Gratitude regularly composes and produces original music for agencies, production companies, and direct to brands. The company’s client base includes Reebok, Dunkin’ Donuts, GMC, and Planet Fitness, among others. Most recently, Gratitude created music for Simple Mobile (Hill Holliday), Gulf States Toyota (MMB), and Wrangler Jeans (Toth+Co).
“After a good amount of consideration, red-eye flights, and getting the chance to know and work with Scott, it became clear to me that now was the perfect time for us to establish a presence on the West Coast,” explains Bryan Hinkley, founder of Gratitude Sound. “We have a musical style that’s organic and unique, and there is a great deal of opportunity for our services in LA. Obviously, there’s a healthy amount of competition there as well, but I truly believe that once potential clients know more about us, our music will become highly sought after.”
“I am extremely excited to be the West Coast producer for Gratitude Sound,” adds Feldman. “In addition to making significant inroads with LA-based agencies, production companies, and music supervisors, I’m very much looking forward to signing and working with new talent. Gratitude has a remarkable body of work, roster and reputation. I’m thrilled to be a part of their success.”
Feldman is a 10-year veteran of the city’s music scene. His entry point was as the assistant to the composer and music supervisor of FX's hit show Sons of Anarchy. Shortly after his tenure with that series, he created his own music company, Darkbloom Productions, to house projects, ranging from composition and production, to musical direction and artist development. His work and collaborations have resulted in placements of his own music with ABC, NBC, TNT, Showtime and a host of other media outlets.
