We felt that is was time to introduce the WMP team and let you get to know them. Some have been at WMP for years, others have just started. First up is the lovely Kim…
Name: Kim Hobbs
Start date with WMP: July 2014
First impressions of WMP:
How do they survive with no natural light in their studio?!
What does your role involve at WMP:
I am not a musician…! I work alongside the team handling all communications including website updates and social media.
Favourite project so far:
I loved watching the guys write and produce the ‘Bin It’ track for Wrigleys at the beginning of the year. The fun lyrics and catchy melody meant it stayed in my head for weeks.
What music are you currently listening to:
From the Wreckage by The Wind and the Wave.
I could chat about our work all day and always want people to hear the latest job we are working on.
If you are not in the WMP studio where would we most likely find you:
I would either be working for design and development studio Boxhead down the road or sipping on a decaf coffee in one of Leeds great independent coffee shops.
What is the best bit about your job?
I love working with a group of great guys who are so talented. I could chat about our work all day and always want people to hear the latest job we are working on.
What has been your proudest moment at WMP so far?
I was sitting in the cinema watching the trailers before a film and the trailer for ‘Mr Holmes’ came on. It was so awesome to hear our track playing in the cinema and know that so many people were listening to our work.
Who would you love to work with in the future? Client or collaboration..
I would love to experience working on more television content. Watching the ‘Forced Marriage Cops’ documentary on channel 4 a couple of weeks ago felt like a proud moment and I would love to hear more of our tracks on television. Maybe on a new drama such as ITV’s Broadchurch or BBC’s Hinterland.
Memorable studio moment…
Arriving at work in a GAP salmon pink shirt to be told that Ben has a matching one. We are yet to wear them on the same day…
