We are thrilled to see our hardworking creatives win big at the EMMY awards. Congrats to HD’s BJ Burton on winning a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Music Direction on HOME. A big congratulations to our partners at Apple TV+ and A24!
Etsy and The Orchard really did win the holidays. The proof is in the (figgy) pudding! Your Mission named #1 Holiday Campaign of 2023 by AdAge. Custom Cover/Parody, US/UK Vocal Casting, Record, Final Mix + Sound Design by Heavy Duty.
Heavy Duty’s Amanda Yamate and Este Haim join the Composer Magazine podcast to shine a light on the unique contributions that fuel their creative partnership, and explain how each of their specific talents complement the other, resulting in the outstanding scores for 2022’s Do Revenge and 2023’s You Are So Not Invited To My Bat Mitzvah.
Countess Luann de Lesseps may have once preached “Money Can’t By You Class”, but she’s singing a different tune for the first-ever Uber Eats holiday campaign. Sparks flew when we were paired with the RHONY star and Special Group to re-envision this, once club banger, as a jazzed-up cabaret number. The lyrical spin is full of tips for how to be the consummate party guest. Custom cover, celebrity record, final mix and sound design by team Heavy Duty.
Just in time for your binge sessions this week, S2 of the Santa Clauses on Disney+ has arrived, with original score once again by Heavy Duty’s co-founder, Ariel Rechtshaid. And since you’ve made it to the ‘nice’ list, a gift for you: a just-released, charming cast recording – and holiday classic in the making – the cheeky parody: “Dancing With My Elf” also produced by Ariel.
A massive congratulations to Heavy Duty Projects’ Creative Director, DANIEL NIGRO, whose production brilliance garnered FIVE 2024 GRAMMY nominations for: PRODUCER OF THE YEAR, ALBUM OF THE YEAR, SONG OF THE YEAR, RECORD OF THE YEAR & BEST ROCK SONG, encompassing his work with Olivia Rodrigo, Caroline Polachek, Chappell Roan and Dermot Kennedy. Get to know Dan’s work as a songwriter and producer.
The Muppets Mayhem (our favorite puppet band of all time!) have been nominated for 6 Children’s and Family Emmy’s! We love to see the many talented artists honored for bringing The Mayhem, literally, to life. Heavy Duty landed two songs on the series soundtrack. Working with Dr. Teeth, Janice and the rest of the gang was a dream come true, to say the least!
Traveling home with a SILVER from this year’s LIA awards are Expedia and Anomaly London. The 2023 Glimpses Campaign has been honored in the Best Cinematography category, with original music by Heavy Duty throughout. And yes, we’re still dreaming of that perfect holiday…
