Films chose Soldier On and Casualty to feature in the opening
episode of The House, broadcast on a community TV network
in Dublin. A version of Soldier On without the vocals also featured
as the series’s theme tune.
a founder member of the Irish Film and Television Academy, said: “In
looking for music for my tv series "The House" I trawled
through a lot of songs over a lot of hours.
'The Truth', so, was almost the religious experience the phrase suggests.
A rich, soulful sound with lyrics that speak right at you, the album
is a treasure trove of great songs. When you play this album for the
first time it's like that rare but wonderful experience when you're
introduced to someone and immediately feel like you've known them forever.
series is about interesting characters in real situations and maybe
that's why this album sits so perfectly on the soundtrack.”
One of Mr Cassidy’s
earlier films, Whatever Turns You On, won Best Film Award
at the Florence International Film Festival in Italy.
