Mac McCaughan is an immensely talented songwriter. He is also incredibly prolific, and we're not real sure when he manages to sleep. McCaughan first gained fame in the late 80's and early 90’s as front man and principal songwriter for the rock band Superchunk. Around that same time he started a record label, Merge Records, with his Superchunk band mate Laura Ballance, a label that they still run today. In the mid-90's Mac also formed Portastatic as an outlet for all the material he was writing that did not fit the Superchunk mold. Over the last 10-15 years, Superchunk has flourished as one of the most successful and influential bands on the college rock scene, Merge has grown into one of the most respected and successful independent labels around and Portastatic has developed into it’s own full-fledged artistic endeavor, releasing 6 full lengths and countless EPs, singles and compilation tracks.

Mac began composing for film in 2001 when he collaborated with directors/writers Matt Bissonnette and Steven Clark on the soundtrack for their feature Looking For Leonard. Merge also released the Looking For Leonard soundtrack on CD, to critical acclaim. The score for Who Loves The Sun reunites McCaughan with Bissonnette, and the result is a delicate and moving set of pieces that evoke immediate emotion and reaction whether accompanied by flickering images on a screen or not.
