After 25-plus years, eight Grammy nominations and countless performances throughout the world, the Los Angeles-based TIERNEY SUTTON BAND presents ScreenPlay, an ambitious 15-track collection of songs from American film. 

ScreenPlay opens with a song by the most influential film lyricists of all time, Alan and Marilyn Bergman. “The Windmills of Your Mind” was an Academy Award winner for the Bergmans and composer Michel Legrand in 1969. Other Bergman contributions to ScreenPlay include “What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life?,” “It Might Be You,” and the previously unrecorded “Ev’ry Now And Then.” Tierney Sutton and Alan Bergman himself perform a vocal duet on “How Do You Keep The Music Playing.” 

Along with the five Bergman titles, the music of ScreenPlay spans nearly 80 years of American film. The arrangements and Sutton’s readings of the songs that comprise ScreenPlay are pure TIERNEY SUTTON BAND at the height of its powers. Starting with the 1930s on tunes like "If I Only Had A Brain” from The Wizard Of Oz, to the 1980s on a heartbreaking “Hopelessly Devoted To You,” and a Latin 5/4 romp through “You’re The One That I Want” from the movie musical Grease, and up through 2016 on “Arrow," which was originally written for Clint Eastwood’s hit Sully, the TIERNEY SUTTON BAND subtly illuminates and revolutionizes each well-worn song while shining a loving light on some lesser known gems. 

This recording is yet another classic from one of the most creative and artistically satisfying bands on the scene today.
