Inside Llewyn Davis Soundtrack

The Latest Details About the Inside Llewyn Davies Soundtrack

As to the score of Inside Llewyn Davis, no film composer has been named yet. There are a few names being thrown out there but all of these are merely rumors and hear-says. They haven't been confirmed at all. However, being a huge fan of the Coen brothers, I think I have a likely candidate to score the latest from the talented brothers. You see, the Coen brothers has worked several times with a certain composer. In fact, this composer scored most of the brothers' films. This composer's name is Carter Burwell. Burwell wrote the music for almost every single film ever made by the brothers.

Burwell scored Joel and Ethan's greatest movies including True Grit, Burn After Reading, No Country for Old Men, The Ladykillers, Intolerable Cruelty, The Big Lebowski, Fargo, Miller's Crossing and Raising Arizona. With that said, I have reason to believe that Inside Llewyn Davis will be scored by Burwell as well.
