Her talent is equal to that of her reliability and willingness to work with producers, directors and executives to insure spectacular results. I am positive that she has the talent to become a Grammy and Academy Award winning level composer!"

"Winifred is a very gifted composer who I've had the pleasure of working with recently on LittleBigPlanet 3. She has a meticulous approach to every brief and always strives to fully understand the musical needs of the project. The care she takes over her productions, combined with her abundant talent, shines through every time."
Jeff Nachbaur, Warner Bros. Interactive
Producer, Warner Bros. Interactive
"I’ve now worked with Winifred several times. On Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, 2K brought her on as composer. On Speed Racer, my developer (Sidhe) recommended we bring her on the project for our very unique soundtrack. And then, when time came to find a composer for Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole, I could think of no one better suited to create the sound that we wanted… and after sharing a few samples of her work, the filmmakers / stakeholders agreed. Aside from being a fantastic composer, she’s also incredibly easy to work with… a complete win for any project."
Mark Yeend, Activision

"Our project was under a very tight deadline, and Winifred delivered high-quality orchestral compositions faster than any composer I've worked with. She sustained a breakneck pace until the project was complete, and her music was always exactly what we asked for. Her music definitely improved our game, setting a distinct tone for each game area. With almost no re-writes, Winifred's compositions pleased our team, our publisher, and the IP holder on top of that! Winifred is one of the most consistent professionals I've worked with."
Sam Player, Electronic Arts
Executive Producer, Electronic Arts / EA Maxis
"We are very excited about the caliber of music being included in SimAnimals. We needed the music to reflect the status and mood of the game and Winifred has nailed that with her score. As you move through the game, you will hear how your choices are affecting the forest through the music, whether that be upbeat and light when the forest is happy or dramatic and dark when the forest is not so happy."
Kenneth Young, Media Molecule
Head of Audio, Media Molecule
"Winifred's compositions for LittleBigPlanet 2 are fantastic. Her work not only met the requirements of a rather tricky brief, it totally surpassed whatever expectations I might have had and delivered something magical which contributes a great deal to players' experience when playing the game. Winifred is a very talented composer and performer, is a pleasure to work with and comes highly recommended."
Martin Capel, Ubisoft
"Winifred joined Assassin’s Creed 3 Liberation at an advanced stage of production, and from this point she not only managed to deliver all the music requirements for the title within very tight deadlines, but delivered with them an award winning soundtrack! I can strongly recommend Winifred for any project’s music needs."
Aaron Gray, Activision

"Winifred Phillips was a natural fit for this project! The music she created fit seamlessly into the game and played a vital role in helping create the perfect atmosphere of the Shrek® universe."
Marcus Fielding, Electronic Arts
Lead Producer, Electronic Arts Montreal
"Winifred's compositional agility and sheer musical talent for Spore Wii Hero was inspiring. The results could not have been more complementary of the franchise and genre of game, and helped deliver a Spore creature musical experience that will be memorable in the world of game music for many years to come."
Michael Wilford, Twisted Pixel Games
CEO, Twisted Pixel Games
"Music is a big deal for us, especially for a game that relies so much on mood and emotions between characters. Before we even pitched the idea to Microsoft we picked out Winifred Phillips, an award-winning composer behind many other great titles, including God of War. We had worked with her before and knew she had the perfect sensibility for the mood we were going for, and she created an excellent jazz-influenced soundtrack that hit the nail on the head."
Robi Kauker, Electronic Arts
Audio Director, Electronic Arts / EA Maxis
"Our goal was to give a unique and sophisticated voice to the game. Drawing inspiration from pieces like Prokofiev’s Peter and The Wolf, we found the context of the game gave us plenty of opportunity for the timelessness of the orchestra’s instruments and the rich range of Winifred’s compositions."
Jay Waters, Sumo Digital
Lead Audio, Sumo Digital
"Winifred is a wonderful composer to work with. She has an innate ability to know exactly what you need and turns around top quality mixes at every step of the process. Her musical knowledge and compositional artistry are exemplary, meaning that whatever crazy concoction of genres we happened to dream up, she not only blew us away with, but often won awards in the process! And in terms of LittleBigPlanet, Winifred is part of its very fabric, having both a mastery of its unique interactive music system, as well as a perfect understanding of its musical aesthetic. I very much look forward to future collaborations!"
Cordy Rierson, Collective Studios
Producer, Collective Studios / Double Helix Games

She is passionate about her work and really gives each game she works on its own personality. I knew she would be perfect for The Maw, and I think her soundtrack is incredible for the game."
