SHARON JONES FOREVER

Sharon Jones has been gone for seven months. We have her albums with The Dap-Kings on Daptone Records, as well as MISS SHARON JONES (2015), Barbara Kopple’s great documentary on Jones’ artistic practice and battle with pancreatic cancer.

This month, the L.A. Film Festival presents the premiere of the new documentary LIVING ON SOUL, which covers the entire roster of Daptone artists and founders—onstage and off—including Jones, Charles Bradley, Gabe Roth, Neal Sugarman, Billy Mitchell, Saundra Williams, The Como Mamas, Naomi Shelton, Tom Brenneck, Martin Perna, and Amayo. LIVING ON SOUL was produced, photographed, and directed by Jeff Broadway and Cory Bailey.

LIVING ON SOUL, Tuesday, June 20, at 7:30 pm.
