State of Pride

I had the immense honor of co-scoring the new documentary “State of Pride” with my dear friend Allyson Newman.  Directed by Oscar-winning filmmakers Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, the film looks at what Pride means to people today, 50 years after the Stonewall Riots.

“State of Pride” is now streaming on YouTube, the first of three documentaries being made available to watch without a subscription for Pride Month.

Enjoy!

Dear You

On average 115 Americans die from opioid overdoses every day. I had the privilege of scoring this short film which highlights the opioid epidemic’s devastating effect on America’s youth.  Directed by Kathryn Prescott, “Dear You” portrays the human story of isolation and loneliness caused by addiction that is so rarely seen.

The Akron Holy War

Akron poster

Continuing my collaboration with Anthony Fanelli (Spare Change, Chapters of Horror), The Akron Holy War tells the story of one of the most unique sports rivalries in the country.  Two high schools in Akron, Ohio have enrolled students from the same neighborhoods, streets and families for over 60 years and the annual football game draws a crowd to rival many professional teams.

The Akron Holy War is now available on Amazon Video!

And check out the soundtrack on iTunes or Apple Music!

“How to Be a Latin Lover”

In theaters this Friday!!

I had the pleasure of working with my friend and colleague Craig Wedren again by writing additional music along with orchestrating and conducting the score.  This funny, sweet comedy, directed by Ken Marino, stars Eugenio Derbez, Salma Hayek, Rob Lowe, and Kristen Bell in the story of a man who finds himself dumped after 25 years of marriage – a man who made a career of seducing rich older women – and must move in with his estranged sister.
