  • Gerry Goffin 1939 - 2014

    Jun 20, 2014

    Legendary songwriter Gerry Goffin has passed away at age 75.

    Gerry Goffin 1939 - 2014

    Jun 20, 2014

    It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing the passing of legendary lyricist Gerry Goffin. Gerry was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend – and he will be greatly missed.

    Gerry, with his former wife Carole King, penned dozens of diverse, chart-topping classics such as “The Loco-Motion,” “Will You Love Me Tomorrow,” “Up on the Roof,” and "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.” His songs, whose universal appeal transcended genres and generations, were performed by numerous artists including The Drifters, Steve Lawrence, Aretha Franklin, The Beatles, Amy Winehouse, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Gladys Knight, Phil Collins, Tina Turner, Diana Ross, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and U2.

    Carole King released a statement describing the importance of Gerry’s work in popular music: “Gerry Goffin was my first love. He had a profound impact on my life and the rest of the world. Gerry was a good man and a dynamic force, whose words and creative influence will resonate for generations to come… His words expressed what so many people were feeling but didn’t know how to say. If you want to join his loved ones in honoring him, look at the names of the songwriters under the titles of songs…”




    His legacy is incomparable: the world has truly lost one of its greatest talents.

    Gerald “Gerry” Goffin | February 11, 1939 – June 19, 2014

    Exclusive Interview With Chris Tyng!

    May 6, 2014

    We’d like to congratulate Chris Tyng and the Grow Music Project on releasing episode four of the Session Diaries today! We have an exclusive interview with Chris, just for the occassion.

    Interview with Chris Tyng
    Composer and creator of the Grow Music Project
    By Carrin Tanaka

    Chris Tyng created the Grow Music Project with a “pay it forward” attitude, setting out to provide emerging artists and bands with the resources they need. Each round, Chris selects five artists from a pool of online applicants and invites them to his world-class studio for three days of mentorship and recording with industry veterans- all for free! The GMP has completed its second round, and recently launched a webseries called The Session Diaries that details the experience and growth of the artists. We spoke with Chris to learn more about this venture.

    You’ve stated that you created GMP in order to “pay it forward.” Who helped you early on in your career to inspire this act of kindness?

    I’ve been asked this question in a few GMP related interviews now – and it’s interesting – every time I respond, I realize even more people who helped me along when I was getting my start. One of the coolest things I’ve found, with almost anyone who has had the good fortune to have some success in this industry, is… Click to read the entire interview!

    Bruce Gilbert and his work on Orange Is the New Black were featured in The Wall Street Journal!

    Bruce gives details about the creative freedom he’s allowed as a music supervisor, the approach to this particular show, and his collaboration with Jenji Kohan. He also created a playlist [left] of his favorite songs from the first two seasons.

    “The show’s soundtrack comes together in a rather collaborative way, typically with Gilbert steering the ship and taking input from writers and creator Jenji Kohan. ‘I work a lot by feel,’ he says. ‘I feel like the emotion of what’s happening in the story determines more than anything. It was revealed early on that we had a lot more freedom because of the diverse, dynamic cast and the little vignettes that cut back into their lives before prison.’”

    Jun 17, 2014

    Auto Music, Brian Reitzell’s first solo album, is now available on iTunes!

    “‘Each song is an experiment that I just built up over time – ‘Auto Music’ isn’t a pop record by any stretch.’ [Brian explains] True to its title, the album actually became the score to Reitzell’s drive from his home to his studio and back every day. In the process, the nine instrumental compositions grew into an homage to the car-inspired krautrock grooves of Neu! and Kraftwerk, combining pulsing, repetitive electronics with organic nuance to evoke the 5 freeway in the same way those bands captured the autobahn.” – NY Times Blog

    May 12, 2014

    Erran Baron Cohen scored Just Before You Go, Courtney Cox’s directorial debut, which recently had its premiere at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival!

    “Courteney Cox proves her comedic timing extends beyond her acting chops in her directorial debut. Seann William Scott is Ted Morgan, a down-on-his-luck everyman who has decided that what life has to offer isn’t much. He gets motivated for the first (and the last) time to do himself in, but not before tying up a few loose ends back in his hometown. Enter a zany cast of characters, including Rob Riggle, Olivia Thirlby, and Garret Dillahunt, who quickly and inadvertently helps Ted discover that he’s not the only one who lives in a world that is not all sunshine and lollipops.” -Ashley Havey, Tribeca Film Festival

    In other news, The Ali G Show (2000-2004), scored by Erran, is back on the air on the FXX network! FXX has taken episodes of the original series, including ones that never aired in the US, and has reintroduced them to new audiences. Sacha Baron Cohen, Erran’s brother, has even filmed new material for the show!

    Erran has also written the music for The Infidel, The Musical, the stage adaptation of David Baddiel’s 2010 hit film. The musical will premiere October 15 at London’s Theatre Royal, Stratford East. Click to learn more!

    May 11, 2014

    Showtime’s Penny Dreadful, scored by Abel Korzeniowski, premieres tonight at 10pm!

    “While DEXTER brought bountiful blood and MASTERS OF HORROR occasionally lived up to its title, Showtime traded suspense for presumed intensity while exploiting the freedoms outside of the limits of broadcast television restrictions. The atmospheric PENNY DREADFUL however, just may be the series to pull Showtime into more serious horror territory, as long as future episodes make good on the potential of the impressively creepy pilot.

    Special acknowledgement should also go to Abel Korzeniowski, who provides an exceptionally fitting and wondrous score for the series." – Fangoria

    Mar 3, 2014

    Don’t miss the premiere of The Red Road, scored by Daniel Licht, on The Sundance Channel tonight at 9pm EST! This ambitious six-episode drama is a dark story full of mysterious twists and complex characters. Set in rural New Jersey, it focuses on a small Native American tribe called the Lanape and it’s conflicting relationship with the town and the police force investigating the murder of a college student. Jason Mamoa (Game of Thrones) provides a powerful presence alongside Julianne Nicholson (August: Osage County). Tom Sizemore, Lisa Bonet and Martin Henderson also star.

    This from Dan:

    “I am very proud of the score for The Red Road. My goal was to keep the music fresh and as cutting edge as the production and at every turn to do the unexpected. Using haunting, otherworldly strings and low churning pads I tried to highlight the inner turmoil of the characters and heighten the suspense.”

    Be sure to catch the premiere tonight! Meanwhile, watch Buzzfeed’s exclusive release of the first twelve minutes.
