Ten GarageBand.com Artists Selected for Major Indie Doc Soundtrack
SEATTLE, Wash. — As a co-producer and music supervisor of the buzz-heavy indie flick “A Lawyer Walks into a Bar” (Camel’s Back Films), Evan Fitzmaurice had to match top-quality film content with a similarly powerful soundtrack. He began by looking online for original music aggregators, and was impressed by GarageBand’s “excellent interface and search function.”
“I compiled around 150 songs… which I whittled down based on input to around 30 bands… many of those finalists I located on GarageBand,” he said.
Some of the GarageBand (GB) artists selected are top-charters, others were lesser known.
“All of the music in our film is of the highest production value and songwriting quality and every one of the bands deserves to break nationally,” Fitzmaurice told us, adding that “in several cases, they are already doing so.”
“Assuming you have the ideas and talent,” he said, “you can become a one-man or one-woman marketing machine… posting your work to a Web site or to a place such as GarageBand for the world to find… if you are savvy… that can allow you to compete online as if you were signed to a top label with all of the marketing resources of a major label.”
The film is “a lurid tale of layers and lawsuits and America’s fascination with both” and probes the matter documentary-style with a cast of characters ranging from law professors to comedians. A Laywer Walks into a Bar is screening next week in Austin, TX an official selection of the SXSW film festival. Keep an eye out for the movie and an ear out for the soundtrack!
Here’s a full list of the GB artists and songs selected for the film:
Mountain Mirrors – “Afterlife”
Phantom Music Box – “I.D. Sequence”
Draz – “Sunday Rain”
