JT Daly and The Blood Orchestra
Honored to have been able to work with JT Daly & The Blood Orchestra on my short film "Blood & Oil." JT is an incredible musician who has a passion for composing for film. Music is one of my favorite pieces in cinema so getting to help craft the music was a real pleasure. I was very clear from the beginning what music influenced me & what I invisioned for the short film. JT knew exactly what I was going for and nailed the song after only 1 pass! It is currently in the top 10 classical songs on ITUNES!
A big thank you to JT and members of The Blood Orchestra, for your unbelievable talent. You all created a beautiful song & my film wouldn't be what it is without you! Paul Moak who let us record in his studio "The Smoakstack" & for mixing the final song. One of the best parts of this story is that we all ride in the same group The Blackbirds. Both JT & Paul are also featured in the short film itself. I love how it all worked out the way it did.
