THE 21-year-old DJ and producer Jordie Ireland landed on the Australian airwaves and global electronic music radar just over a year ago with his sound-of-now debut single Take Cover.
Inspired by electronic dance pop princes Flume and Zedd, Ireland’s banger found plenty of love right out of the box on commercial radio and has had more than seven million streams — finding fans not only at home but in the US, UK and Japan.
He backed up that stellar introduction with One In A Million, which he co-wrote with Take Cover vocalist Ava Hayz.
Like many postmillennial music makers, Ireland (below) studied instruments from a young age: He was classically trained on piano and guitar by 11 and is also handy on the trumpet, drums and violin. Through his teens, he discovered artists such as Avicii and Tiesto who were taking electronic dance music into the pop mainstream.
“The most important objective for my music career is to ensure that my records continue to inspire and evoke feeling within my listeners,” he said. Ireland recently performed at the Vogue American Express Fashion’s Night Out and, with two hit singles, is a talent to watch in 2019. His dream of working overseas will be helped by an American Express Music Backers
