Testimonials

Andrew Montell

Andrew Montell

Founder: Archetype Media & Acclaim Magazine

“Back when hip-hop music was still a dirty word in mainstream Australian media, Simone Amelia Jordan brought to life Urban Hitz magazine, one of the country’s first urban newsstand titles and the first published by a major magazine-publishing house. After more than three years in the Editor’s role at Urban Hitz, Simone moved Stateside, where she held a variety of senior media roles at companies including DrJays.com, SiriusXM Radio and The Source magazine. Few Aussies can claim a career legacy with the scope of hip-hop industry experience that Simone can. A true pioneer.”

CEO Dawn Raid Entertainment/1979 MGMT Ltd

“Simone is an icon to me for representing Hip-Hop from Down Under on the international stage, from Urban Hitz magazine to the suites of New York City as Editor of The Source. She’s all passion and can spot talent, but the secret is her ability to develop, cultivate and launch that talent with credibility.”

Naughty By Nature

“I’ve known Simone over 20 years. She’s one of the most dedicated,
consistent, loyal people I’ve met in my life. She’s a conduit who
attracts great people to not only network, but become lifelong family.
Most importantly, she truly fights for what she believes in and often
fights for others who may not have the knowledge or strength to do for
self. I’m proud of Simone’s continued growth and passion and proud to
call her my sister.”

Partner, Chief Strategy Officer, Anomaly

“Simone has a natural inclination for understanding the needs of the audience. This is reflected in how she can package mere pictures and words that not only builds an audience, but maintains it and keeps them involved. Better yet, she can do this with the most fickle audience of all: urban youth. For the major clients I represented, she articulated clear and simple strategies that make her well worth partnering with to achieve your next hit.”
