Grayson Capps is the soundtrack's author of "A Song for Bobby Long" Oscar winner.

Grayson Capps first discovered music in Alabama where he was born and raised. His father and friends would sit around the house getting drunk, telling stories and strumming acoustic guitars. They'd run down songs by Hank Williams, Tom T. Hall, Glenn Campbell and Woodie Guthrie to name but a few.

Heading off to Tulane University as a theater major on scholarship, Grayson also took up playing music.
He'd form two bands that would have moderate national success - The House Levelers and Stavin' Chain - receiving acclaim in publications like Spin and USA Today and opening shows for Keith Richards, The Replacements and Crowded House.

After graduating college, he took to squatting with friends in a string of abandoned houses on the outskirts of the Big Easy, stealing electricity, growing a garden and busking for whatever money was needed.
Grayson recounts those times on a number of songs off his debut album, If You Knew My Mind. One of those memories even finds its way onto Rott'N'Roll in the form of Ike.
