This short film features a few of my songs. Sponsored by Skoda.
Directed by Scott Hardesty, “Forty-three countries down, Hera Van Willick rides her bicycle across continents, fully self-supported. This is her journey and what she has learned along the way.”
A production studio I’m part of, Latch & Key, is working on a documentary series sponsored by Range Clothing. Here’s the promo with my music.
“Made of Light is a brand focused series of documentaries created by Latch & Key. It’s a snapshot of someone’s journey in pursuit of their dreams and how they arrived at where they are today – what made them stronger, what was their greatest loss or their greatest achievement and how they overcame what they thought was impossible to achieve.”
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”
Music for “Place of Peace” Sitka project.
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.”
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.
This is a trailer for a project called AVOICE4PEACE, using my song Birth.
“Imagine if everyone - all over the world - just stopped what they were doing, and sang?
That was the dream of three musicians who traveled to Kenya in search of music and peace. Where they found one, they found the other; and an entire world waiting for a response to violence.
A film by Bud Simpson.
Produced by U.S. Embassy, Nairobi, the American Choral Directors Association, Music Celebrations International, and Jefferson M. Braswell.”
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.”
These are 2 songs from a soundtrack I composed for a documentary called “America’s Pastor” about the life of Billy Graham.
I worked with very talented string players a fiddler on this one. We were trying to achieve a sense of his roots in the Appalachian Mountains.
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
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.
