Featuring musical guest Suzie McNeil

A native of Toronto Canada, Juno Award winner Suzie McNeil was born into a musical family. She was practically raised singing with her mother and sister, learning to collaborate from a very early age. From that foundation, Suzie evolved into a versatile, powerful artist and songwriter, who combines a magnetic stage presence with vocal and multi-instrumental (piano, guitar & harmonica) ability.
Concert backup singers are people not often thought about, as their purpose is simply to provide additional vocals to more popular musicians during their concerts. Through a documentative tale of what it is like to be so close and yet so far from fame, multiple backup vocalists tell of their experiences working with popular artists, and hoping for their own big break. Through exclusive interviews, the film delves deep into the lives of these unrecognized, but talented individuals, and how it feels to be in their position.
