Julianne Jordan is one of the original members of Format, one of its most prominent music supervisors and an influential and lead creative member of Format’s brand efforts.
An accomplished violist who studied her craft at Skidmore College, Julianne’s career as a music supervisor began to take flight when director Doug Liman brought her in to work on a small independent picture called Swingers. The film ignited the “swing” craze in the 90s, spawned a new type of vernacular and pushed the public’s interest in retro swing music into hyper drive. The soundtrack quickly went Gold and Julianne has not stopped working since.
Julianne’s expertise is well recognized and she is frequently brought in to supervise, consult, or executive music produce on films and projects where a high level of creativity and technical expertise is required to re-imagine sonic concepts and execute difficult on-screen scenarios. Examples of this creativity and skill are showcased in Alvin and the Chipmunks, where Julianne helped reinvent a classic sound, and throughout the Pitch Perfect franchise, where she helped breath fresh life into the classic world of a cappella music.
Julianne has served two terms on the Board of Governors for the Los Angeles Chapter of the Recording Academy and has been awarded two Music Supervisor of the Year awards from the Guild of Music Supervisors and took home the 2015 American Music Award and the 2016 Billboard Music Award for Best Soundtrack for Pitch Perfect 2.
Julianne’s select credits include: Trolls, Sausage Party, Pitch Perfect 1&2, Edge of Tomorrow, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, The Bourne Identity, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, The Italian Job and Go.
