COMPOSER · MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST
Jordan Lewis is a media composer and multi-instrumentalist.
Originally from New England, Jordan has lived, worked, and travelled all around the world, taking his artistic passions with him. After completing his undergraduate work, Jordan spent several years abroad in New Zealand, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas. These experiences continue to inform his voice as a composer.
Jordan currently resides in Los Angeles and is busy pursuing his own creative endeavors with 5k Music Inc. as well as collaborating with such composers as Didier Lean Rachou, Anton Sanko, David Robbins, Jake Monaco, and Jeff Sudakin. Such collaborative efforts have afforded Jordan the opportunity to compose additional music for the PBS documentary, “E.O. Wilson: Of Ants and Men,” nominated for an Emmy in the Outstanding Music and Sound category and to work as an orchestrator and score mixer on the 16-time Emmy winning series, Deadliest Catch (Discovery), as well as on many other unscripted series for the Discovery network. Jordan’s work as a composer, orchestrator, sound designer, session player, and mixer can be heard on HBO, Discovery, FOX, National Geographic, History, Netflix, PBS, Pivot, and more.
In 2016, Jordan composed the all acoustic/americana score for “When To Die,” a feature documentary about the history and culture of Civil War reenactment. Recently, Jordan composed the underscore for the documentary feature, “G-Funk,” an examination of the musical, social, and cultural circumstances which gave birth to a new era of hip-hop music. “G-Funk” is directed by Karam Gill, co-produced by Warren G, and premiered at Austin’s SXSW Film Festival in March, 2017.
When not working on music, Jordan enjoys indulging his passions for photography, distance hiking, disk golf, reading, and fine whiskey. Jordan holds a BA in English and Jazz Piano/Composition from the University of Vermont and an MFA in Film Composition from Columbia College Chicago.
