“Supernatural” – The CW 1 Hour Drama/Series
Composer/Orchestrator – Jay Gruska
This is one of the most fun projects in TV that I’ve ever worked on, for several reasons. Amazing producers who are smart, funny and love music, a huge variety of musical styles to play with, alternating shows with a composer, Chris Lennertz, whose work is awesome, and fans that are very loyal and cool. Chris and I knew we were going to alternate episodes, so after a few conversations about style and palette, we never looked back. We are starting our 6th season and are releasing a Supernatural Soundtrack CD on Water Tower Music which is available on Amazon and iTunes. Aside from the brilliant and funny Eric Kripke, who created the show, I am re-teamed with producers/directors Robert Singer and Phil Sgriccia, two giants in my book. Add producers Todd Aronauer and Sera Gamble into the mix and you have ‘quality of life’ on a TV series.
These selections are all ‘suites’ edited together for the CD. At the bottom you’ll find the very tongue in cheek Supernatural “Sitcom theme” from one of the funniest episodes, season 5′s ‘Changing Channels’.
The Soundtrack entered the AMAZON Chart at #24 – two weeks before its release and entered the chart at #3 on the day of its release.
