Keeping Score with Jos Slovick (1917)
Actor Jos Slovick is the first featured guest on our Keeping Score podcast. Slovick provides a glimpse into his experience acting and singing in the film 1917, as well as recording the track “I Am a Poor Wayfaring Stranger” at Abbey Road Studios. The release of "I Am a Poor Wayfaring Stranger” follows the success of Thomas Newman’s critically acclaimed score for 1917. Towards the end of the film, Slovick appears as a British soldier singing the folk song to his fellow troops prior to battle. Slovick says, “1917 is an incredible film to be part of. It felt like a special moment when we filmed that scene, and I’m so pleased it’s resonating with people. Recording the song at Abbey Road Studios was a dream come true.” Set at the height of the First World War, 1917 – directed by Sam Mendes – centers on two young British soldiers, Schofield (George MacKay) and Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman), who are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers – Blake’s own brother among them. The Keeping Score podcast series is produced and hosted by Crossover Media's Max Horowitz.
