Interview With Breaking Dawn Soundtrack Artist Sleeping at Last’s Ryan O’Neal

The folks over at Pattinson Post had the opportunity to interview Ryan O’Neal of Sleeping At Last. Their song, Turning Page, is on the Breaking Dawn Part 1 soundtrack out today!

Pattinson Post: How would you describe your music?

Sleeping at Last: that should be such an easy question to answer, but i always seem to stumble over it! i’ll give it my best shot though… my music is sometimes on the gentler side of things. it features a rotating cast of different instruments.. from guitars, drums and bass instrumentation to pianos, banjos, ukeleles, and lots of orchestral instruments as well. i love strings! so strings find their way often into my songs. i’d say the genre fits somewhere in between indie, folk and alternative. aside from that, i just try to write very personal songs.

PP: You wrote “Turning Page” exclusively for the soundtrack. How did that happen?

SAL: yes! i wrote “turning page” a few months back, as a hopeful submission for the film. it’s a love song! i watched the 3 previous films back to back and did a bit of research on what’s to come in the story… and gave it my best shot! i couldn’t believe it when i found out that it was chosen! there was a few months that went by after i submitted the song and i hadn’t heard any word on it, so when i heard the news, only a little while ago now, it was all completely surreal… still shocked. i just feel so extremely privileged to be a part of the twilight saga, and am so grateful to the folks behind the scenes for giving this song a home in their film. i cannot wait for the soundtrack and film to release and for folks to hear it!
