The subjects of Kate Davis and David Heilbroner’s new film were all born into music royalty. But when the offspring of James Taylor, Carly Simon, Bill Withers, Stephen Stills and the Marleys set out to become singer-songwriters themselves, they walk a fine line between trying to live up to the success of their legendary parents and forging their own path. With candor, humor and a lot of fantastic music, Born into the Gig demonstrates the challenges of pursuing the family business on a whole different scale.
Running Time: 81 minutes
