November 12th, 2006


Dave Matthews is featured in the music documentary “Before The Music Dies”. This documentary also features Eric Clapton, Elvis Costello, Erykah Badu, Branford Marsalis, Bonnie Raitt and more.

Before the Music Dies is an extraordinary documentary and cautionary overview about the state of the music business in America. Written by Andrew Shapter and Joel Rasmussen (and directed by Shapter), each of whom lost loved ones who happened to be musicians, Before the Music Dies is a journey through a vital music scene in the U.S.—-artistically speaking—-that is no longer nurtured and supported commercially.

The film's release is entirely grassroots, with small screenings at various locations all over the country the week of November 12-19, 2006. Also, XM Radio will broadcast the audio of the film on November12th, marking the first radio debut of a feature film.

”Before the Music Dies” will be available on DVD, December 12th, 2006 on
