This year, Lakeshore Records has curated a new playlist of select tracks featuring score cues by the world’s top and rising women composers! You may already know most of these talented individuals who have made a name for themselves in the film, television, and video game music worlds. You may have missed their latest soundtrack releases.

For this year’s Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we recognize composers from these communities who have released film and television scores over the years. Are you a fan of Nathan Matthew David (Slice), Aska Matsumiya (37 Seconds, I’m Your Woman, Selah and The Spaces), Vivek Maddala (Asian Americans), Gingger Shankar (And She Could Be Next), Amritha Vaz (“Home“), or Wendy Wang (Man Up)? If these soundtracks below have slipped your radar, we’ve provided links and music players for you. Also, be sure to watch the associated films which span from drama to documentary to comedy.
Lakeshore Records has released I’m Your Woman—Amazon Original Motion Picture Soundtrack featuring striking music by Aska Matsumiya (“Betty”, After Yang, “Selah and the Spades”). The main theme founded on a minimal, yet melodic piano anchoring the score transforms unexpectedly into a much darker work, as synths and strings are added, providing a tension-filled backdrop to the modern noir thriller. See the album tracklist and purchase link below.
The Amazon Original directed by Julia Hart and starring Rachel Brosnahan, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Arinzé Kene, with Frankie Faison and Bill Heck is now streaming on Prime Video.
“Aska Matsumiya’s subtle piano score oscillates between ominous and searching (with echoes of David Shire’s ‘The Conversation’ compositions), pointing toward an enigma that requires the story’s full arc to settle in.” – IndieWire
For Women’s Equality Day, we are shining an extra spotlight on Women Composers! Why? Although this day commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920, granting women the right to vote, we take this opportunity to feature just a sample of the talented film and television composers who exist and deserve a seat at the table in the soundtrack world.
