I have been writing songs and working on music for a very long time. Nashville is full of people who came to achieve their dreams of music. Whether songwriting, producing, or performing music, Nashville is an amazing musical town. I didn’t come here for that. I actually came here to work on video production, but as anyone who writes music can tell you, you never give it up.
Over 5 years ago when I saw Dr. Horrible’s Sing-along Blog, I was absolutely in love with the style. For anyone not acquainted (shame on you), Dr. Horrible was a three part series, initially released online, that featured Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion, and Felicia Day. It was funny, sweet, sad… honestly it was everything that we have come to expect from it’s creator, Joss Whedon. He was able to make a very intriguing and beautiful story using a very low budget, and it just went to show that you don’t need a lot of money to tell an incredible story, and write really great music, as long as you have heart.
I have always been a fan of zombie stuff. From 28 Days Later to The Walking Dead, the current zombie craze doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon. A lot of times, zombies are used simply as a vehicle to tell a bigger story. The Walking Dead is a great example of this. As anyone who watches knows, the zombies aren’t the stars of the show as much as, “how are our survivors going to get along with these other survivors and each other?” My story in Hungry Hearts the Musical is very similar in that I am trying to tell a love-triangle love story, and using music to try and add to the emotion of the story.
All music is written by me, and the amazing David John will be producing the tracks. Go check out his scoring website here: http://www.musosolus.com. I am very proud of how the title track has turned out, and I can’t wait to get more songs recorded and to finish telling the story.
