What we're all about

Taste, smell, look, feel… these are all of the things that make our favorite brands feel familiar. But what about sound?

With all of the different ways to get your message out there today, sound is the link that ties it all together.

As the American Marketing Association defines it, a brand is: “a name, term, sign, symbol or design, or a combination of them, intended to identify the goods and services of one seller and to differentiate them from those of other sellers.” …ok. Let’s put sound on that list as well.

“Ownable” sonic signatures come from taking the time to really understand the brand before heading into the studio.   That’s what we do.

Led by award winning composer Greg Smith, Kick brings a boutique approach to music production and sound design. You may not be a musician, but you know what you want when you hear it.  We work with you one on one until you get there.

Sonic Branding

The American Marketing Association defines a brand as: “a name, term, sign, symbol or design, or a combination of them, intended to identify the goods and services of one seller and to differentiate them from those of other sellers.” Where is sound on that list? As we become more immersed in online media, brand building has evolved into an overall consumer experience where sound is a key part of the mix. Past Sonic Branding clients include Disney XD, A&E, MTV, Showtime, National Geographic Network, Nickelodeon and many others.

Commercials

Kick Music has created commercials for major ad agencies and consumer goods companies, including Sears, JC Penney, Macy’s, Skechers, Honda, Ford, Lions Gate Films, and many others. We know that products are more than what’s for sale. Our goal is to get to know the feel and energy behind your product and distill it into sound – that extra element that drives home your brand.
