My music in partnership with Future Perfect Music
This is a short directed by the Roos Brothers. Set to Quinn Gunnar by me.
“Jojo Whitaker came to live with Doug & ReChelle Evans as a misunderstood boy. After welcoming him into their rugby family, it didn’t take long for Jojo to realize his potential. Through the Grand Junction Griffins Rugby Club, the Evans’ have provided futures for many young men like Jojo and built a forever bond of family among Griffins”
Worked with Shannon Vandivier and Sitka on this piece. The music in the first 10 mins is mine. Not the This Will Destroy You track :)
“After 20 years on the front lines that left multiple gunshot and shrapnel wounds across his body, Ret. Master Sergeant Farmer reached a breaking point. While trying to rebuild his life, he rediscovered a gift from a friend that led him down an unexpected path to healing.”
I did custom music for this ad with director Josh Hayward and LocalBoy.TV for broadcast.
The ad is for Mclaren Health Care in Michigan.
This film captures the human connection and bond created by Canada’s well-known craft & symbol, the canoe. Through the stories of five paddlers across the province of Ontario, Canada - a majestic background both in it’s landscape & history - the film underscores the strength of the human spirit and how the canoe can be a vessel for creating deep and meaningful connections.
Directed by Goh Iromoto, featuring a couple of my songs.
Our music video is finally released! Planets - “Reflections”
New Instrumental Album!
Worked with my friends Christian Haberkern (guitar) and Brian Sanders (cello) on this one. It tells the story of a traveler through space and time. Inspired by this poem by Tolkien:
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
An interesting piece on Kermode bears set to my song Honest Try.
“The raven left every tenth bear white, just to remind us of when the earth was covered in glacier,” says Marven Robinson of the Gitga'at First Nation in British Columbia, Canada. The white bears are known as Moksgm'ol to the people of the First Nations, and as Kermode bears to scientists. They aren’t polar bears or albino bears—rather, they’re black bears born with a double recessive gene that turns their fur white.
New EP! Also on Spotify and iTunes!
A cool video called West in the Winter set to my song “Birth”
“Over the course of 14 days we logged 7300 miles, an average of 8 hours driving every day, and traveled to some of my favorite landscapes in the US to put the X5R through its paces. We slept in the back of my Toyota Prius almost every night to save time and money. This project was an absolute blast!” - Ian Cresswell
Finally, I have sheet music for Sun Through the Clouds.
Nimia used one of my songs, “What We Used to Be” for their 2016 Showreel. This film pieces together footage from 40 filmmakers, represented by Nimia.
I was really inspired by the feel and colors of autumn. So I wrote the music without expecting to have any singing, but I kept finding myself singing the chorus, so… I wrote some words and called it a song.
You can probably guess the poet that inspired some of the lyrics.
North Face (Sherpa Productions) used a couple of my songs (“Dawn of Time” and “Monks Chanting”) in this fascinating piece.
In 1999, on an expedition in Tibet, team alpine climbers Conrad Anker and Kris Erickson lost their good friend and exploration companion, Alex Lowe, to an avalanche that narrowly missed Conrad himself. To preserve Alex’s honor, Conrad and Kris establish and send the Nutcracker, a new ice climb route in Hyalite Canyon, Montana. Their story, and climb, are captured here by Sherpas Cinema.
My music was used in this story in which Philip and Raymond Leung tell the lesser-known tale of their family business, Camel, the prominent vacuum flask and steelware maker. A superstar brand staying true to the Hong Kong spirit, it’s a story of ingenuity, pragmatism, and perseverance, spanning over half a century under the Lion Rock.
My song “Factory Cue” starts at :44.
