“A), those cats are f*cking good, and B), they’re talking to each other.” – David Crosby
“…a beautiful, joyful and compelling journey of the most iconic and respected session musicians on the planet…” – Rock NYC
Immediate Family is a film about a session band whose members accomplished great feats, like knocking out Werewolves of London in just one afternoon and earning nearly a hundred gold and platinum records over five decades. The greatest session bands have the ability to transform a raw song from a songwriter into a far higher artistic place than even the original songwriter could ever have imagined. And that is the singular genius of The Immediate Family, a band that has elevated the sound of generations, including the music of James Taylor, Carole King, Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne, and Keith Richards, as well as Neil Young, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Don Henley and Phil Collins, Bonnie Raitt, Warren Zevon, Stevie Nicks, Lyle Lovett and Jimmy Buffett. This small, amiable team of players would change the course of musical history, creating the sound of the 70’s and all that came after.
