Produced on a Micro-Budget ($5k) during the Pandemic, ‘Brave’ ended up being a Record that was not only commercially viable, but also exceeded the expectations of the film production company, particularly the outcome of the build at 03:01. ‘Brave’ went on to receive countless awards and acclaim, this included categories such as: Outstanding Song Written for Visual Media (Hollywood Music in Media Awards), Outstanding Vocal Performance, Best Original Song, Best Lyrics & Songwriting, Best Song Sung, Best Song for Film, & Best Music, with a 94% selection rating at film festivals worldwide. Throughout the Record, Jon was involved in all aspects of the creative and technical process, including vocal production. Due to lockdown, Jon approached the music with VSTs & poured additional focus into the Vocal Performance as well as heavily invested in technical aspects of the Record in the Mix & Mastering Phase to provide a higher sound quality & something which would be more commercial viable.
Jon worked tirelessly to write, produce and record this wonderful title track ‘BRAVE’, and the finished result, coupled with Pia Toscano’s soaring vocals, is nothing short of extraordinary for a young breakthrough musician.
Came across this on YouTube, found the production and lyrics enjoyable, especially the build around 02:45. Found the music quality crisp and clear, which was enjoyable to keep listening to.
