Tracking and Mixing Engineer who has worked with Kelly Clarkson, The Avett Brothers, Jason Derulo, Flogging Molly, Pepper and more!
Hi, I'm Jordon Silva! I'm a Tracking and Mixing Engineer based in Los Angeles, Ca. I've worked with many great producers including: Ryan Hewitt, Rick Rubin, Pharrell and more over the last 10 years of my career. I most recently recorded Kelly Clarkson for her new album "Meaning of Life" as well as mixed a new single for SoCal Reggae/Rock band Pepper. I'm currently doing preproduction for Sundown Superhero before going to record them in Barbados in January.
I always keep the artists vision for their music in mind while Tracking or Mixing and feel it's an important part of the process to discuss this before heading into the studio. I'm a big believer in getting the final sound for a record during the recording process by taking the time to sculpt the right sound in the control room. I find it elevates the artists performance to ensure we capture the best take and make the song the best it can be.
I love a huge sound with everything being audible within the mix; with lots of movement with fader rides to make the song exciting and building up all the way to the end. If I'm not rocking out and looking like an idiot while mixing behind the console, then it's not there yet!
Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

Professional, dedicated and enthusiastic approach. Great stuff.
Absolutely loved working with Jordan! He was very accommodating to my needs and turned my vision into a reality! This was my first time using sound better and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. He was very patience with me and helped in any way he could. I will definitely be working with Jordan again and I highly recommend!
Working with Jordan was great. Fast, friendly, funny but very very professional. He got me exactly what I needed at the exactly the right time. Excited to do more with him.
Jordan really helped bring my vision for the song to life with an amazing mix. Super easy to work with and can’t wait to send him some more material.
If you want to stand out from the crowd with the highest production value, use Jordan. Very professional, excellent to work with, quick turn around. He provides a very impressive service.
I was so happy with Jordan’s work that I couldn’t wait to get another song done. I had some feedback from the first mix, he went in and made every suggestion I had happen! Very stoked with the way the tracked turned out and can’t wait to get more tracks mixed with him. Highly recommended!
Jordan is a legend. He completely transformed my song and his communication was great! All around very stoked to have connected with Jordan. It’s incredible what a professional mix can do.
Thumbs up for this guy! He asks the right questions up front - requested the midi for bass and drums. That's pretty important for a mixing engineer to add value to songs. And song submitters should be flexible on that point. He successfully captured/mixed in the really good vocal tracks sent in by Candela Cibrian, a Soundbetter artist/singer. He improved the songs about 50 to 80% better from what I handed him.
Jordan is an expert at mixing. He creates a pro mix with amazing balance and polish. Not only that, but he is a pleasure to work with and always delivers the product in a timely manner and stays in good communication. Thanks again Jordan.
Very professional, great mix, timely turnaround. Highly recommend!
LEGENDARY!!!!!! Super professional!
Jordan will give your track the PRO sound you are looking for. His mixing is brilliant. He is cpable of delivering an amazing balance with beautiful bottom end, punch and power, and awesome space. Dont forget that polished finish, he gets it. I've had many mixes done by others I've found on Soundbetter, Jordans are by far the best. By FAR!
Brilliant work, thank you
Thank you for the awesome mix!
Jordans mixes are amazing. He was so professional and it shows in his work. The sound he creates brings the track to life and has a very well balanced and beautiful sound.
Jordon is great! He was fully dedicated to making sure we loved the end product... and we did! We were impressed by his work as recording engineer and especially his work as an editor/mixer. We would definitely recommend and work with him again! Thanks, Jordon!
Jordon is not only an amazing mix engineer, his producing skills are among the best there is! I trust him for his ideas and his work relationships with the artists he’s working with! For example in finishing a lead vocal track, the artist was lacking the emotion necessary to capture the listener. Next thing I knew, Jordon challenged him. The kind of challenge that would probably p_ss most folks off! The singer came back with a new found energy let’s say that translated to emotion...voila! Great track! Jordon is one of the best and a true professional!
