Adryon De León’s Song on the ‘Mank’ Soundtrack
Exquisite vocalist Adryon De León is a highly regarded singer who currently works with Orgōne and with Matador! Soul Sounds. She has a solid body of recorded work with both and is pure electricity on stage. Her brand new single is “Ally.”
She is also featured on a song for the soundtrack of the new movie Mank. The movie is about Herman Mankiewicz, the screenwriter who who crafted the screenplay to Citizen Kane with Orson Welles, and the struggle to complete that task. Mankiewicz is the grandfather of TCM host Ben Makiewicz. Citizen Kane was released in 1941; Mank follows the process in 1940.
The soundtrack is 1930s perfection, composed by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Miss De León is featured on the gorgeous period piece “[If Only You Could] Save Me,” which was been submitted for Oscar consideration in December 2020, when the movie debuted in theaters. Listen, and you will understand why.
