Hometown: St. Paul, MN
Jordis was born in Massachusetts. Her father, originally from Tonga, Polynesia (an island in the South Pacific), is a musician, so the family (including her mother, brother and sister) moved around frequently. They settled in St. Paul, Minnesota when she was about 10-years-old.
She has performed in front of hundreds touring with her band The Fighting Tongs. The band performed in the concert tour "Riverfest," along with Twisted Sister, Anthrax, Sevendust and Damage Plan. In 2004, she was a contestant on CBS's "Star Search."'
When she was a senior in high school, she attended the Perpich Center for Arts Education where she lived in the dormitory and studied music.
Jordis is strongly influenced by Etta James but has also been influenced by Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles. A couple of her favorite CDs right now are The Very Best of Otis Redding and The Feeding by American Head Charge.
She plays some guitar.
Her birth date is August 6, 1982.
She looks interesting and I like her musical influences with the more blues/R&B stuff....but *gah!* she just seems so young! When I look at her birthdate and think that it's about the same time that INXS was becoming popular it just seems wierd to me.
she's a BABY! but yeah... has a good look.
I think she looks a little like a dark-haired Gwen Stefani.
now that you mention it, otis, i can see that. granted, upon further "investigation," she also bears a striking resemblance to chyna doll. :lol
OMG, Sher Chyna doll before that final makeover on Surreal this past season is SO spot on!! :lol I can see the Gwen in her eyes and forehead, but that chin is purely Chyna.
What's American Head Charge?? I've hreard of African Head Charge (tres cool, btw), but that was from about 20 years ago.
I thought she was great. So her dad, a musician, settled in St. Paul, Minnesota? Do you think he had any connection with Prince? :shrug
She was hot last night. She really started the show off right.
