Elias is setting out to make big waves across the pond. Leading our expansion into the UK market is ECD Brent Nichols, whose history of creating award-winning projects with UK companies is joined with the skills of founder Jonathan Elias, who continues to be heavily involved in scoring for the top agencies in the advertising community.
“One of the really exciting things about working in the UK is that the creative there takes great risks by looking for music with really unique qualities and composition,” Brent remarks.
Elias’s very own Jason Kramer wins the 2013 Guild of Music Supervisors Award for “Best Music Supervision in Advertising: Music House & Agency” for his work with Mens Wearhouse and Nissan.

Elias was chosen as the exclusive audio partner for marketing expert Martin Lindstrom’s two-part pilot segment “Main Street Makeover” for NBC's Today Show about turning around struggling businesses, spotlighting the 24-hour 'before and after' makeover of a mom-and-pop toy store in downtown Richmond, Virginia.
The Elias team strategically designed, leveraged, and implemented sonic elements to drive business results, revealing the powerful ability of music and sound to communicate the message of a brand when deployed strategically.
Elias was featured in the number 4 spot in SHOOT's recent Top Ten list, for our original score and sound design work for Intel's "Conflict Free" campaign, which spotlights the brand's humanitarian efforts to source conflict-free minerals for its microprocessors.
Elias has a new series called “Unreleased”. Hosted by their music supervisor, Jason Kramer, it is a collection of live interviews and recordings of artists who stop by the Elias Studio in Los Angeles. “Unreleased” will bring you into the world of the artist though their eyes to yours.
Elias works on yet another winning project with the Chrysler spot “Body and Soul,” which took home a Bronze Lion for Cinematography at Cannes following wins for Best Copywriting and Cinematography at the 2014 AICP Awards. The Elias team handled all of the music and sound design, creating a reflective, nostalgic tone for the first-ever spot to showcase the high-performance SRT Viper nameplate.
Intel + Toshiba's interactive film experience The Power Inside wins big at Cannes! Led by ECD Brent Nichols, the Elias team composed the genre-bending original score for the hit saga, which received 4 Lions across 4 categories - Cyber, Branded Content and 2 in Film Craft - including Direction.
Yet another year has passed for the most gorgeous week of networking in the world. From Hotel du Cap to Belles Rives to La Pizza, and our group event at perfumery Gallimard in Grasse, we spent our time in the sun (except for all the late nights at the Carlton!) Until next year…
Elias debuts a sparkling new website just in time for summer. Designed by the über-talented Argentinian graphic designer Jesica Sleifca, our new online home is fresh, contemporary, and inspiring - just the way we like it.
