Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives — Trailer


added: Tue, Sep 19th '17

85-year-old music executive Clive Davis is the guy behind the guy ... behind the guy! This is his story.

Check out the trailer for "Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives," the forthcoming documentary that chronicles the five-decade career of the legendary music mogul who is credited with discovering superstar singers like Whitney Houston and Barry Manilow. He is also known for turning young talent into world-famous superstars (e.g. Christina Aguilera, Carlos Santana, Alicia Keys, TLC, Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis, Jennifer Hudson and more).

Featuring archival footage and exclusive sit-down interviews, the film is directed by New York-based documentarian Chris Perkel.

After premiering to solid reviews at this year's Tribeca Film Festival, "Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives" will be released exclusively on Apple Music next month, beginning Tuesday, October 3rd.

Documentarian Chris Perkel catalogues the life and successes of iconic music executive Clive Davis, from his miraculous start at Columbia Records through his trailblazing work at Arista Records and J Records, with a heavy dose of outstanding music sprinkled in between. More than mere biography, The Soundtrack of Our Lives is a guided tour of cultural revolution from the '60s to the rise of hip- hop, led by a man who consistently caught the next wave before everyone else -- if he didn’t just create the wave himself.
