A musical journey through Alberta that celebrates music’s imperfections, and explores what is really important in music and life.
Directed by Calgary-based Josh Wong, NO ROADS IN follows singer-songwriter Blake Reid, sound engineer Adam Naugler, and the Blake Reid Band on a musical journey as they challenge industry convention and set out to create an analog record.
An abandoned house in the middle of an endless Alberta wheat field is transformed into a recording studio, as the group comes together to capture the love, laughter and raw energy of 13 songs recorded live off-the-floor over five days in the summer of 2016. Showcasing the vast Alberta prairie landscape and the uniquely haunting isolation that foments creativity, the beautifully shot documentary celebrates music’s imperfections and explores what is really important in music, and in life.
Advance tickets to the September 27 event at Studio Bell, home of the National Music Centre are SOLD OUT. As part of the event at Studio Bell, the Blake Reid Band will perform songs from the documentary in an immersive musical performance. Both the film screening and live performance will take place at Studio Bell, home of the National Music Centre.
Blake Reid will also play an intimate performance following the screening at Globe Cinema.
