Jordan St. Cyr is a Canadian Christian musician and songwriter. St. Cyr's 2021 song "Weary Traveler" was his first career No. 1 single. His self-titled debut album received a Juno Award in 2023.
St. Cyr grew up in Niverville, Manitoba and began playing music in his youth ministry. In a 2022 statement, he commented on his origins, saying, "Being from a small town from the middle of Canada and now to be kind of in the forefront of the Christian music industry in the U.S., it doesn't make sense in my mind but I'm so grateful."
In 2021, Billboard magazine named St. Cyr the No. 2 Top New Christian Artist. His 2021 song "Fires" became a Top 20 hit on Christian radio, and his 2021 song "Weary Traveler" was his first career No. 1 single. It reached the top position on several charts, including Christian Airplay, Adult Contemporary, and it became the song most played on Canadian Christian radio in 2022. St. Cyr said he wrote the song during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. In early 2022, he played at the March for Life in Washington, D.C. and he toured with Anne Wilson and Jeremy Camp. In November 2022, St. Cyr won six prizes at the GMA Canada Covenant Awards.
In 2023, St. Cyr received his first Juno Award nomination, which he subsequently won. The award was for his debut self-titled album. After receiving the nomination, St. Cyr remarked, "To finally have found my voice and the things I long to sing about and to be nominated in this way, it feels like God honouring this journey. I'm grateful to be a part of this group of artists."
St. Cyr is married and has two sons and two daughters. In February 2022, he and his family moved to Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
St. Cyr advocates for the pro-life movement.
