Nominated for Best Music
He was a wildly reckless spirit, a musical prodigy who felt the world around him too deeply, sacrificed everything for his muse, and found redemption through his songs. This is the bittersweet story of North Carolina musician Nathan Davis, whose haunting lyrics and huge catalog of recordings remain a testament to an artistic fire that lives on.
With his trademark fedora hat, intensely raw lyrics, and his amazing awe-inspiring live performances, Nathan Davis was a musical sensation waiting to happen. The fascinating and ultimately touching portrait by director Dean Garris, traces Nathans story from his early years of musical prodigy and struggles with inner demons to his ultimate rise as a singer songwriter on the edge of greatness.
Interviews with Grammy nominated producer John Custer, indie-music.com Assistant Editor Jennifer Layton, plus fellow musicians, friends, colleagues and fans are complemented perfectly with astonishing performance video footage and photos that reveal someone who was not just inspired to play music, but driven to play as a way to save his soul.
