I Got Nowhere to Go, In a Hurry Blues (PANDEMIC BLUES SINGLE)

Anyone going stir crazy? Here's something that might help you dance in your space wondering what kind of bizarre Twilight Zone we are now in? I just released this classic blues-style original track, in a hurry! It took a global pandemic to get me to sing and play blues-harp again!

"Ed Hartman's music is astounding."
Maria Humphreys, Strong Body Strong Soul (Podcast)

"Hartman’s new score is a fine complement to this new release. It is period appropriate, but with a modern feel, which is appropriate for the forward-thinking tone of the film."
Kendahl Cruver, aclassicmovieblog.com

"...the digitally restored 1938 original has been outfitted with a period-appropriate score by contemporary composer Ed Hartman."
Michael Rechtshaffen, LA Times

“Congratulations on your achievements and a fantastic score. Continue making music that tells a story as much as the film itself. We hope to experience more of your work in the future.”
Global Independent Film Awards
(Winner Gold Award, Best Score)

"Fans of the obscure will want to check out this...program, which represents an act of love and faith from one artist [Hartman] to another [Lyford]."
Nathaniel Bell, LA Weekly

"The new music brings the old film home. Ed Hartman has designed a soundtrack the informs and often comments on the film’s central action, the tapping of a desk given percussive elements, or escalating sounds conveying the tone of the conceit."
Calvin Kemph, TwinGeeks.com
