MUSIC Tiger's Hope

If  you've read the screenplay, the lyrics for most of the songs are included...but not the music, of course. While there is not a one-to-one correspondence between the screenplay and the music below, these tracks will give you a sense of the music created years ago for the story. As much as we like these tracks, we are not committed to using them, and may commission the artist who may star in Tiger's Hope (should she be a singer/songwriter in her own right) to write new music.

 

But I will always honor Janet Pound, James Stonehouse, and David Crawford for their wonderful contributions to this vision of the story. Except as noted lyrics are copyrighted Janet Pound 2010, 2016, and music copyrighted James Stonehouse 2010, 2016.  Most of the tunes were originally created for Janet's Stage Music honoring the Automobile Industry CAR STARS. But IMHO they were really written for Tiger....Janet just didn't know it at the time. Vocalists are Angela Maiz, and Al Jacquez recorded by Terry Herald in his Independence Day Studio. David Crawford's track is from his album Double Dog Dare, published by SWC Films and Nineveh's Crossing, also recorded by Terry Herald.
