Behind the Scenes / Recording Music for The Movie "Greater"
"Greater" Hits Theaters January 29th
In the Control Room at Haxton Road Studios talking through the performance/soundtrack with musicians and Director/Co-Writer David Hunt for the movie, "Greater."
We record a lot of music at Haxton Road Studios. We've had many artists both local and from out of state come in and record with us. Music has always been a very powerful tool used to spread a message. Music combined with video and a compelling story takes it to a whole other level.
The experience with recording some of the music for the movie "Greater" was powerful. I remember standing there listening to what was going on in the room and helping produce some of the musical aspects and all of a sudden, the moment happened for me. I'm watching playback on the screen while recording a song with Bob Brumley playing a song on my 1937 Gibson Acoustic Guitar in the live room. This wasn't just any song, but the most recorded gospel song in history, "I'll Fly Away." It dawned on me; this man's father wrote this song and it changed the world. It changed music. It shaped culture. It was a very meaningful moment for me at the studio seeing this song performed by Bob. Thanks to the Brumley family for sharing that moment with us!
That song added into the movie "Greater" was just amazing. Some of the reviews already coming in mention the same thing.
Be sure to look at your theater listings for Jan 29th and go see "Greater!" -Neil
