Hi, I’m Glenn Jordan, an Emmy award-winning composer Done a lot of film TV here in Hollywood. I’ve been nominated for four Emmys, one as musical director of Pee-wee’s Playhouse …worked on many other animated and live-action shows.

They do everything I need them to do and they do it well. They are exactly what I was looking
