Who we are
Listen Listen is a boutique music supervision company formed in 2010 by Tiffany Anders, working in television, film, and advertising. Along with her colleague Taylor Rowley, Tiffany works with creatives in these fields to bring together the perfect musical component to enhance their stories and visual message while also working within the producers' bottom line, delivering projects on time and within budget.
From scrappy indie films that have become success stories, like 2010 Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner Like Crazy, to Netflix’s 90s era music-heavy teenage dramedy Everything Sucks!, there is no project too big or too small that can't be tackled with their creative know-how and practical solutions to form the perfect soundtrack.

A Los Angeles native, Tiffany Anders grew up with a lust for music. She began studying music in grade school and continued through high school, where she sang in the choir, played the clarinet, and learned music theory. She sought out bands and attended live shows at a very early age. Her young enthusiasm eventually led her to a recording career of her own, singing back-up on Dinosaur Jr.’s album Where You Been at the age of 17, and cutting her 2001 solo debut album, Funny Cry Happy Gift, produced by rock icon PJ Harvey and released to critical acclaim.
As the daughter of independent filmmaker Allison Anders, Tiffany has witnessed firsthand the director's quandary when it comes to the marriage of music and film. She was just eight years old when her mother was accepted to UCLA’s film program, and would regularly sleep on the floor while Allison pulled all-nighters in the editing room, giving her an intimate look at how music worked with picture.
A young Tiffany often assisted with the music on her mother’s films, suggesting that guitar hero J Mascis create the desolate desert soundtrack for her film Gas Food Lodging, and recommending artists to pair with songwriters for the female singer-songwriter pop narrative Grace of My Heart (for which she also wrote a song and is credited as music consultant).
In 2008 while continuing to work on her own music, she decided to learn more about what full-time music supervision entailed by interning for music supervisor Karyn Rachtman (Pulp Fiction, Reality Bites, Bulworth), and taking a course at UCLA taught by Emmy-nominated music supervisor Jennifer Pyken. In 2009 she got her first supervision job on the micro-budget film, Like Crazy, which went on to win the 2010 Sundance Grand Jury Prize. The film and its soundtrack have both been praised by fans and critics alike.
She has continued to enjoy success as a music supervisor working in film television, and advertising. Her film credits include Drake Doremus’ Like Crazy, Breathe In, Newness, and Equals, James Ponsoldt’s Smashed, The End of the Tour, and The Circle, and many others. Her television credits include the critically acclaimed FX television series You’re The Worst, the Netflix period piece Everything Sucks!, and the upcoming Facebook Watch series Sorry For Your Loss, starring Elizabeth Olsen.
In addition to music supervision, she is one of the founders and head curators of Los Angeles’ annual Don’t Knock The Rock music film festival and has contributed over 500 album reviews for the largest independent record store in America, Amoeba Music. She has also contributed pieces for the local music magazine L.A. Record, conducting interviews with Mark Gardner (Ride), Kevin Shields (My Bloody Valentine), and Margo Guryan.
