As a producer, engineer, and musician, I've been involved in countless recording sessions that range from new independent artists recording singles, to globally-touring artists (including Alice in Chains, Halestorm, Mercy Me) cutting big records. This wide realm of experience has taught me skills that I use to turn artists' visions into reality.
My goal as a music producer and musician is to use skills I've acquired and developed over my career to help realize the vision an artist has for their music. I wear several different hats as music producer and can fill many rolls to help you achieve your goals as an artist.
Music Producer: As a producer I primarily work with bands who are looking for a polished, yet natural sounding recording. I love recording real instruments and making records with a modern feel in a classic way. Being in Nashville I've had the opportunity to work on a lot of country music, both modern, and more traditional styles. Having said that I'm definitely a rock music lover at heart. I worked for Nick Raskulinecz as an assistant engineer on several big rock records from 2016-2018 (Alice in Chains, Rise Against, Halestorm, etc) and learned an incredible amount about making rock records from him.
Musician: A a musician I use my skills from 18+ years playing music in various capacities to make artists' music stand out. I've learned so much from playing full time on Broadway in Nashville as a bassist. Knowing hundreds of songs across various genres means I have a large knowledge base to pull from when creating instrumentation and vocal arrangements for your music. I feel that having so many influences on my playing and writing, combined with my engineering background gives me a unique perspective.

Interview with Jordan Logue
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been playing bass since I was 12. Over the years I picked up drums and guitar. I started recording myself on a digital four-track when I was 19. That began my love affair with recording. From there I decided to go to Middle Tennessee State University, and major in audio production. For my last semester I interned at Dark Horse Recording. That was 2013. After I graduated I stuck around and picked up assisting gigs, which led to engineering gigs. After a few years of building my skills and business, I got an offer to work for Nick Raskulinecz as his 2nd engineer in 2016. So I quit the day job and went freelance. Working for myself and Nick when he had projects for me. In 2018, I went out on my own and I began exclusively freelancing as an producer/engineer and a musician.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: As a listener, I tend to gravitate toward rock and metal, but professionally I've been fortunate to be able to work on a lot of different styles of music. As a 2nd engineer I've worked with a wide variety of artists, from Rise Against, to Mercy Me, to Foghat, and more. As a engineer/producer/musician, I've worked on everything from country, rock, CCM, americana, metal, pop. I've done, and continue to do, a little of everything.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I recently moved into a small mix/overdub room near Music Row in Nashville, TN. It has a Harrison 3232 console in it I'm diving in to. I use a Universal Audio Apollo 8p with a Twin as my interface, Emotiva Stealth 8 studio monitors, a bunch of instruments (various guitars, basses, amplifiers, pedals, a mandolin, I'm always looking into something new) lots of software, and a pretty sweet lava lamp.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: When I was an assistant engineer, I worked with Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Alice In Chains, Rush, etc.) he's been very influential to me as a producer/engineer.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Producing, recording, mixing, editing/vocal tuning, remotely building full production demos.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I work on so many varying projects to different ends, and different means to those ends, that it's hard to say what my typical process is...I guess I talk with the client, figure out their needs, figure out the best way to meet those needs, and then do it.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I feel like I understand pop sensibility and what people are expecting from a song, but I'm not ruled by it. I know the book, but I like going off-book and coming up with different and interesting arrangements/moments in a song.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Whatever you're recording, get it right from the source. If you're recording a snare drum, do everything in your power to make that drum sound as good as possible before the microphone. You can process a source to improve upon it, but a bad sounding drum will sound bad no matter what you do to it. That goes for any source.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Metallica. They've been my favorite band since I had a favorite band. But they need a production overhaul.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I'm a D.J....I'm not.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I LOVE making music.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: As long as you hold up your end of the deal, I will do whatever it takes to make sure you're ecstatic about the product we make.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog or digital? Yes. Both have pros and cons, but when used in conjunction, you can get the best of both worlds.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I just finished up an traditional/outlaw country record with a group called, The Kentucky Linemen (look 'em up!). I co-produced it with the band, and I did all the recording and mixing as well. We put a lot of time and effort into that one and I'm really happy with how it turned out!
