Broke* Screening Tour (Summer 2012)
A 17-city screening tour of the award winning documentary film, Broke*, has launched with three shows in Los Angeles. The intimate screenings, held in unique venues and private residences is also highlighted by an acoustic performance combining the talents of writer/artists Reva Williams and Will Gray. Both appear in the film created by Gray on the sustainability challenges that emerging artists face today.
Broke* won a juried award for ‘Most Original Vision in a Music Film” at the 2011 Nashville Film Festival and has screened at numerous colleges and industry events. Etan Rosenbloom, writer at ASCAP.com called it “…a documentary rich in insight, range and emotional power, but with no detectable agenda. In other words, it’s a must-see for anyone interested in where music and those who make it are headed.”
Williams and Gray have also recorded a six-song EP and will be performing songs from that collection in conjunction with the tour. The Renegade EP will be released online through the United For Opportunity (UFO) collective. It will be available in late July. Although both artists are pursuing solo careers, the screening tour presented an opportunity to write and tour together. Reva Williams, speaks to the hybrid tour saying, “We both have our own projects, but we are lighter and more nimble as the two of us instead of one.”
The tour includes a screening of the film, a short acoustic set and a Q& A session with the artists. Venue locations and ticket details are available below.
