Growing up in a small town in Minnesota, Jourdan Rystrom had big dreams for her life. Landing lead roles and winning awards in musicals around the Twin Cities since age 12, she knew her calling was to be writing, performing, and entertaining! Commentators described her singing as an “unmatchable ability to express herself through her music”.
After her musician father had a terrible accident leaving him with an anoxic brain injury, no short-term memory, and an inability to work, Jourdan resolved to continue on his legacy to bring hope and inspiration to others through music. Now more than ever she was determined to succeed. After graduating from high school, Jourdan moved cross-country with a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music. Since then, she's never looked back! Jourdan finished in 2011 with a Bachelor's of Music degree in Songwriting and tries to write one new song a day. She loves to co-write and collaborate with other people to get the best product possible - music that is going to move people, make them dance, and make them FEEL!
Jon Aldrich, Berklee's Songwriting professor says, "I was blown away by her abilities as a writer, arranger, producer, and a singer! This fine young woman seems to have every facet of a successful superstar career in perfect order! She thinks, writes, and acts like a seasoned professional. Even all of this aside, I have to admit the most impressive part of Jourdan's persona is her attitude. She is one of the nicest and friendliest people I've ever met here...and with no ego problem. She is simply preparing herself to properly attack the music business with all of the most effective weaponry she can muster. Her talent and personality will take her far."
After Berklee, Jourdan moved to Los Angeles to continue her career in songwriting and performing. You'll always seem to catch her at a band rehearsal, a performance with her a cappella group OVERHAUL, or fitness training her clients at Firm Body Evolution, a holistic gym in West Hollywood. In February 2013, Jourdan's first single release "What's Left to Say" topped Amazon Pop Singer-Songwriter charts at #1 in Hot New Releases and #10 in Best Sellers, also licensed three times on the #1 worldwide drama, The Bold and the Beautiful. Her second single release "Everything's Good", also premiered on The Bold and the Beautiful. Jourdan currently resides in Hollywood Hills with four guinea pigs and her best friend, Brad. She loves meeting new people and inspiring others on their journey to fulfillment - making sure every fan comment/tweet/message is responded to in some way - so be sure to follow her journey and drop her a line!
