Never have so few companies controlled so much of the music played on the radio and for sale at retail stores. At the same time, there are more bands and more ways to discover their music than ever. Music seems to have split in two - the homogenous corporate product that is spoon-fed to consumers and the diverse independent music that finds devoted fans online and at clubs across the country.

BEFORE THE MUSIC DIES tells the story of music at this precarious moment. Filmmakers Andrew Shapter and Joel Rasmussen travelled America, hoping to understand why mainstream music seems so packaged and repetitive, and whether corporations really had the power to silence musical innovation. The answers they found on this journey - ultimately, the promise that the future holds - are what makes BEFORE THE MUSIC DIES both riveting and exhilarating.

At the heart of BEFORE THE MUSIC DIES are interviews with musicians, industry insiders, music critics, and fans that reveal how music has reached this moment of truth. Featured performances from a truly diverse group of artists, show us that great music is always out there… as long as you know where to look.

BEFORE THE MUSIC DIES will renew your passion for great music, and inspire you to play an active part in its future.

Featuring Dave Matthews, Erykah Badu, Eric Clapton, Elvis Costello, Branford Marsalis and more.
