Jordan McGraw is an American musician and lead guitarist who is also famous as the son of the renowned American psychologist, Dr. Phil. He understandably became a public personality by being the son of one of America’s most popular TV personalities but his choice of friends and career has further cemented his place as a famed person.
He has had a relatively short music career, still, in this brief period, Jordan has played in a few bands before venturing out on a solo career. It has not been an out and out success, but it has been enough to distinguish him from his uber-famous family.
Jordan Mcgraw’s Early Life and Road to Music
The singer was born into a family with brains for creativity and great intellectual insight on October 21, 1986. His mom, Robin McGraw, is a renowned author and his father, is the TV behemoth, Dr. Phil, known for his self-titled show. His parents, who have been married for more than four decades, raised him alongside his brother, Jay.
While every member of his family had taken a position in the world of entertainment, Jordan McGraw decided to do something more outside of his family’s path by becoming a musician. The journey started in his teenage years when he learned how to play the guitar.
Interestingly, his father inspired his interest and style of music. He admitted during an interview that his father would force him to listen to different types of music during school rides. The same happened in their house, and while everyone else was happy just to listen, he decided to one day play it.
At eighteen, he created his first band, The Upside. The group was not successful, but Jordan did not give up. He continued to learn, expanding his knowledge on the piano while improving his skill on the guitar.
Five years on, he gave professional music another try. He joined the company, Organica Music Group, and became a member of one of its bands, Stars In Stereo, as the lead guitarist.
His Music Career and Achievements
He joined Stars In Stereo in 2011 and was with the group as its lead guitarist until 2015 when it disbanded. Despite playing several venues and events, the band never got traction, and Jordan never got recognition for his ability.
That changed with his next band, Hundred Hundred. Jordan’s new band was a three-person group consisting of himself, Matt Black, and Drew Langan. They played the bass guitar and the drums, respectively.
The group embraced fame the very year it came to be with the release of their debut single; Love Me Like The Weekend. Two years after, they released other singles like Miss California, Too Good, Vibe, and Celebrate.
But Jordan McGraw is an ambitious man. A couple of years into their creation, the musician decided to pursue a solo career. He released his debut project, a self-titled EP, Jordan McGraw, in November 2019.
In the same year, he released a single, Met at a Party. He featured actress and singer, Sarah Hyland. In addition to its public release, they also performed it at the 2019 Teen Choice Awards, with a rapturous reception.
As a solo artist, Jordan McGraw’s career continues to grow, but he has recorded a couple of impressive achievements. He has opened for the Jonas Brothers’ on the Happiness Begins tour. Jordan has also performed on Steve Harvey, as a musical guest. There is also an appearance in an episode of the TV show, The Changeover, where he played himself, as part of efforts promoting his name and music.
He is Also Worth a Lot of Money
A recurring theme in the stories of upcoming music acts is the financial struggle. Sometimes, it inspired some of the best music ever created. Other times, it killed many dreams. Thanks to Jordan McGraw’s influential background that is one aspect of the journey, he does not have to experience.
His family’s stature in the entertainment business has helped open doors that may not have necessarily opened if he had a different last name. In turn, the musician has helped himself to a personal net worth of $6 million, free of the shackles of poverty and limited studio time.
The rest of his family boasts of substantial individual wealth too. His father, Dr. Phil, has an estimated net worth of $460 million, while his mother, Robin, is worth $40 million. His brother, who has established himself behind the scenes as an entertainment businessman, has a net worth of $12.5 million.
