Music Company, Wave Music (part of the Wave Studios Group) has rebranded as SixtyFour Music after expanding into the USA.

Since opening in New York (and later this year in Amsterdam), the decision was taken to rebrand to “reflect a more streamlined identity that focuses upon our independent status and growth beyond being Wave Studios’ in-house music company.”

The name comes from the year 1964, “a pivotal year for music. The Beatles landed at Kennedy airport, starting what became known as the ‘British Invasion’. 1964 witnessed The Rolling Stones release their debut album and Robert Moog invented his first synthesizer. It just so happened that this stellar year also marked Simon and Garfunkel’s first recording for Decca. So, in all it was a great time for music.”

Nick Payne, managing partner at SixtyFour Music said: “Since launching Wave Music 4 years ago as the in-house music offering at Wave Studios we’ve been lucky enough to collaborate on some rather special, award winning films and advertising campaigns.

We worked with Johnnie Burn as music supervisors on two feature films directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, which was really exciting. The Lobster and Killing of a Sacred Deer were both awarded at the Cannes Film Festivals during their year of release and both went on to receive critical acclaim and further industry awards.”

He goes on to say: “rebranding to SixtyFour Music feels like we are now grown up and leaving home having had the best of educations, we’re now ready to take on anything!” 2018 already looks really exciting at SixtyFour Music, our relationship with Yorgos Lanthimos continues with a new feature film currently in production called ’The Favourite’ and the 1st anniversary of our New York office is just around the corner”.
