Nordoff Robbins – Life Changing Music

Professional musicians and songwriters have an innate talent for making connections and distilling a message into its essence. They are often dreamers and visionaries who operate on an emotional level – natural catalysts for expressing complex social issues in contemporary voice.

For the rest of us music is something that we often take for granted. We […]

Gotta Sing!

‘Sing’ -the recent release by the animation company Illumination is a testament to the brilliance of their music team headed up by their Music Supervisor Jojo Villaneuva. It is not only the fact that clearing the final 65 tracks must have been a marathon, but I can only imagine the number of tracks that got […]

soundlounge’s Top 5 Albums of 2016

We like to round off every year by going through our music libraries and picking our top 5 releases of this year. It was hard to pick just 5 (Thomas struggled pretty bad) out of all of the brilliant albums that came out in 2016 but we managed it. Let us know if you agree […]

ELVIS IS BACK IN THE BUILDING

Last week I was invited by Carlin Music to see Elvis singing with the London Philharmonic Orchestra at the O2.  I really appreciated the invitation and it was great to spend time with colleagues, but schlepping over to Greenwich on a cold Wednesday night was not my first choice of how to spend an evening.

Back To School With The School of Rock

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Julian Fellowes, are not two names that I would generally link with Rock Music or street language. I am a massive fan of Jack Black and have seen the film School of Rock three times! So when it was suggested that ‘me and him indoors’ go to see School of Rock […]

Happy November

Christmas gets earlier and earlier every year. Personally, I feel that Xmas ads should follow the rules of the Advent calendar, the first sighting just 25 days before the 25th December.

But the media love a story. So we were advised that we were ‘waiting expectantly for the latest bunch of Christmas commercials’ to hit our screens, […]

5 Songs That Will Get Your Brand Inside Your Consumers’ Head – The Story Of Earworms

It happens to all of us at some time – we hear a song on the radio and we just keep singing it all day long; in the shower, walking down the street –it just won’t go away.

It is also estimated that 77% of the 30,000 commercials clocked every year use music, and yet it […]

John Lewis Christmas Advert 2016

So the ad we all have apparently been waiting for has been released today. I am not sure that I agree with The Guardian that Adam and Eve have written and produced a commercial for John Lewis, that is a metaphor for Donald and Hillary but I watched the commercial this morning and I was quite […]

Advertising – Why The Music Should Fit The Brand

The Advertising Industry is brilliant at creating the most spectacular visuals. There seems to be a formula that goes something like this. Shoot at amazing locations – think Sony Bravia, or Apple (the balloon theme seems popular here!) or Bacardi, work with the best directors, add a handful of great computer graphics and sprinkle every […]

Hollywood Music Supervisors Want To Help Set Up A UK Guild For Advertisers

What does the British Advertising Industry have in common with Hollywood? Well apart from it being the destination of choice for our ambitious UK campaign directors, it would also seem that the exchange of talent and ideas is two-way across the pond.

This week I have been hanging out with the cream of Hollywood Music Supervisors […]
