Raised in Brisbane and based in London, Tokoroa-born Jordan Rakei is a talented songwriter, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. Over the last decade, he has toured his soulful groove-based sound extensively through Europe, the UK, North America, Australia, and South Africa.

Jordan Rakei was born in 1992 in Tokoroa, a Waikato town often associated with the forestry, timber, and paper industries. When he was three years old, his Cook Island Māori father and Pākehā mother relocated the family across the Tasman to Brisbane, Australia, where he lived for the next 19 years.
