Sly and the Family Stone Documentary Set for 2019

Dance to the Streaming Music is set for a 2019 release. 

The feature documentary about Sly and The Family Stone is wrapping up for release next year.

The film about the life and legacy of the iconic funk artist has hailed from
Brady Spensor and has been ten years in the making. Spensor conducted exclusive interviews with the musician whose impact on the development of funk, soul, rock, and psychedelic music is undeniable.

“This production has been more than a decade in the making and seeing it all coming together is a dream come true,” he says. “The time we spent together was treasured and any opportunity to be around Sly was exceptional, and I wouldn’t pass it up for anything,” Spensor told Deadline. 

“It took months before Sly even remembered my name,” Spensor added. “But soon after, I would get called at all hours, day or night. This was at a time in his life when things were really difficult for Sly. I became his friend at his most down and out, most financially broke and feel incredibly grateful for Sly’s trust and participation allowing me to document the end of a tragic spiral, then the transition and the outcome of Sly winning a significant lawsuit that may have influenced The Music Modernization Act.”
