Featuring Original Music by Jordan Shapiro

(April 24, 2013– Los Angeles, CA) – Lakeshore Records will release the Americana: Original Music From the Film Wish You Were Here digitally April 30, 2013. Jordan Shapiro composed the original score.

“Everyone was adamant that the score always emanate from an ‘Americana’ feel/foundation,” described Shapiro, who was the perfect choice to compose the music for Wish You Were Here. “I have always loved Ry Cooder, and have always aspired to play anything I could with a slide. I play pedal steel guitar, dobro, lap steel and some slide guitar, as well as some keys, acoustic guitar, mandolin, etc.”

Jordan Shapiro has played one instrument or another for as long as he can remember. With a long list of musical accomplishments including live and session work, producing/recording records for a wide range of artists and churning out his own "Organic meets New Technology" brand of music for consumption by various Television/Film production companies and Artists, Jordan has been keeping himself busy in his own studio, humbly dubbed "Average White Guy Studios" in Echo Park, CA.

Currently, concentrating on recording and film score work is his main passion, but he still enjoys playing live with a variety of artists including the Supersuckers and Jonny "Two Bags" Wickersham.

“This was my first full-length score,” said Shapiro. “I'll bet I scored the film three times over using different elements in different places trying to achieve something specific where it was needed! A few of these alternate cues are included in the Lakeshore release.”
Ten people, one RV, and a guerilla film road trip across the country. Wish You Were Here was shot on a nineteen-day tear across the US, from Santa Monica to Coney Island.
Wish You Were Here took a wing and a prayer production budget and made miracles happen. Locations were secured on the fly; moments before filming began. No budget, no permits, no time, no worries. The RV would be on to the next town before the dust settled: Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Utah, Aspen, Denver, Kansas, Nashville and Coney Island. From coast to coast, in a self contained studio on wheels.
Along the way, you’ll encounter Vegas Police who think your gunplay in a diner parking lot is the real thing, emerging from squad cars with guns drawn, until they spot the camera. You’ll stay in cheap motels, while spending other nights sleeping dangerously close to each other in a cramped RV. You’ll see some of the most beautiful landscapes in the United States, from Death Valley to Red Rock West, from the mountains of Colorado to the wheat fields of Kansas and the rolling hills of the Blue Ridge Parkway. You’ll skinny dip without permission in hotel swimming pools. You’ll breakdown on the side of the road. You’ll get off the RV to use a rest stop bathroom and not be discovered missing for two States. You’ll scooter on the parkway, you’ll play guitar in a Nashville honky-tonk, you’ll get kicked out of every bus station you try to film in but still get the shot. You’ll make the whole country your set, with a little help from your friends. You’ll stay up all night and you’ll shoot though the dawn. You can sleep when the movie is over.

Good Company Entertainment presents Wish You Were Here, available on iTunes now. The Americana: Original Music From The Film Wish You Were Here by Jordan Shapiro will be available digitally on April 30, 2013.
