Old Flinderian Jordan Russell (Class of 2013) Launches Debut Single

Sydney-based singer and cellist Jordan Russell is an Old Flinderian who graduated with our Matthew Flinders Anglican College Class of 2013 and has since developed as a classically trained opera singer and completed her Psychology major. 

Now known as the artist Jordy Burns, her latest exciting news is the release of her debut single, Walls, on Spotify. Follow this link to listen to Jordy's stunning piece; we are sure she would love our College community’s support!  

During her time at Flinders, Jordan embraced every opportunity to explore her passion for music through singing and playing the cello and trumpet.  

She was supported through a Flinders Music Scholarship and became a valued member of our Flinders Music Program across six College bands, including the Chamber Voices, College Band, College Chorale, College String Orchestra, Stage Band and Wind Symphony.  

In her graduating year, Jordan received the College ‘Award for Commitment and Dedication to the Chorale Program’ as well as the ‘Dramatic Performance Award’. 

She also starred in Flinders productions, including the Secondary musicals Grease in 2011 and a leading role in Guys and Dolls in 2013.

Jordan was accepted into the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University's State Honours Ensemble Program (SHEP), an educational program for music students that helps extend and encourage their pursuit of musical excellence. 

in an article on music hub, Pilerates, Jordy’s debut song is described, and the video music clip shared, noting: “Opening with subtle, atmospheric strings and striking piano, Burns’ commanding voice soon enters the mix on this captivating cut of epic chamber pop as she explores the all too relatable concept of letting down one’s walls a little too early.”
