“Richey’s embodies a bicycle as driven by Venus herself, full of peddling, uptempo rhythm, bell-ringing percussion and effortlessly gliding melody that knows just how to hit its sneaky, jokey bumps in the right fashion, while also playing some hurt hearts.” (Daniel Schweiger, AssignmentX) Read the full article at AssignmentX.
When a leading music journalist sings a composer’s praises, you pay attention. Described as “sweetly hands-on” by notable Film Music Journalist Daniel Schweiger, Girl On A Bicycle‘s soundtrack composer Craig Richey is someone you could depend on to deliver the aural emotions that could only enhance a film. Besides Girl, Lakeshore Records also released these soundtracks composed by Richey: Answers To Nothing, The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters and Wonderful World.
Craig Richey’s latest soundtrack album, Girl On A Bicycle, is about an Italian tour bus operator, Paolo (played by Vincenzo Amato) who proposes to his true love, Greta (played by Nora Tschirner). Due to a series of unfortunate and comical events, including a guilty conscience, Paolo ends up caring for a French girl, Cécile (played by Louise Monot), with whom he grew an infatuation and subsequently runs into with his tour bus. The fact that she is a single mother with two children only complicates the matter further.
