INDIE FEATURE (UK) *NOW CLOSED*
Independent movie with very positive advance word of mouth.
SYNOPSIS: Contemporary drama/thriller about rivals in business with scores to settle.
SEEKING: Most of the music for the film has been completed. Some music cues will have to be dropped. At the moment only one needs to be found immediately: Looking for a contemporary singer/songwriter (male) with a uniquely powerful voice that carries intense emotion (both powerful and soft). Think George Ezra/Josh Groban/Morten Harket. Track lyrics need to convey "indecision", "emotional conflict", "sensitivity". Musically slightly mournful feel without being depressing. Would like it to be acoustic guitar led but with a full band backing.
FORMAT: 2 songs maximum.
