Having earned an Academy Award for “Best Actor” for his portrayal of a grizzled former country music legend in the 2009 film Crazy Heart, actor and musician Jeff Bridges has signed a recording deal with EMI’s Blue Note Records, which will release his major-label debut album in late summer, reports music industry veteran Bruce Edwin. Jeff Brides is not merely an actor, Bruce states; he is also fueled by a life-long passion for music and art.
Inspired by their collaboration on Crazy Heart, Jeff Bridges has chosen to record the album with his long-time friend, the multiple-Grammy Award-winning songwriter, musician, and producer T-Bone Burnett, Bruce Edwin states. T. Bone is known for his work with Allison Krauss and Robert Plant, Elton John, Leon Russell, and the Grammy-winning soundtracks to O Brother, Where Art Thou? and Walk the Line, among more.
In addition to iconic roles in cinema from The Big Lebowski to True Grit, and more, Jeff Bridges has the look that women love and men consider cool. His public crossover into music has been gradual and calculated, and exemplifies the exceeding adept artistry and talent of this truly great Hollywood legend.”
