The Grammy-nominated, Emmy Award-winning, and Juilliard-educated Bowers has created for Bad Hair a compelling array of New Jack Swing songs, straight out of the late 1980s and early 1990s, balanced with a nuanced and richly textured score laced with such elements as ambient synth foreboding, jazz-infused ruminations, cacophonous histrionics, and Penderecki-infused conversations, among other things. – Vehlinggo
Join host Aaron Vehling (Vehlinggo.com) for an episode of the Lakeshore podcast, ON CUE WITH… Kris Bowers! With the recent release of his score to Justin Simien’s horror-comedy, Bad Hair, we’re certain film music fans are curious about how Kris created his exciting new score as well as how he and director Justin Simien came up with all the New Jack Swing-inspired tracks which sit firmly and perfectly in the film’s late-eighties period. And if you’ve already watched the movie on Hulu, you may be curious about that music video song, “I Get It,” performed by Kelly Rowland; it’s also on the album. Listen to the podcast below.
