Audio Engineer + Composer
Stephen Davies comes from the tropical paradise of Rochester NY. That’s where his passion for music, recording, guitar, and espresso began. These passions were further developed while working at a premiere Rochester recording studio, The Studios at Linden Oaks, and during his time at Duquesne University where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree of Music Technology.
At Hobo, Stephen brings his engineering, music, and sound designing skills to the table. As the In-House-Composer, he writes music that achieves your creative goals. Thus far, he has composed music for Comcast, Vogue Magazine, Crown Royal, Oxfam and others.
Leigh-Anne was born and raised in the unknown town of Flourtown, PA. Her passion for television, music, and her desire to get out of her small town brought her to Hofstra University, home of the “fist pumping” and “GTL” ways of life. Fueled by her Television Production major, Leigh-Anne produced many of her own programs, including a live televised concert.
Having always dreamed of working in the Big Apple, she quickly acquired internships at film, TV, and post production companies. Fresh out of college and wandering the streets of New York, Leigh-Anne was heckled by a Hobo and has been with us ever since.
