Once Upon A Time Management work with a number of writer / producers on creating Bespoke Music for advertising. Through our work with sync and music production agencies around the world our writers have had music placements with brands such as Nescafe, Ponds, Dove, Eveready, Sunsilk, Friso and Abbot Grow amongst others.
Once Upon A Time is currently working with the following:
British singer-songwriter and Royal Academy of Music graduate Rosabella Gregory, is an award-winning music-fiend. Rosabella has performed her music in New York City, Paris, Barcelona and throughout the UK, including supporting the legendary Jools Holland. Grammy award-winning producer Russ Titelman once compared her to “a young Joni Mitchell”. She describes her songwriting style as “classical songwriting with a filmic twist, infused with improvisational elements” where “the storytelling aspect is the key”.
Rosabella’s original compositions have gained her syncs in movie soundtracks (‘Big Font Large Spacing’, ‘Lay The Favourite’), as well as numerous syncs for TV commercials, and the official launch theme ‘See Your World’ for Life.com. Recent performances of her original music include shows at the 606 club, Pizza Express Jazz Club, The Royal Festival Hall & Queen Elizabeth Hall.
