Silva Screen Records Presents Score From History's HATFIELDS & MCCOYS

Silva Screen Records presents HATFIELDS & MCCOYS. Composer John Debney and Tony Morales' Emmy Nominated score for director Kevin Reynold's historical epic.

Featuring top Hollywood talent, the series is based on a true story about two feuding families who nearly launched a war between Kentucky and West Virginia. Starring Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton in the main roles, the three part series earned 5 Emmy Awards.

Co-written by John Debney and Tony Morales, the score weaves an updated classic western sound with rich melodies and Appalachian instruments. Simultaneously modern and classic, the music perfectly complements the gritty Civil War images.

"While the prospect of writing the score for Hatfields & McCoys intrigued us from the beginning, once we actually saw a few scenes we knew this was a project we wanted to be a part oF. Early creative discussions hinged on creating a memorable score that honored the time and region while maintaining a contemporary sound. The use of Appalachian instruments was a natural choice, but it took some experimenting to come up with the right balance of traditional and contemporary elements. We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed writing."
- Tony Morales

With over 100 scores to his credit, ranging from Iron Man, Cutthroat Island, Predators to Oscar nominated biblical epic Passion of the Christ, John Debney is well known for working in a variety of genres, collaborating and blending symphonic orchestra with a wide range of world instruments to create a unique world of sound.
