"I've worked with the Skyrme brothers many times now and have come to expect one thing. Universal excellence. They practice excellence in musical composition, turnaround, taking direction, conference call diction, listening, haircuts and international accents that make words like "corpuscle" and "frothy" sound like they're being transmitted by linguist angels who fan you with palm fronds as you lounge in a hammock made of cheeseburgers."
- Andy Kadin, Creative (Saatchi, BBDO, 72 & Sunny)
"Conan and Tom translate plain English to music effortlessly, a talent on which I place great value having worked with composers who can't. Their ability to quickly understand what we're after when starting from scratch on a composition saves us so much time and stress. For original composition work, Skyrmish is my first call."
- Nathan Laver, Creative (Arnold Worldwide)
"The guys at Skyrmish have that glossy production polish you expect from the bigger, usual suspects in the music world. But you get the velvet glove service you'd expect from a boutique. You talk right to the composers, so nothing ever gets lost in the translation. Tom, Conan and their team move between genres and styles deftly. When there's feedback, they push to make things better, instead of curling up in a ball to die. Though the name connotes conflict, Skyrmish delivers quite the opposite experience: impeccably produced music, without the flaky, rockstar attitude."
- Tim Cawley, Group Creative Director (Hill, Holliday)
