Wickham says , “I have been listening to Shy since the mid-80s and I feel a kinship to the band’s amazing late guitarist Steve Harris.
I have always admired his skill on the instrument, but after speaking with his wife Deb Harris, I learned Steve loved horror movies and we were born the same year.
I wrote Double Vision as a love story. So I needed songs that would capture a very affectionate, passionate feel, especially because it involves two people with a romantic history that had not seen each other for a decade. Plus these characters were not sure what each other thinks now.
So I wanted songs that could support that kind of doubt and mystery, yet create some sort of a unsaid echo that seemed to say they still wanted to be together.
Shy’s music is always reminded me of Journey with a little heavier metallic touch. I have absolutely no doubt their songs would be perfect for this movie.
I set my sights on their self-titled album Shy that came out in 2011, which was the last album the band released before Steve Harris passed away early in October of 2011. Since I reviewed that album as a journalist, I knew there were multiple songs I could choose from that would really support Double Vision.
I look at this whole positive situation as Shy’s songs are not only helping enrich the loving atmosphere of my movie, but it gives me a chance to keep Shy’s music alive and in the process honor the musical Legacy Steve Harris left behind.”
