Jordan’s older brother, Johnny Brown, however, said his sibling’s uniqueness was apparent before adolescence.
“Lex just stands out, period. In all honesty, there’s nothing that is average about him. He isn’t one that says, ‘I’m going to follow the leader,’” Brown said. “Lex definitely beats to the rhythm of his own drum. It’s like putting an orange leaf on a black page.”
Jordan’s bloodline runs deep into North Carolina on his mother’s side — she was also born and raised in Raleigh. His father moved to the United States from Nigeria as an adult and instilled in Jordan a love for a wide range of music, including Latin and Caribbean music, and Brown always encouraged Jordan to take an interest in the arts as a child.
Jordan played the viola for years growing up but wasn’t able to read music until he was taught at Cary Academy. Beginning recording as a teenager under the name Lexicon, Jordan attended UNC as a Carolina Covenant scholar and continued to Miami Law after graduation. He’s since moved back to Raleigh in hopes of taking the February bar exam.
