“From my first conversation with Francis Garcia, SIOLM’s creative director, I knew he was the right person to help us expand our music offerings in the New York market” says Bob Giammarco, aE|Media’s CEO. "Bringing SIOLM in to collaborate with our other brands under one roof in NY was the next logical step.” audioEngine|PHX composer, Jason Camiolo, who’s crafted scores for numerous Emmy-nominated commercials and television programs, will be represented as a writer by SIOLM in NY.
SIOLM will occupy the John Storyk-designed Studio B at 817 Broadway with the addition of a live room and a fully integrated writing suite adjacent to its primary studio.
“We're thrilled to be partnering up with one of the most respected audio professionals in the industry”, adds Garcia about Giammarco. “Shout has always aspired to elevate the creative process. The ability to actively collaborate with aE|Media’s visual effects and editorial brands is another means of accomplishing that.”
SIOLM employs a roster of independent recording artists to create both licensed and scored musical content under the guidance of Garcia, whose 17-year career includes the role of Head of Music Supervision/Composer at Elias Arts prior to founding SIOLM. The company's ‘disruptive’ creative approach has yielded positive results for clients such as CoverGirl (Grey Advertising), Labatt Beer (Ammirati), Avon (Madonna Badger), The Vampire Diaries (The CW Network), Royal Pains (NBC Universal) and Nickelodeon, in recent months.
Working in-house alongside Camiolo and Garcia – who remains a partner in the new arrangement – are Kate Grom (producer) and Mark Leombruni (engineer). The staff augments a roster of 30 recording artists, including: Electric Youth (known for their single "A Real Hero" from the motion picture, Drive),VHS or Beta, Ringo Deathstarr, Coasts, Scorpion Child, Kisses and Ejecta (featuring Leanne Macomber of Neon Indian and Autre Ne Veut producer, Joel Ford), among others.
