“At 27, film & TV composer Tangelene Bolton has accomplished more in her career than many twice her age. While scoring a movie, Tangelene loves becoming completely submerged in the minds of the characters. Since discovering film in her teens, she’s been a lifelong devotee of the form. Music is her way of giving back to the medium which has given so much to her.” –Roland Cloud
