Below Stairs Productions has started an Indiegogo campaign for the documentary "The Man Behind the Music," a tribute to Henry Lewy. Henry Lewy was a kind, humble, generous person who succeeded in a city and industry that most often rewards those who are narcissistic, greedy and ruthless. He died in 2006. The documentary will honor what he represented. Click to check out the Indiegogo campaign and contribute.

New SOFaT member Michael Paul Caruso is offering his services as a Music Supervisor through Ashland-based MAGNETIC WEST MUSIC, a full music supervision service including indie music curation, placement, licensing, original music composition, sonic branding, and music catalogue.
