Encounters South African International Documentary Festival shared the following link and had this to say about it: “‘Rockstardom’ is one of the South African films to look out for at Encounters 2012. It tells the unlikely and heart-warming story of Brendon Shields, a singer-songwriter from Bethlehem in the Free Sate. After years of writing and recording demos, Shields landed a publishing deal for his debut record “Truth and Recession“. His songs deal confidently with both and with the hope and heartbreak of growing up in a small town, “where rockstardom is the only option left”. Rolling Stone called him “one of the best wordsmiths working in contemporary music globally” and his songs a “plaintive sketch of artistic life on the breadline by a songwriter of majestic simplicity”.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nPjnbFC9J1o&feature=youtu.be

Nate Maingard: Seasons
Nate Maingard on Seasons: “Seasons started off as an idea about a love affair between winter and summer, how they dance around one another but can never touch. Then it turned into a celebration of everything, just an all-out song of wild abandon man.”
