Oxyana Soundtrack

– Music Mastering & Mixing –

Recorded and mixed by Evan P. Donahue (with director Sean Dunne) at Jonny Fritz’ house in Nashville (aka ‘The Fritz Carlton”) – the soundtrack to Oxyana is made up of raw, sorrowful performances by the Jonny Fritz band, featuring Deer Tick frontman John McCauley on guitar (‘Overture’) and vocals (‘Willow Garden’). For both the film itself and the soundtrack, I handled mastering the tracks for release. The soundtrack adds 3 bonus songs from the sessions, not heard in the film – first, an instrumental (edited & mixed by yours truly) called ‘Cat Funeral’, second is a masterful cover of Merle Haggard’s ‘Silver Wings’ performed by Josh Hedley, and last – a cover of the surf-rock classic ‘Sleepwalk’ performed by John McCauley.

Sean Dunne’s debut feature-length documentary, “Oxyana” is an intimate portrait of a small West Virginian town that has been fighting a losing battle with addiction to prescription pills.

“Oxyana” was selected to premiere in the World Documentary competition at the 2013 TriBeCa Film Festival on April 19th, 2013. It went on to win the prize for Best New Documentary Director as well as a Special Jury Mention for Best Documentary.
