Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Laura Nyro, one of the most revered singer-songwriters of the 20th century, will be the subject of an upcoming documentary from Vistas Media Capital.
Ben Waisbren (300, The Equalizer, Blood Diamond) and music producer Bonnie Greenberg (RBG) will produce the documentary about a talent who burst onto the scene in the late 1960s. Nyro made a breakthrough performance at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival at the age of 19, possessing a multi-octave voice that could move easily through folk, jazz, soul and blues.
Nyro’s songs included “Stoned Soul Picnic,” “Wedding Bell Blues” (covered by The Fifth Dimension), “And When I Die” (covered by Blood, Sweat & Tears), and “Stoney End” (recorded with soaring vocals by Barbra Streisand). She was David Geffen’s first client as a music manager and he helped secure her a recording contract with Clive Davis at Columbia Records. Nyro’s music and activism turned her into an icon of the feminist movement.
This is where all of the games are discussed.
