During production for the short film ‘Portrait’ I approached DMV (DC,Maryland, Virginia) based singer-songwriter Nila Kay about the possibility of writing and producing a soundtrack EP to coincide with the film. I was stoked when Nila obliged and even more so when, after numerous meetings, calls and emails I heard the final rough material that she had written which perfectly reflected what I was seeking to capture with the sparse, poetic quality of the film. ‘Portrait’ which stars actors Emilio Delgado and Samantha Lawrence revolves around Seth, a marginally successful artist’s skewed world and his infatuation with the beautiful Katrina whom he meets by chance at a gallery exhibit of his work. Here’s the lead single from the EP ‘Portrait’ ‘Sleepwlkng’: 

The EP was recorded at Hudson Street Sound in Annapolis, MD and was recently released on Itunes and other music outlets. Pick up the album here: http://itunes.apple.com/album/id1050267938?ls=1&app=itunes


Thanks to all the cast and the production crew who created a special magic with the film which was an official selection of the inaugural 2015 Jamaica Film Festival
