Who is Jordan McGraw?
Jordan McGraw is a musician and singer, perhaps best recognized as the son of Phil McGraw, the psychologist and popular TV personality who hosts his self-titled TV show “Dr. Phil”. Jordan was born under the Zodiac sign Libra on 21 September 1986, in Wichita Falls, Texas, USA. As of 2021, he is 35 years old, holds American nationality, and is currently living in Beverly Hills.
Early life and Family
While his father is a staple on daytime television, Jordan’s mother, Robin McGraw, doesn’t fall short when it comes to success in her chosen fields. She is a best-selling writer, author, and philanthropist, who gained instant success with her first book entitled “My Heart Choosing to Live with Passion and Purpose”. She also tried her luck as an entrepreneur and businesswoman, launching several projects and brands, including her “Robin McGraw Revelation Lifestyle Brand” and “Luxury Skincare Collection”.
Regarding his siblings, Jordan has a brother named Jay who followed in their mother’s footsteps, and launched a career as an author and entrepreneur, co-founding the production company with their father, Phil, entitled “Stage 29 Productions”.
Reportedly, growing up Jordan always displayed an interest in music, and later took guitar classes. Jordan has credited Phil for instilling in him this unique taste in music, as the latter would often play classic rock such as Led Zeppelin while driving him and his brother to school. When he was 15 years old, Jordan formed his first band entitled “The Upside”, and was the frontman and guitarist. However, the band’s glory was short-lived.
When it comes to his education, it’s believed that he holds a bachelor’s degree in Psychology.
Adamant in pursuing a career as a musician, in 2010 Jordan’s talent was recognized by the Organica Music Group who signed him as a primary songwriter, providing opportunities to hone his craft and collaborate with numerous popular artists such as Crystal Harris and Margo Rey. During the same year, he became a member of the band “City (Comma) State”, which consisted of Joana Pacitti, Justin Siegel, Ryan McCormack, and Drew Langan. While there were huge announcements regarding their debut album, it never saw the light of the day. They released an EP entitled “The First Last EP” and several singles, including “City of Dreams” and “Sleazy Sex Robots”, however, after just one year, the band officially announced that they’d broken up.
The following year, Jordan and several members from his previous band joined the alternative rock band “Stars in Stereo”, founded by the singer, guitarist and songwriter Rebecca Emily Hollcraft known as “BECCA”.

In an interview, Jordan described how the band came to be, saying: ‘We decided that everyone was a good fit to start on another project, and we began to search for a voice, a frontwoman. We found Bec, and she was absolutely perfect. Two days after we met, we went into the studio and started writing music together, and doing the whole thing.’
In 2013, they released their first eponymous album, “Stars in the Stereo”, preceded by the official lead single “Every Last Thing”. While promoting their album and other songs such as “The Broken” and “Violence”, they also performed as opening acts at various events for artists and bands such as “P.O.D”, “Maniac”, and “Empires”. In 2014, they put out their second album, “Leave Your Mark”, and an eponymous single. Despite achieving success and headlining for numerous popular bands such as Marilyn Manson, “Korn”, and “Rise Against”, in 2015 the band fell apart for unknown reasons.
“Hundred Handed” Band
However, in 2016, former members Jordan and Drew Langan joined forces with bass player Mat Black and formed the new pop band “Hundred Handed”. In the video “Hundred Handed- Behind the Band”, Jordan said: ‘I wanted to start a band, and this guy (Drew) was the first dude I called. We locked ourselves in the studio and listened to every song we would ever want to sound like, and then we came out with “Hundred Handed’. Additionally, while his previous bands were characterized by alternative rock and punk, this band’s musical direction was a clear transition to a mainstream pop sound.
In an interview, Jordan explained the inspiration behind the band’s name, disclosing that it was a reference to the creature from Greek and Roman Mythology called the Hundred Handed One.
It seemed that the band was doing well, and they released several singles including, “Love me Like the Weekend” and “Too Good”. However, following the previous pattern, this band also fell apart.
Solo Career and YouTube
In 2019, Jordan finally tried his luck on his own, releasing the single and an official music video for “Flexible” on his self-titled YouTube channel. The song attracted decent attention and popularity, which led to an unusual collaboration and remix of the song with the popular rapper T-Pain. During the same year, he recorded the song “Met at a Party” with the actress and “The Modern Family” star, Sarah Hyland.
Now officially dipping his toes in pop music, he followed it up with three other singles – “Bread and Butter”, “Lose Your Cool”, and “We Should Still be Friends”. He also released the music video for “We Should Still Be Friends”, which counts nearly five million views.

In 2017 he disclosed his romantic relationship with Marrisa Jack, the musician with whom he’d been friends since 2012, but the following year they broke up for unknown reasons. Later, he was linked to the actress Ragan Wallake, as he posted numerous photos with her to his Instagram account.
