JBM's Original Motion Picture Soundtrack for the film "Lovers in a Dangerous Time".
The album features a cover of the Bruce Cockburn classic title track, along with 7 new tracks that where written specifically for the film by JBM.
JBM is the music of Jesse Marchant. His first record 'not even in July' was released on Partisan Records on July 27th 2010. Jesse was born in Montreal, Canada and has spent most of his adult life living in New York City and Los Angeles. While living in Los Angeles, JBM contributed music to the film 'Lovers in a Dangerous Time'.
'Lovers in a Dangerous Time' has been called a "... a wonderfully subtle love story that manages to wrestle grand themes of lost potential, jealousy, true love and the hard road to adulthood into a charming and low-key tale about childhood friends reuniting.” This would be the music that sets the mood for such grand themes.
“Marchant quietly released Not Even In July earlier this year and also did the soundtrack album for the movie Lovers In A Dangerous Time. Marchant's music is a haunting and beautiful collection of songs that bring to mind a little Jose Gonzalez, early Red House Painters and yes, even early-era James Taylor (you won't find any "Your SmilingFace" type songs on this one, though). Somber & reflective, intimate and at times gleefully hypnotic the album somehow manages to convey a subtle optimism that's heartfelt and world-wise. This is good stuff folks - a mostly acoustic ride, filled with gorgeous string arrangements and down-tempo melodies worthy of repeated visits.”
“An evocatively bitter cinematic breeze whistles around the bare Montreal trees as ambiguous acoustic guitar lines and dense strings doused in longing and haunting grandeur stare at you through the frost, setting a definite mood of comfortable solemnity before even the first word is uttered...In Marchant it seems we’ve found ourselves a new star in every sense.” - americanaUK
