THE SWEET REMAINS IN A FEATURE FILM!

THE INDEPENDENTS is a musical comedy and drama about three struggling solo-artists who collide at the same crossroads - and discover harmony.  Inspired by the Sweet Remains' real-life experiences as a band, THE INDEPENDENTS is a new feature film written and directed by our own Greg Naughton and starring THE SWEET REMAINS!  It made a great splash at it's Santa Barbara International Film Festival premiere in February where The Hollywood Reporter hailed it "An extremely engaging film... An unconventional and sharply written script which subverts all the cliches of the star-is-born story.”(Full review here).  It then won the jury prize for BEST FEATURE FILM 2018 at the Omaha Film Festival -- and is now garnering invites to great festivals all over the world!

Featuring original music by the Sweet Remains, the film is also fortunate to have cameo performances from some power-house (& award-winning) actors including RICHARD KIND, JAMES NAUGHTON, KELLI O'HARA, BOYD GAINES, CHRIS SULLIVAN, KEIRA NAUGHTON & GEORGE WENDT.  

Upcoming festival screenings include the DEADCENTER FILM FEST (in OKC) June 7 & 10 ("One of the 20 coolest film festivals in the world" --Moviemaker magazine)  (see "Tour" page for details/tiks).   General release TBA later in 2018.  All NEWS and info for the movie available at www.TheIndependentsFilm.com.   Check out this fun Teaser introducing the film and its premiere in Santa Barbara!

TSR'S TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY

2018 marks the band's tenth anniversary. In May of 2008, Greg and Brian flew to Los Angeles to meet Rich and spend a week recording in Rich's apartment on the corner of Laurel and Sunset.  Those recordings became the band's debut album, Laurel & Sunset, including four songs produced by Andy Zulla, who continues to be an important collaborator with the band today.  That album & the band turn 10 in May!   Thanks to all for a decade of tSR!
