Release Notes


Official Website


Acclaimed violinist Quint and singer-songwriter McKay play, respectively, a young immigrant classical musician with dreams of glory and the Lower East Side girl with whom he tries to forge a new musical style and identity. Expect many comparisons to Once: The story, such as it is, is strictly connect-the-dots, but the music is sublime.
