ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
  The year was 2012. Don was in college studying music, pursuing his dream of becoming a composer. It was early in the year when one day, friend and fellow composer Ben Dawson came to Don with a proposition unlike any other…

  Dawson was making a short film and was hoping Don could write the music for it. Excited at the opportunity, Don accepted. What happened over the next five months was interesting, to say the least.

  At the time, Don didn’t have the proper equipment to score the film. Luckily, Ben did. Therefore, the two developed a process: Don would send piano recordings with commentary and instructions, and Ben would score, arrange, and record the music. The result? well, listen for yourself, and see what you think!

  The score to “My Dear Ralph” threads an interesting needle because it manages to cover a ton of emotions in a short amount of time without sounding campy or cheesy. For instance, take a listen to the ominous strings in “Take My Advice, Valentine”. Then, hear the Disney-like bliss found in “Annabel / A New Life”. For the best example, though, listen to the “Finale” and see that spectrum on full display.

All it takes is one listen, and you’ll know why this soundtrack is so important.
