Working Man Soundtrack Released
WORKING MAN, is a classic story for our contemporary world, exploring the lives of factory workers in a small Rust Belt town after their plant is closed. Starring 80-year-old veteran character actor Peter Gerety (THE WIRE), Billy Brown (HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER) and two-time Oscar nominee Talia Shire (ROCKY, THE GODFATHER), the film is a true hymn to perseverance, healing, and forgiveness. You can check out the trailer here which I also scored!
We've been thoroughly stunned by the reviews that have been accorded the film over the last few months from truly landmark critics, including Richard Roeper at the Chicago Sun-Times, Pete Hammond at Deadline, Pulitzer nominee Matt Zoller Seitz at RogerEbert.com, Stephen Farber at the Hollywood Reporter, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and Chicago Tribune.
The movie is currently available on Amazon, iTunes, and any cable-subscription pay-per-view, and I do hope you'll check it out. For those of you who have already seen it, THANK YOU for your support, and if you feel inclined, please leave a review and rating on Rotten Tomatoes or IMDB - your opinion makes such a difference in terms of helping get more eyes on a little indie film like ours. Adding the soundtrack to your playlists in Spotify or Apple Music also helps the likelihood of it being placed in a bigger playlist that features other similar scores and gives us a broader audience!
The score features performances by my good friend, Ashley Jarmack on flute and clarinet, as well as my good friend Matias Ambroji-Torres on cello. They helped immensely in bringing the score to life. We had a very quick turn around and without the expert guidance of director Robert Jury, Producers, Clark Peterson, Lovell Holder, and Maya Emelle, along with the help of my mentor, John Swihart, we had a clear vision of what we wanted the soundscape to be. I wouldn't have been able to do it without their vision!
