Jon Brion - I Believe She's Lying

We are thrilled to start the new year by announcing that Jon Brion has joined Notable Music for exclusive publishing administrative agreement in the US. We are so proud to have him join our musical family of great songwriters.

As a producer and/or co-writer, Jon has worked with everyone from Kanye West to Fiona Apple, Spoon to Elliott Smith, Rufus Wainwright to Best Coast, to name but a few. Brion’s numerous film scores – from his Grammy nominated work on such modern classics as Magnolia and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, to current projects such as the forthcoming ParaNorman – have only grown his recognition as one of the most respected contemporary composers.

His semi-regular shows at LA’s famed Largo at the Coronet have literally become the stuff of legend – as the Largo site itself says “you never know who might drop down the chimney for some unannounced fun.” The too-numerous-to-list parade of Jon’s special guests over the years is a virtual who’s who of musicians and singers, from Neil Finn to Nels Cline, Sam Phillips to Brad Mehldau, Robyn Hitchcock to Aimee Mann… you get the idea.

Jon’s lone solo release, Meaningless, remains a critical favorite, and is regularly cited as an influential record for many artists and songwriters. It is from that album that we present “I Believe She’s Lying” – a classic slice of intricate pop from the brain Jon Brion. The tune has already been covered by a varied group, including Rhett Miller of the Old 97′s, genre-bending R&B wunderkind Spree Wilson, and a cappella group Reverse Osmosis.

Check out this clip of Jon performing “I Believe She’s Lying,” live at Largo.
