Steve Jordan

Record producer feature at Germano Studios

We met up with Steve Jordan, one of New York's most gifted record producers, while taking a break from mixing at the fantastic Germano Studios.

Steve Jordan's a Grammy Award winning producer (with Robert Cray) and as a drummer he has played with lots of top artists, from Alicia Keys to Eric Clapton. One particular favourite of ours here at RP is his drumming on the Nightfly (Walk between the raindrops).

Steve has worked with artists including Keith Richards, John Mayer, BB King, Don Henley, Bob Dylan, John Mellencamp, Stevie Nicks, Neil Young, Sheryl Crow etc.

When talking about being a record producer Steve say's that the key thing to remember is that the public doesn't care about what the budget was, how good the gear is or any of the other excuses, it's of no importance to them. Always make sure that whatever you produce is great, no matter what the buget.
