Composer Scott Brasher Scores First Feature Film ‘Billy: The Early Years’

Posted in News on October 30, 2008

Nashville-based BMI composer Scott Brasher has penned the original score for new biopic Billy: The Early Years, which traces the roots of evangelical pastor Billy Graham. The movie marks Brasher’s first foray into feature film scoring, but is a due step forward for the proven writer. Formerly the keyboardist for award-winning contemporary Christian artist Michael Card, the versatile Brasher has co-written radio-friendly hits including Card’s “The New Jerusalem” and composed jingles for radio and television, along with scores for award-winning short film Winter: En Hiver and documentaries The Dance and The Curious Mr. Catesby.
