Syl Johnson Documentary Kickstarter

Robert Hatch Miller’s Kickstarter campaign is raising money for a documentary about soul singer Syl Johnson and the timeline has 6 more days to reach the $40,000 goal. Miller calls the film Syl Johnson: Any Way The Wind Blows and it follows Johnson’s life from 2009 to the present. It’s amazing how sampling was originally seen as stealing from older artists but now it validates them to younger generations as Miller uses those that have borrowed from Johnson to introduce him to a wider public in the trailer.
