There is something about finding the perfect song for our public television series that is so gratifying. We have been really lucky to work with many talented musicians over the past eight seasons, so I thought I would highlight a few of my favorite music cues. It’s kind of like trying to pick your favorite kind of ice cream or memory. They are all amazing, but a few stick out in your mind…Here are some of my fav music cues:
Season Three, Episode Eight I remember when this Federico Aubele song was placed that I was stoked about where it was going. It just seemed like the perfect song for those early morning drives and eating breakfast in the RV.
Season One, Episode Three at 7:28The Legend driving through Colorado to Xavier Rudd’s “Lap Jam” is still one of my all time favorite cues. It was my introduction into Roadtrip Nation music and still has a huge influence on the sound today.
Season Seven, Episode Seven My favorite songs are the ones that I can picture placing before I even know what the episodes look like. And that’s exactly what happened when the band The Dustbowl Revival submitted the song “Marching On.” I think it works pretty well going into New Orleans.
