Says Matley: “I love the way Ricky Staub tells stories, so working with him again on Concrete Cowboy was very special. I wanted the score to serve as the musical spirit for the characters who are all from different backgrounds but come together for the same two reasons: community and riding horses. To achieve this, I decided to lean on solo instruments to create a more raw yet visceral sound.”

When fifteen-year-old Cole (Caleb McLaughlin) is expelled from school in Detroit, he is sent to North Philadelphia to live with Harp (Idris Elba), his estranged father. Harp finds solace in rehabilitating horses for inner city cowboys at the Fletcher Street Stables, a real-life black urban horsemanship community that has provided a safe haven for the neighborhood residents for more than 100 years. Torn between his growing respect for his father’s community and his reemerging friendship with troubled cousin Smush (Jharrel Jerome), Cole begins to reprioritize his life as the stables themselves are threatened by encroaching gentrification.
