Movie Info

Few musicians play with more passion and conviction than the soulful folks who take to the sidewalks to share their music. In this release, filmmakers Mark Johnson and Jonathan Walls explore both the motivation and the music of the contemporary street busker by showing just the lengths to which these entertainers will go to share their music with the public. By showcasing both the lives and music of musicians in New York, New Orleans, and Los Angeles, Johnson and Walls offer a series of soulful moments that may have otherwise gotten lost in the infinite noise of the outside world. In affording viewers a taste of the outsider music that may likely never reach beyond a two-block radius, the filmmakers in essence capture the true spirit of the music that is so crucial to the lives of the performers.
