Composer John Debney and Tony Morales’ soundtrack to director Kevin Reynold’s historical epic HATFIELDS & McCOYS has arrived on iTunes via Silva Screen Records. The miniseries, based on a true story about two feuding families who nearly launched a war between Kentucky and West Virginia, made it’s debut over Memorial Day week on The History Channel. Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton star.

hatfields1While the prospect of writing the score for Hatfields & McCoys intrigued us from the beginning, once we actually saw a few scenes we knew this was a project we wanted to be a part of. Early creative discussions hinged on creating a memorable score that honored the time and region while maintaining a contemporary sound. The use of Appalachian instruments was a natural choice, but it took some experimenting to come up with the right balance of traditional and contemporary elements. We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed writing.
