The music community is a community of amazing story tellers. Whether your music is instrumental or lyrically based, it tells a beautiful and compelling story, and I would love nothing more than to support you in telling yours.
Hi there! My name's Jordan, and thanks for taking the time to get to know me. I'm a producer, mix engineer, and remixer based out of Nashville, TN. I specialize in EDM, Trance, and House, but have worked in a variety of genres ranging like Metalcore, LoFi, HipHop, Blues, Worship, Singer/Songwriter, Pop, Synthwave & Retrowave, and Cinematic. So whether you're looking for a producer, remixer, or mix engineer I am happy to support and serve you any way that I can.
Solid communication is the key to any great song, so before we work together I would love the opportunity to hear your why behind the song, the emotion your trying to capture, the space and vibe you want to convey, and any other notes you may have for me.
Thank you, and I look forward to creating something great together!

Jordan was amazing to work with and really listened to my vision of where I wanted to go with the song I wanted produced. He was super easy to work with and created a better song than I even envisioned. I would definitely recommend him for other jobs thanks to his skills and professionalism. Quick turnaround too!
Interview with Jordan Tallon
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I remember when I was first introduced to Electronic Music, I was listening to Armin Van Buuren's track "Coming Home." The energy and emotion in that song had me instantly hooked and gave me the desire to try and make captivating songs like that too. Other producers and composers who really inspire me musically are Zedd, Sick Individuals, Steve Jablonsky, and Hans Zimmer. These people to me, really know how to pour emotion and energy into their tracks, and make you feel what they feel. Other people who inspire me personally are Marc Frigo and Deane Ogden. These two men have really shown me what it looks like to value relationships with other people in the music industry, how to be fair, and how to bring a servant's heart into my craft.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I mostly work on various genres of EDM ranging from Bigroom, Trance, Dubstep, House, and Synthwave to name a few. I also have worked on rock, worship, and metal.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: As a producer working in predominantly EDM I've been told that it isn't music, however it can be just as much musical as any other genre. There is still a great deal of musicianship that goes into it, it just looks different.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I like to work on music that is energetic, compelling, and captivating.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Do your best to keep it simple. The chances are very slim that someone listening to the music you create are going to ask how many tracks you used to make the song, or your specific plugin chain you used. They just care about the quality of the music, the musicianship, and the message they're hearing.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I had the opportunity of putting together a 5 minute track of battle music for a laser tag event for the kids at a large community event, about 10,000 kids came trough to play laser tag that day. It was Star Wars themed, and the client wanted there to be explosions, lightsabers, gun shots, and anything else I could think of. The room they used had obstacles of all kinds, even Kilo Renn and Darth Vader showed up. The music played and the kids were instantly in it. The subs were shaking the room, the kids were screaming having a blast, with explosions coming from every angle. I was able to sit in the back and watch the whole thing unfold. Watching the kids have a blast to something I created was a really impactful reminder to me of why I do what I do. It showed me how the music and material I get to work on goes beyond myself and impacts others.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: At the end of the day the people listening to your music aren't going to see my name, they'll see yours. With that said, I want to be sure you are totally satisfied with the work I present you.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I get to help and be a part of other people's success. I love music and I love creating and working on music, however it doesn't compare to the joy of being able to see someone's dream and hard work become a reality.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Take me back to the day you got the idea for this song, what were you feeling, what brought this song about? What are you wanting this song to say musically?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Know the overarching theme and emotion you want to convey in the song.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I love working with artists who love and appreciate the music they create.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Understanding the emotion of a song, and making sure it's properly communicated.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Energy, emotion, and a storyline.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: For me, I first like to listen to what the artist has given me, and try to put myself in their shoes and feel what they're feeling, and get a brief synopsis of why they made the song. From there I like to communicate with the artist how I could see the song flowing, always keeping the emotion at the forefront. Once we both come to an agreement of a basic skeletal structure, I go to work putting it together, and sending off a tester. From there we will begin to make any modifications or changes as need be. This is very much a team effort, and I want to serve the artist the best I can.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Often times I’m helping to bring clients ideas to life, or breathing new life into one of their songs as a remixer. Either way, I’m here to serve the artist and the song.
