Listen to JD & The Straight Shot's new track "Violet's Song" from the August: Osage County Soundtrack on The Hollywood Reporter!
August: Osage County is a look at the lives of the strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose paths have diverged until a family crisis brings them back to the Oklahoma house they grew up in, and to the dysfunctional woman who raised them. The song, co-written by James Dolan and Marc Copley, takes the point of view of lead character Violet - played by Meryl Streep.
"The character Violet is a study in family dysfunction. She has abused herself and her family for 30 years. 'Violet’s Song' is written from her point of view," Dolan tells THR. "Refusing to see the pain in her life, she drives her entire family away with denial and anger that stretches all the way back to her own childhood.” - James Dolan
"'Violet's Song' was inspired by the character Violet, and her role as the centerpiece of her family's dysfunction, while supported by the rich musical tradition and landscape of Oklahoma.” - Marc Copley
