By the time Keven Jordan hit his teens, he had already lived in Africa, Egypt, and Canada. He was a very creative young man, and interested in many forms of art, including music and acting. He taught himself to play the guitar to accompany his singing and songwriting abilities.

Jordan did the standard club-hopping gigs around Toronto before landing a deal with Sony Music Canada in 1990. A year later, he released three singles, "Just Another Day," "True Believers," and "No Sign of Rain." The latter was also the title of Jordan's debut album. With good reviews and the help of a couple of popular music videos, he walked away from the Juno Awards that year as the winner of the Most Promising Male Vocalist category.

In 1993, Keven Jordan completed a sophomore album, a self-titled offering that didn't do as well as many hoped. While working on it though, he became interested in another art form, the graphic art that was used to design the cover for the album. Within a few months, Jordan mostly gave up his solo singing career to focus his attention on photography and graphic art. He did keep at least a little of himself in the music world, doing some jingles and writing a few songs from time to time.
