Jann’s Voice Featured in Jeff Buckley Movie
A couple of months ago my friend and collaborator Gary Lucas (pictured left on electric guitar – photo by Burcu Ozturk) asked me if he could put my name forward for singing in a Jeff Buckley biopic… I said, “Yea, sure why not?” thinking nothing would probably come of it.
After receiving a phone call and auditioning for director Dan Algrant I got the job. I recorded vocals and guitar that same week. The following week Gary and I attended a private screening of the film here in New York City with none other than Al Pacino in attendance and sitting right next to me!
The movie stars Penn Badgley and Imogen Poots and will see its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this Sunday, Sept 9th. If you are in the area, there are additional screenings on Tuesday, Sept 11th and Friday, Sept 14th. You can find out more at the Offical Site for the film.
Stay tuned for more info…
Hope to see you at our New Album Preview shows with full band line-up starting tonight at 8 PM at Maxwell’s in Hoboken, NJ!
