A sweet, tortured soul blessed with a beautiful voice and gifted songwriting chops, Elliott Smith burned brightly in the time he was with us. His sudden death ten years ago sent shock waves through the music world, and even a decade on, it’s hard to believe he’s gone, with no more music to share with us. But there’s plenty to celebrate with the life and tunes he left behind and director Nickolas Rossi‘s upcoming documentary, “Heaven Adores You,” will endeavor to do just that.
A new teaser trailer has dropped for the crowd-funded film that will premiere at the San Francisco International Film Festival. Indeed, it’s a sensitive look at the musician from those that orbited his world. Those taking part include bandmates, producers, family and friends, including Jon Brion, Larry Crane, Rob Schnapf, Kill Rock Stars label owner Slim Moon, and many more.
“Heaven Adores You” premieres on Monday, May 5th. Watch below.
