A true professional! We have worked on a few projects together already and I plan to make this a long term relationship! Jordan is amazing to work with, super personable and always perfecting his craft to match the vibe I ask for!
Jordan was really amazing to work with! He was able to tweak, trim, alter, and create the exact thing I had wanted! Super timely and responsive too!
Absolutely AMAZING! I'd give 10 stars if I could! Prairies produced my song Atychiphobia and he is incredible. He was so easy to work with and worked with me to get exactly the sound that I wanted. He has such great instincts with his production and will add SO MUCH creativity and life to your song!
