Life is full of ups and downs, but it seems that one thing leads to another and the joys outweigh the sacrifices at every turn.
A lonely 6-week writing retreat in Michigan turned into the album Broken Gold
, recorded with the amazing R&B/dub organ trio The Finest Kind
Broken Gold found its way to filmmaker Andrew Shapter
, who used parts of the album in teasers for and final cut of his forthcoming movie, The Teller and the Truth.
(whose composition and production work I have long admired) was composing the soundtrack to the movie, so Andrew suggested we work together on a Theme Song. (Pinch me now!)
We created a song called "Wild Bird" based on the musical and emotional themes in the film and I am so proud of how it turned out.
Working with all of these talented, driven, and whole-hearted people of vision has enriched and inspired my life.
The Teller and the Truth
is premiering at the Austin Film Festival in November. I hope you will check it out and be inspired to follow your own vision with boldness.
