First Ever Firefly Double-LP, With Original Music By Greg Edmonson
(August 2, 2016 – Los Angeles, CA) – Varèse Sarabande Records will release the Firefly Television Series Soundtrack double-LP, with music by Greg Edmonson (TV’s King of the Hill, Uncharted 1-3 video games) exclusively available at Barnes & Noble beginning August 12, 2016.
Calling all Browncoats! For the first time on LP, the Firefly soundtrack is being released. The exclusive package features an original rendering of the ship Serenity on the front and back covers of this double LP gatefold jacketed set, featuring the beloved score by Greg Edmonson. Though only 12 of the original 15 episodes aired, the series spawned a feature length film and international acclaim for its creator, Joss Whedon, and stars Nathan Fillion, Gina Torres, Alan Tudyk, Adam Baldwin, Ron Glass, and Summer Glau. Business Insider said, “The cancelation of Firefly after only one season in 2002 has been held up as one of the greatest tragedies in science-fiction TV.”
“It moves me beyond words that the show still has a following after 10 years,” said Edmonson. “That is almost unheard of in our fast moving world of disposable entertainment/everything. I do believe that it stands as a tribute to Joss and I know for a fact that this was so very close to his heart. He made something that could run for a long time without EVER repeating itself. And he made characters that were real and human—flawed, yes, just as we all are but I could not love them more—and I am not alone!”
Tulsa-born Greg Edmonson proved to be the perfect choice for Joss Whedon’s space wester. After relocating to LA, Greg landed his first scoring gigs for the hallowed TV animation company Hanna Barbera. His work for the medium caught the attention of one its most in-demand composers, and soon Greg was working alongside multiple Emmy-winner Mike Post on hit series such as L.A. Law, Quantum Leap, Wiseguy, and Cop Rock. An Emmy® nomination for one of Greg’s songs served as proof that he had found his niche and was on the scene to stay.
Greg’s next taste of success came on Mike Judge’s long-running animated series, King of the Hill. For that edgy comedy Greg created a satirical American sound that combined Texas guitar with an orchestra – music that could be as humorous as it was heartfelt. He followed that ride by developing the distinctive sound of Joss Whedon’s revered sci-fi show Firefly, conjuring a unique orchestral Americana style that artfully integrated such culturally diverse instruments as the dobro, duduk, and saz. Greg’s credits also include several independent films including Blue Ridge Fall, Luckytown, and Montana Amazon, and the first three games of the Uncharted series for which Greg earned the BAFTA and AIAS awards.
