Jon Brion – Walking Through Walls

Nothing in this world is gonna hold me
No thugs on the road are gonna roll me
No fast-talking girl is gonna slow me
Nothing’s gonna stop me at all
I’m walking through walls

In 2001, Jon Brion released his first – and thus far, only – solo album, Meaningless. Jon certainly did not rest on his laurels in the time before and since, having scored a batch of critically acclaimed films (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, I ♥ Huckabees, etc) and produced everyone from Kanye West to FIona Apple to Best Coast. Upon release, Meaningless instantly met with tremendous critical acclaim and has retained a massive cult following. “Walking Through Walls” – co written with his pal, the incredible Grant-Lee Phillips – is a Notable office favorite… we dare you not to sing along.

On the film side, Jon recently wrapped up scoring the Focus Features animated film ParaNorman, due out this August. He is currently working on the next Judd Apatow film, This Is 40 – a sort-of sequel to 2007′s Knocked Up – which is set to hit theaters in December.

LA residents and visitors, be sure to catch Jon Brion live as he performs at his second home, Largo at the Coronet. You can witness one of these legendary performances at the end of just about every month. To see a schedule of upcoming performances and to buy tickets, click HERE.
