WHO WE ARE

The Firm is an award winning music production company specialising in original composition and sound design for TV and commercials. We deliver a world class bespoke service from our state of the art studios based in Leeds in the North of England.

 

Our forte lies in our diverse team of talented composers and musicians led by Bob Bradley, whose vast broadcast experience and glittering portfolio of international pop acts means we can offer you the first class expertise and vision necessary to create the perfect soundtrack for your project.

 

Established in 2007 our work has earned us an outstanding reputation and an impressive roster of high profile clients to match.

WHAT WE DO

At The Firm, we believe that commissioning a bespoke piece of music creates the ultimate signature for your brand. Music is a highly powerful medium that evokes an emotional response from the listener, engaging them on a far deeper level than words or images alone.

 

Finding the right soundtrack is not only core to expressing your brand’s values and identity, but also acts as a highly effective catalyst for tapping into the listener’s subconscious and their ability to recall your product.

 

Our talented team of musicians and composers have produced a diverse range of original and cutting edge music for some of the world’s leading brands, including O2, Domino’s Pizza, Gillette and Panasonic, Mazuma Mobile and many, many more!
