whats the t onesheetI wrote music for What’s the T?, a documentary by director Cecilio Asuncion that explores lives of five transgender women.

No Place On Earth will premiere on History Channel 6pm ET / PT on Saturday, April 25th. The television version contains an additional segment “After the Wall”, which includes a new musical cue not in the theatrical version of the film.

The editors chose the cue from a batch of unused mockups I had created for the film version. It captured the mood of the post-war events so well that we decided to go ahead and record it with a string orchestra:

And here is the trailer for No Place On Earth:

My friend Tommy Osuna has finished an album I made a contribution playing bass. You can check out my bass playing, but Tommy’s guitar playing is the main attraction – especially on Tribal and Eagle.
