Bob Giammarco, Francis Garcia
New York, NY (August 21, 2014)—aE|Media, the parent company of audioEngine|NYC, audioEngine|PHX, Broadcasters and KIND editorial, has added Shout It Out Loud Music (SIOLM) to its roster.
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.
“From my first conversation with SIOLM’s creative director Francis Garcia, 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 New York was the next logical step, and I’m very happy that Francis will stay on as partner.”
audioEngine|PHX composer Jason Camiolo, who has crafted scores for numerous Emmy-nominated commercials and television programs, will be represented as a writer by SIOLM in New York.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering up with one of the most respected audio professionals in the industry,” says 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’s roster of independent recording artists 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 been used by clients such as CoverGirl (Grey Advertising), Labatt Beer (Ammirati), The Vampire Diaries (The CW Network), Royal Pains (NBC Universal) and Nickelodeon.
Working in-house alongside Camiolo and Garcia are producer Kate Grom and engineer Mark Leombruni. The staff augments a roster of 30 recording artists, including Electric Youth, 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.
