Varèse Sarabande release the soundtrack to Wheeler, featuring original songs and score composed by Stephen Dorff and performed by Dorff as Wheeler Bryson. The movie tells the story of an aspiring musician from Kaufman, Texas, who travels to Nashville with the lifelong dream of trying his hand at country music. By embodying the title character under prosthetic make up, actor Stephen Dorff successfully infiltrates Music City and takes his character on an authentic singer / songwriter journey. With the help of key allies on the ground, Wheeler converses with real people in real locations, with every musical number performed live. The line between reality and fiction blurs as Wheeler chases his dream in this touching tribute to old school country legends...
Whether you've seen Wheeler or not, Stephen Dorff's album represents a loving tribute to Country and Western music. And even if, like me, you're not a huge fan of the genre, you'll find it hard not to fall in love with some of the songs here.
The album contains 14 tracks (48 min, 02 sec), with obvious highlights including the single 'Pour Me out of this Town'; 'She's Only 20'; and 'Rainbow Slide'.
It's a wonderful musical souvenir of the movie as well as an impressive collection of songs in its own right.
