WHAT MEN WANT – [Download/Listen]
Here Tyler impressively handles all of the instruments himself to swing with rambunctious, R&B energy for drums, organ, bass and vibes that has its heroine play her newly gained macho info like a harmonica. – Daniel Schweiger, Film Music Magazine
Paramount Pictures presents WHAT MEN WANT, now playing in select theaters (get tickets).
NIGHTFLYERS – [Download/Listen]
Score by Will Bates.
With percolating synths at once 80’s retro and state of the art, Bates’ mesmerizingly weird musical voyage once again pushes the boundaries of TV scoring for a show that will continue in the music’s imagination.
