Movie Info

Everybody is talking about Spotify and the pros and cons of "free." Musician and first-time filmmaker Rain Perry confronts a big issue by telling a small story--of the longest continuously operating recording studio in Austin, TX and the shopkeeper who runs it, Mark Hallman. After recording Carole King, Ani DiFranco and many great Austin artists, Mark is struggling to keep the studio open in the era of streaming. Funny, sweet and insightful, with great music and interviews with Ani DiFranco, Iain Matthews, Eliza Gilkyson and more, The Shopkeeper captures the resolute spirit and frustration of musicians today.
