  1. It isn't exactly film score music, but y'all should add Taylor Davis to your compilations! She has some great violin music, sometimes it's along the lines of film scores and the like, sometimes it's gamer music. Either way she is great to listen to, I write to her music all of the time!

  2. I searched for Taylor David and found some awesome stuff. I also searched Trevor DeMaere as I've never heard of him, and he writes some insanely epic stuff.
