Composer/Singer-songwriter Paul Brill's latest recording, HARPOONER, along with his original compositions for several award-winning films, TV series and two NPR themes show that youthful adventures as an herbal smokes salesman, street performer, valet, corporate errand boy, and even a marine biology instructor can serve the creative spirit well.
Paul has received 3 EMMY AWARD nominations for his scores for the films, "Full Battle Rattle" (National Geographic), "The Devil Came on Horseback" (Break Thru Films), and "The Trials of Darryl Hunt" (HBO), which was hailed by Variety as “memorably chilling, sounding notes of purest dread.”Young American Recordings recently released the Hunt soundtrack, curated by Brill, featuring selections from his score and contributions by Andrew Bird, M. Ward, Califone, and Mark Kozelek among many others.
Brill recently collaborated with Rock legends U2 on the HBO film, "Burma Soldier," composing a new string arrangement for an acoustic version of their classic song, "Walk On." He scored the hit documentary, "Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work" (IFC), the recently released "Page One: Inside the New York Times," as well as Christy Turlington Burns' directorial debut, "No Woman, No Cry," on which he collaborated with songwriter Martha Waignwright, and the film adaptation of the best-selling book, "Freakonomics" (Magnolia Pictures).
Brill is currently the composer for the acclaimed A+E television programs “The First 48” and "Steven Seagal: Lawman," and dozens of films for MTV, The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), History Channel, National Geographic, Discovery Channel, and PBS, among others

"Here is a letter from my lonelier self / to the one that's in love once again / I couldn't find you so I thought that I would tell / you a few things with my favorite blue pen." So begins Amber Rubarth's fifth album, A Common Case of Disappearing. Grand prize winner of NPR's prestigious Mountain Stage New Song Contest, Rubarth writes songs with a courageous vulnerability so personal that it touches the universal. Produced by Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Norah Jones, Kings of Leon), the album debuted at No. 13 on iTunes' songwriter chart and features duets with Jason Reeves and Jason Mraz.
Rubarth has toured extensively throughout the US, Europe and Japan including appearances at Carnegie Hall and the Lincoln Center Atrium, sharing stages with many eminent artists including Emmylou Harris, Loudon Wainwright III, Jason Mraz, Kenny Loggins, Colin Hay, Dave Eggar and Lisa Loeb. Her songs have attracted enthusiastic praise from NPR, The Huffington Post, BBC Radio and Acoustic Guitar Magazine, and a live recording at legendary Sun Studios now airing nationwide on PBS.
Rubarth also composes for films, most recently working with Paul Brill for the highly acclaimed Sundance Film Festival winner Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work. She also collaborates with Alex Wong as one half of Brooklyn buzz band The Paper Raincoat, an iTunes Indie Spotlight chosen as Paste Magazine's "Best of What's Next."
