Twenty of us gathered in our living room on Saturday night for a very special screening and private concert. The film was Broke*, a documentary about the (dysfunctional) music industry and one artist’s struggle to find his way - and his place - within it. The concert was a much too short performance by Will Gray (he’s the guy in the photo above and the ridiculously talented star of Broke*) and his longtime friend Reva Williams of Gretel.
“You’re evangelists of beauty,” someone said when Will and Reva paused after their second song. ”How do I get more of that in my life?”
The answer, it seems, is more complicated than you’d think. There are reasons that artists like Will - who, no exaggeration, is one of the most talented musicians and songwriters I’ve ever met - are struggling to get by while _______ (I’ll let you fill in the blank) is on radio repeat. Broke* tells this story and gives you more of Will, which, trust me, you need.
