"Music is a hobby, because I'm not making any money out of it, but I put just as much conviction into that as I do into my acting."- River Phoenix
It seems that whilst River found no pleasure in movies, fame or show business, he did find happiness as a musician. "Music is a whole oasis in my head," he said. "The creation process is so personal and fulfilling."
River wrote a song during the making of A Night in the Life of Jimmy Reardon that got the attention of Chris Blackwell, head of Island Records who offered him a development deal. "I was Chris Blackwell's pet project," said River. "It's an open-ended contract and works entirely around the career in films I've established. Chris is very patient and is happy to let it brew away and see what it turns into."
