Winner of Best Director from the National Board Of Review, ‘Lady Bird’ is actor-turned-director Greta Gerwig‘s directorial debut featuring compositions from Grammy Nominee Jon Brion (‘Punch-Drunk Love’, ‘Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind’, ‘Magnolia’, ‘ParaNorman’ and ‘I Heart Huckabees’)..
One of the most successful releases of the year starring Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalf, Tracy Letts, Beanie Feldstein, Lucas Hedges and Timothée Chalamet, the semi-autobiographical coming of age tale is about a young, rebellious woman living in Sacramento, California and the constraints studying at a catholic high school.
As a fan of Brion’s work Gerwig naturally brought him in, her vision for the soundtrack was that the music needed to be present and structured. Brion’s trademark orchestral flourishes throughout bring Gerwig’s personal story to life with piano and string led instrumentals that are melodic. The score is warm with an innocence that, at times, has an underlying adolescence and playfulness.
Known for his songwriting with The Grays and Jellyfish, Jon Brion has also produced records for Kanye West, Fiona Apple, Rufus Wainwright, Robyn Hitchcock, Sky Ferreira and is a well-known collaborator with Evan Dando and Elliot Smith.
Fire Soundtracks and Lakeshore Records release ‘Lady Bird’ for the first time on limited edition white vinyl, standard LP and CD.
