Sixto Rodriguez: Searching for Sugarman

“Wonderful… as heart-warming as a tale as you’ll see all year” (MOJO) 

One summer I had the pleasure of playing some festivals in the UK with an artist named Sixto Rodriguez. I had no idea who this guy was but they sent over an album of his called ‘Cold Fact’ recorded in 1970 and was blown away. You just knew when you where on the stage with this man he was special, he just had this aura but none of us knew who he was….

The gigs come and go and a couple of years past and then it happened – ‘Searching for Sugar Man’ hits the cinema screen and it all makes sense…. I won’t spoil it for you, you just have to watch it but it’s the most amazing story and i’m so happy to have been part of his incredible journey.
