Never learning to read sheet music, law and business professional Deane Nesbitt Jr. has made a career in music
Los Angeles, CA – February 28, 2019 — Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Deane Nesbitt Jr. is a music composer with several years of experience in the industry. His latest project is one for the books. Recorded at Harlow Sound in Toronto, his latest work, “Soundtrack in the Sand” is set to be released on March 15th, 2019.
“Soundtracks in the Sand” was inspired by two short films that have Deane’s music as a soundtrack, “Change for Chimps” and “Legacy of War”. It contains the music from both films, as well as music from a short video, “Upbeat”, which has an engaging twist. The music shows African, Caribbean, Mexican and Celtic influences, as well as North American, including a couple influenced by the far north.
“Change for Chimps”, features Jane Goodall and won an award in the US for Most Uplifting Film, and an award in Canada for Best Family Film. “Legacy of War”, features veterans from World War II and original film footage from the war. “Legacy of War” was shown at the Canadian War Museum last November 11, as part of the remembrance ceremonies. With so much success in recent years, Deane is excited for the release of his new project “Soundtracks in the Sand”.
Although Deane has composed music for years, he does not read music. His unique background consists of practising law for 16 years, co-founding an investment management company and writing an illustrated history of a 1912 investment bank. Deane’s music has been aired on over 300 radio stations across the US. One American reviewer ranked his most recent project among the best 100 music CDs of 2015 and the best dramatic music of that year.
