Executive Producer and show creator, Alan Ball, is extremely impressed with Barr’s score for the show. Ball recently expressed that “Nate’s score for True Blood continually impresses and surprise me, and one of the favorite parts of my job is driving out to his studio to hear his score cues, as I know I’m always in for a treat. His music, with its distinct and completely acoustic flavor, perfectly captures the mix of suspense, terror, romance, and regional authenticity that the show calls for. I know I can always count on him to take scenes which need that extra little bit of help and make them work better than I thought possible.”
Lisbeth Scott was raised as a classical pianist headed for a concert career practicing hours a day, until she ran away to California as soon as she could and began to discover her voice. Someone heard her singing and playing piano for a modern dance class in the hills of Idyllwild and suggested her voice for a score by composer Hans Zimmer. Scott’s uniquely moving and shiver-inducing voice has been heard on literally hundreds of films. John Williams wrote a 5 minute solo specifically for her in the score for Spielberg’s film “Munich”. She was the featured vocalist and co-lyricist for the John Debney score to the film “The Passion of the Christ” and she was the featured vocalist and songwriter for the Disney film “The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe”.
