FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LAKESHORE RECORDS PRESENTS ROB THE MOB –
ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK

Featuring Original Music by Stephen Endelman
And the Original Song “Love And The Gun” with Music by Endelman, Lyrics by Director Raymond DeFelitta, Performed by Tamela D’Amico

(March 12, 2014– Los Angeles, CA) – Lakeshore Records will release the ROB THE MOB – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally and through Amazon-On-Demand on March 18, 2014. The album features original music by Stephen Endelman (EVELYN, FLIRTING WITH DISASTER) and classic tracks by Deee-Lite, Staple Singers and Wilson Pickett, along with the new cut “Love and the Gun”, which features lyrics by director Raymond DeFelitta and vocals by Tamela D’Amico. ROB THE MOB will be in theaters on March 21, 2014.

“Raymond has made a career out of capturing Italian American working class characters with a myriad of interesting features,” said Endelman. “He knows the world so well and is able to capture it in a beautiful and quite lyrical manner, always with taste and integrity.”

DeFelitta had the idea to write a song for the movie – which would become “Love and the Gun”. According to Endelman, DeFelitta suggested, “Let's make it a big 60s/Italianate song - and that's what we wrote. Ray came up with a lyric, I then recorded it with a great band and string players. Tamela D'Amico came in, translated it into Italian, and sung it in both English and Italian. It just fits the movie perfectly.”

Grammy-nominated composer, arranger and producer Stephen Endelman has successfully demonstrated his ability to write music and collaborate in a variety of genres. His scores range from lush, classical orchestrations, to contemporary, pop-driven tapestries. In the contemporary music world, Endelman has worked with music icons including Elvis Costello, Sheryl Crow, Robbie Williams, Alanis Morissette, Natalie Cole and soprano Renee Fleming. As a film composer, Endelman has work with Oscar®-lauded filmmakers including David O. Russell (FLIRTING WITH DISASTER), Martin Scorsese (KICKED IN THE HEAD), Irwin Winkler (HOME OF THE BRAVE), David Mamet (REDBELT), Bruce Beresford (EVELYN) and Robert Deniro (A BRONX TALE). Endelman's wide-ranging works have spanned the rich orchestral score for THE ENGLISHMAN WHO WENT UP A HILL, BUT CAME DOWN A MOUNTAIN, to his minimalist, modern score for the hit comedy FLIRTING WITH DISASTER.

New York City, 1991. Small-time crooks Tommy (Michael Pitt) and Rosie (Nina Arianda) have two things in common: a crazy-passionate love for one another and—after they’re caught robbing a florist on Valentine’s Day—prison records. Trying to go straight, Rosie lands a job at a debt-collection agency and persuades Tommy to join her. But soon Tommy is skipping his shifts to do something much more interesting—attend the landmark trial of Gambino-family boss John Gotti, where Mafia hit man Sammy "The Bull" Gravano provides graphic testimony that could finally bring down the flamboyant mob kingpin.

“It's hard to believe that two people could be so stupid as to think they could get away with robbing the social clubs of known mafioso,” said Endelman. “I used a lot of homemade pads as textures for their darkness. I also went to a prison and recorded everything you could possibly imagine inside a prison cell. It was a disused prison and that became my percussion ensemble.”
