For his part, Mannino says he’s been a lifelong fan of Howling Music, both as an original music house and a burgeoning music library. “They are amazing,” he says. “I thought these guys were mostly crazy or heavily medicated, but it turns out they’re really, really good at what they do.”
At Swell, Mannino oversaw original music production, sound design and sound mixing for brands including Credit Karma, Facebook, Fitbit, Square, Golden State Warriors, Uber, Lyft and others.
