In this edition of Content POV, composer Brian Keane talks about his contribution to “Very Ralph.”
For more than fifty years, Ralph Lauren has defined America's style and made his brand a global powerhouse. Classic, understated, and sophisticated, his fashions reflect his vision of optimism and the American Dream. “Very Ralph” reveals the man behind the icon, as he speaks candidly about his life’s journey, his challenges along the way, and his inspirations.
Brian Keane wrote, arranged, and produced the score of this documentary. Keane has scored well over one hundred award-winning documentaries and films, including eighteen Emmy winners for best documentary or series (among sixty-seven nominations), nine Peabody Award-winning films, six Oscar-nominated films, and one Academy Award-winning film. Keane has won four Emmy Awards out of twenty nominations.
“I am humbled by finding out that my music score for “Very Ralph”, a Susan Lacy directed, Pentimento Films, wonderfully made documentary for HBO about the life of the fashion icon, Ralph Lauren, won a Grand Award in the New York Festivals Awards. I have won various awards for music including a Grammy, several Emmy Awards, and have scored literally dozens of Emmy, Peabody, and Oscar-winning films, but I never have received a New York Festivals Grand Awards for music. Thank you so much!”
