His Music Career and Meteoric Rise to Fame

The Texas native first taught himself to play the guitar when he was just 15 years old. He subsequently started jamming with other pop-punk enthusiasts and created his first band, The Upside, in 2005. McGraw spent about five years as the lead vocalist and guitarist of The Upside before joining an alternative rock band, Stars in Stereo, in 2011.
Stars in Stereo managed to drop a few singles but did not make much headway. They disbanded in 2015 and the relentless McGraw launched another band, Hundred Handed, that same year. Hundred Handed enjoyed a decent three-year run during which they dropped a couple of singles. They also performed at several events, including on the Steve Harvey Show. The band later announced an indefinite hiatus in May 2018. Since then, Jordan McGraw has forged on with his solo career.

The EP featured tracks such as We Should Still Be Friends, Bread, and Butter, Lose Your Cool and Met at a Party, and was an overwhelming success. McGraw also opened for the Jonas Brothers during their Happiness Begins Tour of 2019. The tour saw him play in several North American cities, as well as European countries such as Germany, Spain, France, Italy, U.K., and Switzerland.
