About Me

My name is Jordan Cooper. I live in Rego Park, Queens and I have been writing songs and making music for over 20 years. The first song I ever wrote were specifically about friends of mine, a trend which continues to this day.

I work as a freelance composer/songwriter. My official website for these services is jordancoopermusic.com.

In January 2017 I composed the music for The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, for the song "No More Excuses." You can watch that here.

In June 2011 I won the award for Best Musical Score in the NY 48 Hour Film Festival, for my group's film "Trixaxis and Allies," chosen out of over 60 films!

In June 2014 I won the award for "Best Original Song" in the NY 48 Hour Film Festival, for my group's film "Ham For The Holidays." You can hear the song, "That's OK, It's Christmas" here.

In June 2017 I won the award for Best Music at the NY 48 Hour Film Festival, for the short film "G-Cop." You can hear the song here.

I have numerous other musical projects, including my rock band Trouble's Afoot, my female fronted band Sally (our debut EP "We Are In A Car" is available on itunes, Amazon, Spotify, Pandora, etc!), as well as freelance work for Kevin Allison's RISK podcast

I play guitar, keyboards, and can make my way around the accordion, ukulele, autoharp, and other random percussive instruments. I have written over 200 songs and performed at such venues as CB's Gallery, Sidewalk Cafe, The Knitting Factory, Pete's Candy Store, Niagara Bar, Bar Matchless, Sine, Goodbye Blue Monday, Gizzi's Cafe, Trash Bar, Cakeshop, and many, many, many others. I record and mix all my music using Logic, Protools, East/West, Spectrasonics, and Native Instruments.
