Working with Jordan was a pleasure.
I really like his universe and he did a fantastic job on my project.
Great vision and perfect mindset, a true artist.
Another job well done :)
Jordan is a great musician and a great producer. He has very good ideas to implement in our projects. He works very quick and efficiently. We worked with him in the past and we'll work with him again in the future definitely.
Jordan was very fast and delivered exactly what I needed. He added a magical sounds I couldn’t articulate but fit the vibe perfectly. Definitely gonna have him finish my album!!
AWESOME producer, took my track to the next level and made a great Mix & Master too. Thank you Jordan !
If I could give Jordan 10 stars I would! His creative and in depth approach to mixing took our track to a whole new level that I wouldn’t have even imagined possible. The treatments he used on vocals really made them shine and stand powerfully in the forefront of the mix. From a production standpoint, he was able to add some new sounds that really enhanced the width of the frequencies in the mix, while maintaining it’s original integrity. He also responds promptly and communicates clearly!
Top guy here. Good producer and willing to listen and understand your vision however obscure it is. When given creative freedom he will add more than anticipated. With his musicianship and knowledge he took the song further and I am well happy with our result.
Great communication, great mixing engineer and producer, great instrumentalist and vocalist
I gave him almost nothing and he gave me back gold
I will definitely work with him again soon.
Jordan was great. He made sure I was happy with our track & was very diligent with edits/revisions. love the end product!
Great musician/producer. I find his own productions and style very similar to what I had in mind and in the end it turned out well in the last version of my mix. I no longer knew how to make my mix into a good product - we have left the structure about the same but the changes made - the additions of the live instruments were very valuable. this guy doesn't stop until you're satisfied, really fast as well!
Amazing producer and mixer. Took my song to the next level.
I'll work with him again!
Amazing experience working with Jordan, definitely gonna work with him again.
He was great!

Jordan was amazing. Very accommodating, understanding, and unboundedly creative!
Can recommend 100%.
Jordan is a great producer and musician! He did a really really good job with our single. Great communication and very hard working. We're very happy with the result and his professionality. He turned our single into a hit. We'll work with him again for sure.
Working with Jordan has been by far one of the best experiences I've had with a producer. He took my song and brought it to the next level. The workflow was incredibly smooth. He is ultimately concerned with making sure your vision for the track is fully realized and will not stop until that is achieved. I would definitely work with him again and plan to for the remainder of my full length album.

We don't stop until everyone is super excited about the end result.

A: Try playing it backwards.

A: Be confident, trust your intuition and never give up on your vision!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: 'How did you do that?' I enjoy being transparent about my process and sharing the knowledge I've acquired over the years with others to empower their decision making process
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My journey as a Producer began as an artist pursuing the sounds I heard in my head. I can promise if we begin work together that I will go deep with you and make certain that I've accommodated your vision for the piece of music you've entrusted to me.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: At the end of the day, it's about what's coming out of the speakers. I enjoy a hybrid process, leaving no stone unturned in pursuit of the project's vision and the feeling we aim to create.
