Deidra & Laney Rob a Train

Deidra and Laney Rob a Train

 

Deidra & Laney is the story of two sisters (Ashleigh Murray, Rachel Crow) who turn to train robbery to make ends meet after their mother is arrested and thrown in jail.

 

This film is the second I’ve scored (with co-composer Joel Pickard) for director Sydney Freeland. Syd and I were paired at the Sundance Institute during my fellowship, and like our previous production, Drunktown’s Finest, Deirdra & Laney premiered at The Sundance festival.

 

The score finds me channeling The Meters at times, and I was lucky enough to work with the drummer extraordinaire Scott Amendola on this one.
