Lucky Spurs is a theme composed for the film written by Rick Padilla. The script itself was based on a short story by cowboy author, JPS Brown. I had the privilege of working with Joe Brown starting in 2015. I took trips to Patagonia, AZ from 2016 to 2022 staying on different ranches near the border with Mexico. I found the land and people rich with character and pride. The land itself is one of the few places in the world where I could feel something just standing there. I can feel the earth vibrate and hum. 

 

Through working with Rick Padilla on a number of film projects in Patagonia, Los Angeles as well as my place in Raleigh, I composed and produced thematic music including main title themes as well as character and sub themes. Lucky Spurs is a main title theme. When working with Rick, I would frequently compose music that he would listen to while writing the screen plays. I would then complete the music as the story would develop. This has been an amazing adventure.
