LINDA RONSTADT: THE SOUND OF MY VOICE

Directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman
FEATURE DOCUMENTARY 95 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE LINDA RONSTADT: THE SOUND OF MY VOICE
With one of the most memorably stunning voices that has ever hit the airwaves, Linda Ronstadt burst onto the 1960s folk rock music scene in her early twenties. The lead singer of the Stone Poneys, Ronstadt eventually branched out to begin her decades long career as a solo artist, touring the world selling out stadiums and, at one point, setting the record as the highest paid female artist in rock. Most remarkable to this day is her interest in and willingness to jump into new and challenging styles of music, including opera, jazz, and Mexican folk, excelling fantastically with each. Ronstadt has also been an outspoken political advocate for causes such as same-sex marriage and the inhumane treatment of undocumented immigrants, never shying away from fighting for what she believes both on and off the stage.

Filled with rare photos from her childhood in Tucson and wonderful archival footage from her iconic performances, as well as moving testimonials by luminaries like Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton and Bonnie Raitt, Ronstadt’s own voice narrates her journey all the way to her retirement in 2011 due to Parkinson’s disease. In the deft hands of directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman and producers James Keach and Michele Farinola, we are treated to a poignant biopic about a truly one of-a-kind artist.
