Featuring Original Music By ATLI ÖRVARSSON

Lakeshore Records released the CHICAGO FIRE: SEASON ONE – Original Television Soundtrack and the CHICAGO FIRE: SEASON TWO – Original Television Soundtrack digitally on January 6th and on CD March 10, 2015. The album features original music by Atli Örvarsson (“The Eagle,” “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.”)

“The best information I got was talking to the creators of the show about their conversations with real firefighters so their research for the series as a whole helped me with the music,” explained Örvarsson. “The show found its soul in the heroism of these civil servants, their togetherness and the drama of their daily lives. It is the latter that’s the focus of these soundtrack releases.”

Originally from the small town of Akureyri, Iceland, Atli Örvarsson became established in the local music scene at a young age.  He earned three platinum and two gold records as a member of the Icelandic band Salin Hans Jons Mins before studying film composing at Berklee College of Music and the North Carolina School of the Arts. He excelled in composing and was awarded the Pete Carpenter Fellowship, which brought him to Los Angeles. He began working alongside TV veteran Mike Post on “NYPD Blue” and three “Law & Order” brands. Örvarsson soon caught the attention of composer Hans Zimmer, who extended an invitation to Örvarsson to join his team at Remote Control Studios. Örvarsson’s accolades include several ASCAP Film & TV Music Awards for his work and was nominated for the prestigious World Soundtrack Academy’s “Discovery of the Year Award” for his score for “Babylon A.D.”

Örvarsson’s credits include orchestrating and writing music for some of Hollywood’s biggest projects, including the “Pirates of the Caribbean” series. He has contributed music to films from “Angels and Demons” to “The Holiday.” As a composer, Örvarsson displays musical diversity throughout his action-film scores in “The Eagle,” “Vantage Point,” “Babylon A.D.,” the Morgan Freeman caper “Thick as Thieves,” “The Fourth Kind” and the Nicolas Cage medieval fantasy “Season of the Witch.” Örvarsson’s most recent credits include the “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,” the dark and edgy film “Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters,” the drama/thriller “A Single Shot” and the hit NBC series’ “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago P.D.” He also recently worked with Hans Zimmer to contribute music to the Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel.”

“There is a bit of a Midwestern element in the use of guitars, a sort of a heartland Americana sound. The piano and strings play a very big role in the dramatic emotional scenes,” said Örvarsson.

From renowned Emmy®-winning executive producer Dick Wolf and creators Derek Haas and Michael Brandt, the writing team behind “3:10 To Yuma,” “Chicago Fire” is an edge-of-your-seat view into the lives of everyday heroes committed to one of America’s noblest professions. No job is more stressful, dangerous or exhilarating than those of the firefighters, rescue squad and paramedics of Chicago Firehouse 51. These courageous men and women are among the elite who forge headfirst into danger when everyone else is running the other way. The enormous responsibilities of the job also take a personal toll, but despite any differences this is an extended family and when it is “go time,” everyone inside Firehouse 51 knows no other way than to lay it all on the line for each other.

Season one stars Jesse Spencer, Taylor Kinney, Monica Raymund, Lauren German, Charlie Barnett, Teri Reeves (season one only), David Eigenberg and Eamonn Walker.  In season two, additional series regulars include Yuri Sardarov, Joe Minoso and Christian Stolte.

In addition to Wolf, Haas and Brandt, executive producers also include Danielle Gelber, Matt Olmstead, Joe Chappelle and Peter Jankowski.
