Scruffy, Indie folk-rock from Transylvania

That is right! I have some songs (8, to be precise) included on the soundtrack of the soon-to-be released feature film LIE WITH ME.

I won’t keep you in suspense, watch the first musical footage from the film below:

You want to know more about the film? Well, check out LIE WITH ME on IMDB to find out more (and keep watching as new information gets out before the release).

Director: Jamison Brandi
Writers: Jamison Brandi (written and adapted by), Jason Brandi (written and adapted by)
Based on a play by: Keith Bridges

“Haunted by a family secret of incest and harboring the news of her dying mother, an estranged woman journeys home to bury her dark past forever.”

Jamison Brandi has contacted me early this year proposing a collaboration… and I immediately accepted. He has chosen a few songs of mine to be included in the film he was directing, and I offered to re-record the acoustic versions that he wanted. It was a scary thought, as I never released music like this, I always spend my time producing the tracks before I send them to sea. I am glad this project came together as it did, and I can hardly wait to see the film, it’s all I can add at the moment.

Please stay close because there will be new material coming very very soon, and the trailer will be shared on my website as well.

Lie With Me also has a website, so you can keep close to them (and you should) or/and follow the IMDB page that I shared at the beginning of this post.

Until further notice…

Adios.

110 km​/​h

I finally got to publish “110 km/h“, the song I’ve featured on with singer/songwriter/friend Murányi Tóni on my own music page.

Big hugs to Iris Heuer for her photograph “Travel Into The Past” which we’ve used to create the artwork for the song. We are still working on getting a video produced for this – hopefully this summer.

Listen to the song below:

The Story Behind The Song

Murányi Tóni has sent over an amazing demo back in the summer of 2011 and has asked me to feature on his final song, called “110km/h”. The first time that guitar riff blasted out of my speakers I knew I had to take part.

It took a while for us to actually begin working on the song (or, more precisely: it took ME a lot of time to get started), but in November of the same year we’ve recorded and mixed the entire track. He already had his parts written and recorded when he first approached me so I was expected to write my own parts and record them in my own home studio. We have worked for about one month on the song, together, emailing session files back and forth, recording and re-recording every track as we went along.

…aaand the artwork for 110km/h:

Tóni’s parts are in Hungarian, in case you didn’t get that – and mine are in English – as you’ve surely noticed.

We’ve published “110km/h” in May 2012 and we are still working on producing a video for this little gem. I couldn’t be happier to have “110km/h” in my portfolio, I have a lot of respect for Tóni’s songwriting and I am really really glad to have had the chance to do this.

Besides, Tóni and I have known each other for a few years, as there aren’t too many young singer-songwriters here in Transylvania, so it was just a matter of time before we made something together.

New song by Murányi Tóni & Indie Folker

Dear friends!

I have featured on a song together with my good friend and songwriter extraordinaire, Murányi Tóni. I have been talking about this collaboration since last year (we’ve recorded this tune in November, 2011 actually) and I couldn’t be happier to finally show you what we’ve made.

The song is called “110km” and it is about driving.

Anyway, here it is:

We haven’t really discussed any details regarding the language or actual content of the song as far as the lyrics are concerned, instead we just recorded our parts and worked on it from there. Tóni’s parts are in Hungarian, in case you didn’t get that – and mine are in English, as you’ve surely noticed.

We are still talking about maybe shooting a video for this, but we’ve decided to make the song public in the meantime.

Tóni and I have known each other for a few years, there aren’t too many young singer-songwriters here in Transylvania, so it was just a matter of time before we made something together, I guess. I really like his take on contemporary folk rock so I’m really glad we did this.

If you want to take a listen to some of Tóni’s past works, you can download most of his stuff from his website. Just click here to go straight to the Murányi Tóni music download page.

We have made a video for the song “In The Dumpster Light (Mickey’s Song)” from “The Crack (Musical)” album that I have released on March 14 on the Indie Folker music page.

The video is a re-arrangement of some old rural civil defense TV spots from 1965. We’ve tried mixing all that footage in a way that tells a different story than the one it was originally meant to.

It is the one below…



In the meantime, you can still download the entire “The Crack (Musical)” album for free. AND you can even grab a handy widget to stream on your very own website, blog or social profile space. The widget is the one below, and you can customize it if you just click on “share”.

There will be more videos coming for songs from this album so I urge you to subscribe to the Indie Folker Youtube channel if you want to be informed of when this is happening – this is the subscribe link: http://bit.ly/tSgBsF
