Ryan Jordan – Lecturer

Ryan completed the Level 3 Music Technology course at Herefordshire College and has since gone on to run his own recording studio. His projects include working with bands and artists (Kinstrife, Frankie Wesson, The Kilpecks to name a few), working on feature film projects (Derelict – 2023, Hollow – 2021), and many voice-over projects including projects used by Paul Whitehouse, ChipsAway and the United Nations.
