Jordan Kristine Seamón or “J.K.” as she is known, is an American actress, singer, song-writer, author, artist and entrepreneur. Jordan first established herself as a singer-songwriter in early 2018, and is credited at age 16, for being the youngest artist to ever write and release 6 songs in 6 months after departing from her former girl group & becoming a solo artist. J.K.’s debut single, “Glo Up” and a remix feat. High Defynition initiated the journey, then the young polymath immediately peppered the next few months with the release of her “Untitled” mini-EP and followed it up with three headline tours, also having performed and been featured over 100 times in her short career.
The Atlanta-based, Philadelphia-born rising star catapulted into the film spotlight for her critically- revered breakthrough role in visionary film-maker, Luca Guadagnino’s television drama series ‘We Are Who We Are,’ which was released on HBO in September 2020. Her performance as Caitlin Poythress, a teenager navigating romance and sexuality on a military base, has been praised by the likes of the New York Times, and Vogue and is all the more remarkable for being her acting debut. Since then, she has also racked up impeccable style credentials, having been tapped for campaigns for the likes of Miu Miu and Bulgari.
While filming in Italy, Jordan began writing what would soon become her new, astonishing debut album “Identity Crisis”, a strikingly vivid snapshot of young adulthood in flux, which runs the gamut of emotions from loss and regret to the first bloom of love, as illustrated on the euphoric “thnx.”, which is the first track she wrote for the album. After Jordan flexed her considerable music muscle with the release of her debut album in 2020, she followed it up in 2021 with the release of her companion piece to this masterful project, a self-directed Documentary “The Making of Identity Crisis” (Click Here) which delves into the creation of the record (with some special guests including Kid Cudi, cast-mates of We Are Who We Are, featured artists and J.K. fans). The multi-hyphenate artist is an acclaimed actor, singer-songwriter, producer, visual artist, author and all-round entrepreneur and “Identity Crisis” is a rich and soulful exploration of psyche and self, seamlessly weaving genres and ideas into a perfect blend of R&B and pop, both timeless and forward-thinking.
A true multi-disciplinary young artist, J.K. drew all of the original cover art for all of her singles on “Identity Crisis”, the album cover art, and her previous singles. Jordan has also co-authored “Daddy’s Big Secret, Jordan Learns the Truth” a children’s book, with her father Jermaine. DBS is based on a true story and tells about the day that her Daddy told her his biggest secret, of his being dyslexic. Jordan also serves as the COO of Seamón Enterprises & Entertainment Co, and The Seamón Family Foundation, a non-profit organization which is committed to Social & Financial Investment in Arts & Culture, through youth, parental and community education and empowerment.
