A table by the window, inspired conversation, and two soon-to-be-friends.  That’s how it began.  Both were intent on elevating a cause through thoughtful content, design and a shared vision.  The many years of collaboration that followed would grow and sustain a brand, later serving as the foundation for an agency concept.

Enter The Ninth House.  Here, our team of creatives align with artists, athletes, and purpose-driven brands to help them write a better story then LIVE IT WELL.

We channel each client’s vision in ways that expand the mind, inspire adventure and stretch the imagination, all for the greater good.  Authentic communication and stronger fan connections are the organic results.  And, just like our story, when well-intentioned people start working together, that’s when the magic really happens.

  • At the age of six, Brianna Falcone sat up in bed and told her mama with conviction that she wanted to become a professional singer.  The next week she joined a local choir where she would sing and write songs for the next ten years.  At 16, she left the confinement of her small Colorado town and moved to LA to give her childhood dream—still vivid within her—a chance.  Her new world fed her. The legacy of California’s Laurel Canyon music scene of the ‘60s and ‘70s began to inspire her. Now grown, she writes and sings in LA and NYC.  You can find Brianna on stage most Tuesday nights at The Bungalow in Santa Monica.  Her music is at once wise and light, a free-spirited California sound grounded in Colorado’s folk roots.

    In a recent interview with Free People, Brianna chats all things earthy, lyrical, and in bloom – including her debut EP “Lady of the Lake” produced by Matt Linesch (Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros).

  • Pro Surfer and Brazilian beauty Bruna Schmitz left home at a young age to pursue her dreams of competitive surfing and global travel and has since amassed an impressive portfolio of campaigns and passport stamps.  Bruna has become well respected among surfing professionals globally – equally for her big backhand hits and stylish forehand snaps, as well as for her natural Brazilian poise as a model.  She continues to be the “first” to things – whether it’s the first in the water or the first to be featured on major magazine covers and brand campaigns like Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue or Estee Lauder.  A Roxy Athlete for over a decade, she is also an ambassador for Sambazon, YogaWorks, and Heal the Bay.

    Yeah, we’re pretty sure “Bruna” is Portuguese for badass.

    Check out her recently released self-titled short film, narrated in English and Portuguese, now available on Outside Television and BrunasLife.com
