One-time EURYTHMICS member DAVE STEWART has signed on as Exec. Producer for "THE BLUES HOUSE," a feature-length documentary about the searches that went on in the '60s for legendary blues singers who recorded during the Depression before being driven into retirement.
Now in post-production, the film is expected to be completed in early 2015 by director SAM POLLARD and producer BENJAMIN HEDIN. STEWART is also interviewed in the film, which will feature original music scored by noted blues guitarist GARY CLARK JR. DAVE STEWART ENTERTAINMENT is assisting in the final stages of production, financing, and distribution of the film, which will be overseen by DAVID JACOBSON on behalf of the company.
"THE BLUES HOUSE" explores the stories behind the searches for SKIP JAMES and SON HOUSE, which were carried out in MISSISSIPPI during a climactic and violent stretch of the civil rights movement.
