Thunder Clatter by Keegan DeWitt

From his bio:

Keegan DeWitt is a songwriter and Independent Spirit Award-nominated film composer, originally from Portland, OR, and currently based in Nashville. Last year, PasteMagazine.com labeled him one of its '10 Best Solo Artists of 2010' and featured him as part of its 'Best of What's Next' series. He most recently released an EP, Nothing Shows, via the acclaimed Daytrotter website as its first ever exclusive release, and a limited edition 7", Two Hearts/Reluctance, via Theory 8 Records. Keegan has gained considerable press coverage over the past two years, with coverage from outlets including American Songwriter, AOL Music's Spinner, FilterMagazine.com, MagnetMagazine.com, MTVMusic, My Old Kentucky Blog, Nashville Scene, Popmatters, and Urban Outfitters, among others. After wrapping up the much-heralded Daytrotter Barnstormer 4 tour alongside Sondre Lerche, Guards, and The Romany Rye in late April, Keegan will head back out on the road throughout the northeastern US with Jeremy Messersmith in June.

DeWitt, who was named one of Paste’s ’10 Best New Solo Artists of 2010,’ first gained recognition for his film scores and his work can currently be seen in theaters in Aaron Katz’s Cold Weather. His most recent scores premiered at the SXSW film festival this year in official selection No Matter What, directed by Cherie Saulter, and in the short film “Remigration,” directed by Barry Jenkins (Medicine For Melancholy).
