Film & Blues Records was born out of an yearning to create music inspired by contemporary philosophers, and the great classic thinkers.
It embodies in its content a reflective meditation on big ideas that govern our lives, and aims at bringing critical thinking with a twist of hopeful romanticism to its audience.

- Justin Time Records
So many layers and subtleties all contribute to such a raw and clean sound, one that I don’t hear often enough in most modern music, and definitely one that others should hope to recreate in their music.
