Pandora Launches Studio Resonate: an Audio Consultancy

Studio Resonate brings more than a decade of sonic expertise to
propel brands into the new era of audio

the largest music streaming service in the U.S., today announced the
launch of Studio Resonate. Studio Resonate is an in-house
consultancy that provides advertisers with audio creative development,
sonic branding and strategy services, as well as visual design, rich
media production, web / mobile experiences, and live activations.

Pandora pioneered music streaming and has been at the forefront of
ad-supported digital audio since its introduction. It has one of the
largest pools of data in streaming—noting trends in preferences and
behaviors; particularly how listeners respond to advertising. Over the
past decade, Pandora has incorporated this data and years of creative
expertise to develop nearly 250,000 audio spots on its platform. Brands
harnessing audio can increase attention, facilitate message recall,
improve perception, drive purchase intent, elicit physiological
responses, increase likability, build positive associations, and produce
chemical reactions in the brain.

“We are launching Studio Resonate with the understanding that if
a brand doesn’t have a holistic audio strategy, it is not being heard,”
said Lauren Nagel, VP and executive creative director at Pandora. “Our
ears are uniquely powerful. They are active sensors that attend to our
emotional and physical well-being – and they are always on. Sound is an
inherently interactive experience that creates a personal connection and
engagement in ways that no other medium can.”

Pandora has provided these services to advertising clients for years.
The launch of Studio Resonate marks the first time this creative
offering will sit under one brand. The range of services offered to
advertisers is tied to the volume of media that they buy on Pandora.

“Digital audio has evolved in a big way over the past several years, and
while advertisers are becoming more interested in audio innovation, they
often default to using creative tactics that are carried over from other
formats because there hasn’t been much guidance or direction in this
space,” said Lizzie Widhelm, SVP of ad innovation at Pandora. “Studio
world-class audio creative team has the experience,
expertise, and data to help marketers approach audio in its own way –
improving opportunities for ad effectiveness and resonance, while
increasing listener satisfaction.”
