bset music to listen to while working in PR


There is no doubt that within the workplace you’ll find unusual quirks and characteristics tied to each employee. The same holds true for the employees of The Hoffman Agency.

When working closely with peers, it’s not uncommon to learn something new about them on a regular basis – this includes their musical tastes!

That being said, if you asked our agency about their favorite music to listen to on the job (while not in meetings or coordinating client interviews, of course) the answers you’d receive would be just as eclectic as the personalities within our office.

We’ve gone ahead and compiled a short list of tracks that are top-of-mind at our agency while we’re working on compelling story ideas for clients:


–          Stubborn Love by The Lumineers

–          Flaws by Bastille
