THE LONG AND WINDING ROAD : KEVIN MATHEWS – REEL2REAL EP

A new world of opportunity opened up for me in the mid-90s when filmmaker Eric Khoo roped me into working on some music for his features Mee Pok Man, 12 Storeys and later on, Be With Me.

Being very familiar with my music, Eric would cherry pick my material to select tunes that he felt would be suitable for his visuals and his direction would invariably be utterly spot on.

So, on the 20th anniversary of 12 Storeys (the first full soundtrack I had ever written), I decided to release an EP in tribute to Eric and his amazing films.

Elements of “Keep the Faith”, “My Life” and “Little Girl Lost” can be found in the three aforementioned films and all of the songs (in one form or another) can be found on the relevant original soundtrack albums.

The restored version of 12 Storeys will be screened at the Projector on 29th July. Get tickets here.

Reel2Real EP is now available at Bandcamp. Pay as you like!

… still there’s more …
