Daniel Schweiger Lauds ‘Girl On A Bicycle’ Composer Craig Richey

“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.

Lakeshore Records: Soundtracks By Craig Richey

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.
