NEW YORK CITY — Squeak E.

Rojas brings a diverse artistic perspective to his work, informing his compositions with his “side hustles” recording music as a solo artist, crafting accompanying visuals, and sometimes stepping in front of the camera to act in independent films. He has created original compositions for brands such as Google, Facebook, Honda, Kia and Spotify.
Thornton previously served as head of experiential and artist liaison at the company. In his new position, he will spearhead the company’s strategic growth into new and emerging industry sectors and platforms, and pursue opportunities to expand the company’s slate of music and audio offerings into new verticals.
“We’re thrilled to have Charles back at Squeak,” says Squeak E. Clean Studios’ managing director Hamish Macdonald. “Since his hiatus; his studies, freelance experience and time spent at Media Arts Lab have only expanded upon his abilities as a versatile composer able to elevate any brief.”
He continues: “As a company, we have always prided ourselves on being market innovators, and having Blade concentrate our efforts further into emerging industries and trends will continue our presence as much more than a traditional music and sound house.”
