Lead Song in a Major TV Movie

Post by IslandBoy » Thu Apr 28, 2011 10:06 am

Last year when I came back to pro music after a 15-year layoff to raise my family, one month later (besides my 1st Hawaii Music Award) I got the lead song in the thriller "Deadly Honeymoon" on the Lifetime Movie Network, opening beach/wedding scene. Almost two minutes of on-screen time which is very very good these days. I wrote the song, vox, gtrs, bass, drums/percussion and my music partner did vox, keys, brass. We both did mixing/mastering.

It's the number one requested movie on LMN and is airing again next week May 3 8PM EST, May 4 12AM EST, and May 22 8PM EST in case ya wanna check it out. Here's the song "Another Day in Paradise:" http://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_4676604 Enjoy 8-)

This movie is airing again Friday June 19 at 10am EDT on the Lifetime Movie Network. Checkout and hear why this song was used in this scene. (Over 2 mins worth of song). It helps set the tone of a romantic but borderline wild wedding on the beach in Hawaii. The music supes were actually fighting over this song and another of my songs for this slot. Hope you like it.
