MIC & CHORD: A music documentary on the D/FW sound

Historians and musicologists have done a great job documenting and researching the contributions of the musicians from cities such as New Orleans, Nashville, New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Often overlooked are the musicians from Dallas/Fort Worth and their contributions to the American music culture. This documentary tells the story of how musicians from Dallas/Fort Worth have woven their sound into the musical fabric of America.  

We need your help to give a voice to these musicians and tell their stories by making "Mic & Chord" a music documentary of the Dallas/Fort Worth sound.  

"Mic & Chord," tells the story of how musicians went from singing on the street corners of Deep Ellum to the church choirs, into the ball halls of high schools like Booker T. Washington, Lincoln, I.M. Terrell, O.D. Wyatt, and Dunbar. Then to go on to producing some the greatest, Blues, Jazz, Gospel, Funk, Soul, Rock, Neo-Soul, and Hip-Hop musicians who went on to entertain crowds, and perform on stages all across the world.  

"Mic & Chord" will show the world the musical contributions of Dallas/Fort Worth musicians and how they have changed the musical landscape of American and beyond.
