Could the Grassroots soundtrack be the iconic movie soundtrack of the 20-teens? The film, which is still shooting in Seattle about poet and music critic Grant Cogswell, announced that KEXP’s John “John in the Morning” Richards, in collaboration with Amy Lindsey and Alethia Austin, will be shaping the soundtrack. The trio will use local musicians, including Mt. St. Helen’s Vietnam Band and others, to represent “the sound of Seattle 2001.” Richards explains, “The soundtrack is a love affair with Seattle…the kind of music Grant would have been listening to, mixed in with some of the best indie bands playing in Seattle today.” Music supervisor, Dave Meinert, adds, “It’s awesome to have these three working on Grassroots…together they have the unique knowledge and ability to bring the movie the great music it deserves.” To learn more about the music supervisors, follow the link.
