The company’s pop catalog includes Pink Floyd, Elvis Presley, Ludacris, Mark Ronson, M.I.A. and Daft Punk. Jordan founded punk label Watermark Records and boutique music publisher Earthprogram Music, both while attending high school and college. “Since I was a teenager I have been in this industry, and over time I have worked with everything from punk rock to EDM to commercial rock and straight-out pop,” Jordan says. “My role has always been the same: to discover and work with the best music, artists and writers in any genre.” In addition to serving in past A&R roles at Columbia Records and Hollywood Records/Disney Music Group, Jordan helped finance the launch of SynchTank, which provides software to catalog owners and managers.
