ELVIS IS BACK IN THE BUILDING

November 28th, 2016|

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

November 23rd, 2016|

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

November 18th, 2016|

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

November 11th, 2016|

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

November 10th, 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

October 7th, 2016|

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

September 30th, 2016|

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 […]

Macmillan Coffee Morning 2016

September 30th, 2016|

After the huge success of our last coffee morning, we decided to get baking and raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support again. It was a great opportunity to get everyone in our building together and enjoy some lovely coffee and cakes. We raised just over £200 for this amazing charity, if you didn’t take part in […]

Music and Sound Awards 2016

July 21st, 2016|

Yet again John Lewis walked away with Best Sync Advertising in Broadcast and Best Re-Record and Adaptation  at the Music and Sound Awards 2016.

John Lewis work hard to choose their music; it rarely happens 3 days before play-out in the editing suite (my money is on the bet that they already have Christmas 2016 already […]

Swipe Right For Cost Savings

July 13th, 2016|

I met my ideal date, Global Head of Marketing of a FMCG company online – well, through LinkedIn really. After several months of ‘chatting’ it had taken multiple calls and emails, followed by a few diary adjustments to find a time that worked to actually meet. I guess he was impressed at my general charm […]
