BETWEEN THE MILES – LA Premiere


Last spring I was asked if I wanted to write something for an independent film about teen homelessness. They had a very specific idea of what they wanted. I spent a lot of time working on a song called “Can’t Bring Me Down,” turned it in weeks late, and heard nothing. And then, something! They liked it and it’s in the movie. How about that. Come join me and the filmmakers at the LA Premiere this Sunday at The Crest Westwood Theater:
