Wadley and Gureckis continue: "We’re no longer the new kids on the block and Elijah has the right experience, high creative standards, and big growth aspirations to help take Found Objects to the next level. Elijah will be instrumental in leading across departments, enabling our creatives and producers to focus on what we do best, making industry leading music and sound.” 

Torn comments: “I’ve known Executive Producer Jennie Armon for years and the more I saw founders Jay Wadley and Trevor Gureckis’ names popping up on these high-profile films and TV projects, the bigger fan I became of Found Objects. The creative insight, passion and focus on creating amazing music couldn’t be more clear, and it shows, not just in the awards, but in the creativity of work being produced. They have been building something truly wonderful, and with as much care for people as the music itself. As I help lead the creative and production team into new opportunities in sonic branding and bring my experience to the next act of Found Objects, I’m definitely excited for what the future holds.”
