MTB Documentary Music

“My Thiero Boys” would not be a fully moving depiction without the original music excerpts donated by 4 Christian recording artists Producer Vana Thiero met at In His Presence Church (IHPC) where she attends regularly. Cory “Mr. Use Ta” Cofield, Bliss, Sherree Brown and Johnny Britt. Mr. Use ta and Bliss serve on the Praise and Worship Team at  IHP Hip Hop Church in Burbank, CA. Johnny Britt serves on the Praise and Worship Team at IHPC in Woodland Hills, CA as well as tours with his band Imprompt2. Sherree Brown released her new album “Soul Thirsty” in January 2012 and resides in Chicago, IL.

The “My Thiero Boys” theme song “Welcome to my World” is by Christian recording artists “The SOG Crew,” based in Anaheim, CA who tour U.S. & Mexico clubs, Universities, High Schools, Prisons and much more. The Filmmaker feels that “Welcome to my World’s” in-your-face music, head banging beat and rap testimony keenly emulates the wild life and enduring faith it takes to overcome the challenges embodied within the issues that come with the autism diagnosis.

Producer Vana Thiero held recording session with several solo musicians to create original background music. Bassist, Dorian Ford of “Lions! Tigers! Bears!” played intelligent and powerful rhythms. Violinist, Nadira Bailey provided classically imaginative masterful works. Cellist, Tia Eshou brought a depth of mood most called for throughout the film. Bailey and Eshou are IHPC Praise and Worship Musicians. Pianist, Ron Minasian, Praise and Worship Director for True Life Ministries embodied storytelling lullabies depicting sweet dreams and poignant nightmares. Drummer/Percussionist, David Moralas donated his wealth of moving and provocative beats to the film, he said, as a gift to the Lord. These individual creations are combined and layered throughout the documentary.

Jazz Musician, Antonio Jackson’s music is also featured in “My Thiero Boys” providing a smooth relaxing quality as a welcomed breath of fresh air during the film’s lighter moments. Jackson’s dynamic spirit-filled energy and charisma have given him a distinctive new voice on the saxophone.
