The Resilient is an American rock band comprised of some of the most combat wounded people in history.
During their physical rehabilitation at Walter Reed Army Hospital, Tim Donley – Singer/Songwriter; Nate Kalwicki – Guitar; and Juan “Dom” Dominguez – Drums, met Music Director and Guitarist – Greg Loman through the MusiCorps program. They have since developed and maintained a brotherly bond through their friendship and commitment to music.
Producer Andie Clarke was searching for a very specific modern day sound that would resonate with a wide audience and to play during the closing credits of her historical drama, Elijah and Jack, A Revolutionary Tale.
Elijah and Jack – A Revolutionary Tale follows the adventures of Elijah, a courageous 8-year-old farm-boy, and his faithful dog Jack as they encounter famous figures of the American Revolution on his search for his father who has gone missing after the 1778 Battle of Monmouth. Described by its creators as Huckleberry Finn meets The Patriot, the movie is an adventurous, at-time humorous, heartfelt story steeped in Family, Freedom, Home with a surprising twist of Redemption!
Clarke “envisioned a song that would bring the past to the present; a modern day rock song with a patriotic beat and haunting undertones”.
After seeing The Resilient on a news special Spring 2019, Clarke reached out to the band and invited them to write and record a theme song for the movie.
After several months in the studio, the band went above and beyond to capture the essence of Clarke’s vision with the song “The Cost of Freedom“!
Clarke shares “The Cost of Freedom” is one of those time tested nostalgic songs that will have you humming the melody and singing the tune throughout the day. It is absolutely perfect for our story and honoring those who sacrificed so much for our God given rights to be free.”
She also states “Working with the band has been an honor and supports our motivations to give back to veterans and their families.”
According to Band Manager Kelly Donley, The Resilient will release the song as a single and will also appear on their first album. Date to be announced soon.
With many of its members literally given a second chance at life, The Resilient have committed to a new mission: presenting and sharing their powerful message through songwriting and a passion for honest musicianship.
“There’s something about it, that just, the motivation, the drive, the soul of it. It doesn’t feel it can go anywhere but up,” Tim Donley said.
Audiences across the country will confirm that witnessing this rare unity of military discipline and artistic freedom- along with their extraordinary physical abilities, that allow them to overcome and perform like there is no tomorrow- is what makes The Resilient unmissable.
