Jim and Sam
After a decade of making music together, Jim and Sam, a recently married singer/songwriter duo from Los Angeles, were not the conventionally successful band they hoped they’d be. Feeling stuck and anxious about their future, the duo made a spontaneous decision to go “all in,” making a pact to play one show every day for a year. With suitcases, a guitar and whatever camera they could get their hands on (to film every single day), the troubadours ventured out for a 365-day tour down unexplored roads and onto unexpected stages, bringing their music to new audiences throughout 14 different countries. Their award-winning feature film documentary After So Many Days (out via Gravitas Ventures) is an intimate front row seat to the highs and lows of what it’s like for two people to pursue a dream, together. After So Many Days was named the Winner of Best Music Documentary Feature at Nashville Film Festival 2020 and has been an official selection at over 30 film festivals including: Traverse City Film Festival, Calgary International Film Festival, Florida Film Festival, deadCenter and more. From motels, to barns, to cathedrals, to bedrooms the band would record what would become the album to the film (out via Nettwerk Records). The band says of the album, "with the heartbeat of the tour and film being live performances, we included live stories, a live track and a few one-take recordings to capture the improvisational, in-the-moment nature of life on the road."
