Happy Birthday, Cliff Martinez! Revisiting Scores By Acclaimed Composer Of The Lincoln Lawyer, Drive +More

Cliff Martinez, acclaimed composer of hit films such as Drive and The Lincoln Lawyer, celebrates his birthday today!


Let’s take a look back at an interview of him talking about his work on The Lincoln Lawyer, soundtrack released by Lakeshore Records.  The classic interview features insight by the composer (aspiring film composers: take note!) and a demonstration of him playing a baschet crystal, the very rare instrument in which Cliff used to create signature soundscapes.

Happy birthday, Cliff!
