Jordan Little | Serial Entrepreneur | Owner of Sound Scale
Who is Jordan Little?
I'm an ambitious young man from Prince George's County, Maryland. I'm extremely confident and I'm not afraid to take the path least traveled. I'm also a visionary, a hard-worker, and a progressive thinker.
What was your earliest memory of being hands-on with technology and music business?
On my 13th birthday, my mom got together some money and we built my computer. My mom was an Information Systems Specialist for the Department of Defense for the U.S. Government. My mom was always a computer person throughout my childhood which is what made it easier to become involved in technology. I had video games as a kid, but I started to understand what technology was at this time. Regardless of income, my mom made sure we had the latest pieces of technology in our household.
At 13, I became extremely interested in the music business. Before Making The Band came on, My cousin worked at a radio station and I remember going to 93.9 Summer Jamz and an in-store signing for The Saga Continues by P. Diddy and The Bad Boy Family. She worked in radio promotions at the time, so I got a chance to see things from her perspective. Then through my mom, I found out that we had a cousin in Florida who does music management. This cousin of mine ended up being Johnny Wright who was managing Britney Spears and NSYNC at the time. All of this occurred around the year 2001.
When did you conceive the idea for your forthcoming tech music company, Sound Scale?
The idea for Sound Scale came in 2016. My cousin Melvin Brown (co-founder of Konvict Muzik) manages various situations and he brought me in to do some tour management for one of his artists. After the tour, I was seeing a lot of problems in music that technology itself could solve. I didn't see anybody solving problems such as myself with regards to what was occurring which is why Sound Scale became the perfect idea to pursue. The music industry is perfect for disruption, but the music industry is also accustomed to conformity. It's a who you know type of business over anything and nepotism is at the highest level as well. Overall, I have a lot I want to introduce to the industry through my company and that's my goal.
What does your future look like in the world of technology?
I want to continue to establish myself as a creative thinker in the business. I have a cultural inheritance with music, so I want to carve my niche out in this space. I want to be someone who understands the needs of the industry and always has the capacity to deliver quality service.
