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!
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

Jordon took a lot of care in helping me achieve my vision for the songs. I especially appreciated the live mixing sessions which were fun and productive. I love the mixes he did - my songs have come alive under his artistry with new dimensions and a fullness I didn’t realize was missing. I get goosebumps listening to the songs now and can’t wait for others to hear them. Thank you, Jordon!

Jordan is world class. His work is professional and delivers exactly what he says he will do.
I had a track that i was nurturing for 2 years, it meant the world to me and when the time came to finally wrap it up, i needed a high level mixing engineer and i found that in Jordon, he absolutely delivered.
He wanted to know the story behind the song and made it personal!
I remember hearing the track back for the first time after his finishing touches and getting an overwhelming sense of Accomplishment. That feeling alone was worth it all.. I cant wait until the next one!!
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.
