The Independents

A chance encounter of three unintentional collaborators reignites their aspirations of making it in the music industry. Emphasizing the unpredictable impulses of the artistic spirit, the singer-songwriters develop friendships through the commonality of their desperate dreams. Featuring cameos from Tony winners James Naughton and Kelli O’Hara, the musical dramedy stars the folk-rock group The Sweet Remains. Paralleling the dynamic between the real-life bandmates, the integrated soundtrack showcases their shared love of music and highlights the struggles of the artistic process. The folk-rock trio discovers harmony when their paths collide and they embark on a journey together across America. Discussion with writer-director Greg Naughton and actor-producer Kelli O’Hara, moderated by Mitch Levine
