In LINDA RONSTADT: THE SOUND OF MY VOICE, Ronstadt is our guide through her early years of singing Mexican canciones with her family; her folk days with the Stone Poneys; and her reign as the “rock queen” of the ’70s and early ’80s. She was a pioneer for women in the male-dominated music industry; an early advocate for human rights, and had a high-profile romance with California governor Jerry Brown. Ultimately, her incredible voice was lost to Parkinson’s disease, but her music and influence remain as timeless as ever. With moving performance footage and appearances by collaborators including Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt and Jackson Browne,LINDA RONSTADT: THE SOUND OF MY VOICE celebrates an artist whose desireto share the music she loved made generations of fans fall in love withher – and the sound of her voice.
Captures the life and career of a rock ‘n’ roll star who never looked back, never apologized, never compromised, virtually never made a wrong move, and made it all seem effortless.
If there’s one drawback to “The Sound of My Voice” is that’s Ronstadt herself declined to sit down with the film’s directors, Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, for sit-down interviews.
