Music connects with emotions like no other medium. You can't touch it, you can't see it, but you sure can feel it. It's this untouchable magic that makes music the most powerful way to communicate. Quite simply, the right music can make a campaign unforgettable.
Workshop is a new music agency, born from creative vision, passion and a knack for unearthing amazing talent. With a strong focus on the artists we represent and solid experience working with the world's top brands and agencies, Workshop aims to inspire, create and shape culture along the way. We understand the important strategic and creative role of music within advertising and we can deliver musical solutions to fit briefs of any size, for bespoke, existing pieces or even live events. We'll even attend your planning meetings to offer musical guidance and strategy from concept to creation. The music industry is changing, and so are we.
Boasting solid label and publisher experience of over 20 years and an ear to the ground within the blogging community, they can be spotted at The Great Escape, SXSW and many other new music events over the year. Their hard-work and discerning tastes mean that our roster of global talent sounds amazing; we know good music, no matter what the genre. Working with credible, real artists is as important to brands as it is to us.
Inspiration comes from all the senses and in many forms, so we have begun to craft ourselves a space in the live events arena; curating visual art, culinary delights, music and experiences to stimulate the mind, provoke thought and start conversations.
2016 saw the Lions finally start to credit music for its huge role in advertising. As official music sponsors we had a strong presence at the event and our Workshop Radio DJs were doing their thang across multiple parties including Saatchi & Saatchi, Young Lions, Creative Review and the Cannes Connect bar. We awarded music winners with a very special limited edition vinyl from Tim Garland with art work by Gaurab Thakali.
