Following what was a landmark year for Portland-based This Patch of Sky with their breakout Self-Titled album, the band has been tasked with composing music for the upcoming Russell Brand documentary, BRAND: A Second Coming. The film, which is the follow-up to 2013's Russell Brand: Messiah Complex will feature five previously released songs, as well as a to-be-determined amount of original scores.
The documentary which chronicles the rise and fall, and subsequent rise again, of the English comedian will make it's world premiere by opening the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, TX on March 13th. The documentary was picked from the 145 feature films that were chosen by the panel out of the 2,385 submissions.

In addition to the songs that are being written for the Brand film, This Patch of Sky have been featured in other films and numerous commercials over the years. The band has created the album Luminous - Songs for Film and TV which is available for streaming on their Bandcamppage. The digital-only album currently has two songs but will be updated as new tracks become available.
