"Wish I Was Here" Soundtrack

Posted by

Have you been spending the last 10 years —yes, ten. TEN years— like us, holding onto desperate hope for another Garden State-esque lightheartedly existential film to cling to? Well, the wait is over!

Comedy genius and indie darling, Zach Braff is set to return to the director’s chair with a film called “Wish I Was Here.” The film, which hits theaters in July, is wholly funded through popular crowd funding site, Kickstarter and well exceeded its $2 million goal with the help of more than 46,500 backers.

In the original campaign video, Braff explains his need and use of the site, mainly emphasizing his want to retain creative control, as he did with Garden State. Braff furthermore notes that Wish I Was Here is not a Garden State “sequel in story, but it’s a continuation of the tone.”

Wish I Was Here

But that’s not all!

For die-hard Garden State soundtrack fans, Under The Radar magazine reports that Wish I Was Here’s soundtrack will be equally as memorable. Braff apparently just confirmed that Bon Iver, Cat Power, and Coldplay are participating, setting this up to be another home-run soundtrack compilation.

Disappointed? Don’t be, because it wouldn’t be a Zach Braff film without a little help from The Shins, who will reportedly also be heard on the soundtrack. You can read more about the project, its funding, release, and soundtrack on the film’s official website as well as enjoy playlists and downloads while you wait for the film’s release in July.

SongHunters Testimonials

  • "I am one of the top mixers and producers in the country and have had years of experience in the music and associated businesses.

    My company licenses songs and seeks songs to be licensed for films, TV and Commercials and thus I have worked with many people in the licensing industry and discovered there is a wide range and degree of service and quality when you seek songs.

    In my experience, I have found that The SongHunters exhibit a real knack at delivering the right songs and offering a wide range of music in all areas to choose from.

    Dave Hnatiuk, David Weiss and Doug Diamond are hands on and believe the quality service does not stop at sending a music file to choose from. They believe in follow-up and follow-through and are there for you as long as and to the extent that you need them.

    They not only provide great songs for your needs, but also provide you with some great solicitations for your music on their own projects. Do I recommend them? You bet I do! And that recommendation is earned, not just given!"

The newly revised, definitive book on music supervision, which guides you through real-world scenarios and legal landmines, explores sound design, and profiles key players.

Music supervision, or matching music to all the different mediums from films to ring tones, is one of the fastest-growing careers in the music industry, but finding the winning song for a national ad campaign or compiling a platinum movie soundtrack takes more than just good taste. Music supervision today requires serious multi-tasking and the ability to navigate licensing, relationships, and cultural trends with ease. This book guides you through real scenarios and legal landmines you might encounter; it explores sound design and profiles key players with insightful interviews, while providing project form templates that will save time for seasoned music supervisors.

This is the only guide to the career of music supervision and is ideal for the music student, musician, industry executive and of course, for those who want to break into the field of music supervision. Authors David Weiss, Ramsay Adams and David Hnatiuk are all renowned figures in the procurement and supervision of music and they apply their combined knowledge and experience to give the best possible advice and tell you how to get the job!
