NY, NY (21-Dec-12) Roc-elle Records is proud to announce the upcoming release of Music from the Motion Picture Downtown Express by David Grubin. The lead single, “Ain't No Train”, written by Michael Bacon and Nellie McKay, is under consideration for the 2013 Academy Award for Best Original Song. The film follows a young Russian violinist (Grammy nominee Philippe Quint in his acting debut), studying at Juilliard under his father's ambitious eye, who falls for the frontwoman of an underground Brooklyn band (McKay) and joins that band, jeopardizing his classical career. The film's music was co-written largely by Bacon and McKay, with classical performances by Quint, and band pieces composed by Bacon, McKay, Quint, Declan Bennett (American Idiot), Jade Synstelien, and Chris Eddleton. The music in Downtown Express has been praised by critics across the board as a highlight of the film. The full soundtrack album will be released in Feb 2013.

Key players: A director, writer, producer, and cinematographer, David Grubin has produced documentaries for 40 years, winning many prizes including 10 Emmys. Downtown Express is his first fiction film.

Michael Bacon, an Emmy Award-winning composer with numerous other awards to his credit, has scored over a dozen feature films and hundreds of hours of prime time television. In addition, Michael is a singer-songwriter and musician in The Bacon Brothers, with his brother, actor Kevin Bacon. He is also a professor of film scoring at Lehman College in the Bronx.

Since her audacious double-album debut Get Away From Me, Nellie McKay has released five critically acclaimed albums, won a Theatre World Award for her performance in the Broadway production of The Threepenny Opera, performed onscreen in the film PS I Love You, and contributed original music and covers to the Rob Reiner film Rumor Has It. McKay tours regularly and has been featured by such publications as Rolling Stone, NPR, and the New York Times.

A two-time Grammy Award nominee, violinist Philippe Quint has gripped the eyes and ears of audiences in Asia, Australia, Latin America, Africa, Europe and the U.S. with what The Times (London) describes as his “bravura technique and unflagging energy.” He plays on the 1708 "Ruby" Antonio Stradivari violin on loan through The Stradivari Society®. To prepare for his role in Downtown Express and further his understanding of the craft, Quint trained intensely with legendary producer and acting instructor Sondra Lee.

“The music is sublime” - New York Magazine
“Radiates with love” - The New York Times
“It was refreshing to see someone on screen who was actually performing, and quite beautifully at that.” - NPR
“Downtown Express may be the most musical movie ever made.” - Ground Report
