ABOUT THE FILM
After a decade of making music together, Jim and Sam, a recently married singer/songwriter duo from Los Angeles, were not the conventionally successful band they’d hoped they’d be. Feeling stuck and anxious about their future, the duo make a spontaneous decision to put their music and marriage to the ultimate test by making a pact to play one show every day for a year. With suitcases and a guitar, the troubadours ventured out for a 365-day tour down unexplored roads and onto unexpected stages, bringing their music to new audiences throughout 14 different countries.
"You’ll want a front row seat to this intimate and endearing music documentary from singer-songwriter duo Jim and Sam…An enchanting love letter to music and marriage, and an exhilarating example of putting your heart on the line for the thing (and the one) you love." - Michael Moore’s Traverse City Film Festival
"You know how all the days seem to blend together and mean nothing lately? Well if you need a little reminder that that’s not true, or at least proof that it can be not true, there is no better movie than After So Many Days, now available on VOD. " Lea Palmieri, Decider
"I need inspiration, you need inspiration, and there looks to be plenty to go around here..." Christopher Stipp, SlashFilm
Their latest single, "Doctor Please," was produced by Dan Molad (Chimney and Lucius). Their single, "Underdogs," was recorded on tour with producer Viktor Bälter-Lundin and musicians Magnus Olsson and Anders Pettersson (Melissa Horn, Lykke Li). In 2015, they self released their debut EP, "This Is What's Left," produced by Lasse Marten (Lykke Li, Peter Bjorn and John).
In 2007 they met at a comedy show.
Nice words from nice people...
"Their songs are impeccably written, structured, and arranged. They’re also so very pretty, and incredibly catchy; earworms in the best possible way."
Marion Hodges, KCRW MUSIC BLOG
“Only equipped with an acoustic guitar, a storm-mounted microphone that takes up all the sounds and two amazing voices, they succeed in catching the audience's attention from the first chord. It's as if people hardly dare breathe under the songs to not break the mood and the question is if it's ever been as quiet in the usually quite messy Press Hall. This is what music is all about. Honest simplicity, two fantastic voices in tight harmonies, one acoustic guitar.”
Pierre Eriksson, REFUG SWEDEN
"Perhaps more intriguing is opener Jim and Sam whose sound is positioned somewhere in the bluegrassy knoll. The L.A. folk sweethearts are bound to break out with their Simon and Garfunkel meets Serge and Brigitte vibe (just scope their website for Chrissake)"
James Walmsley, THE READER
"Keeping, yes, almost increasing, the intensity when you calm down the tempo of a song is a tough art and not all of them lost. Jim and Sam are nothing but completely phenomenal at just that ... Their two voices complement each other so incredibly well and they fill in, duel and merge into each other, as it would be obvious. Jim companys effectively on his acoustic guitar, sometimes sparse and sometimes expressive so you think all strings can go at the same time ...They stand close to each other on the stage, often face each other and they sing so nicely and varied, move diligently and look at each other with such obvious love and warmth that it is like an invisible frame of blooming around them ... This is how music should always be experienced, and it's this kind of meeting between artist and audience should always be ... (Translated from Swedish)
"Their voices are intertwined into one unit and it is beautiful and beautiful...I think of Buckingham Nicks (before joining Fleetwood Mac), especially because I think Jim's voice reminds a little of Lindsey Buckingham's. Even his empathy and movement pattern when playing a guitar has a certain resemblance…. Both Sam and Jim live in the music and get full. Often it is low-key and crisp, but occasionally they stamp the beat in the floor and raise the tempo. Their midnight nose has a lot of humor and they have a glimpse of the eye." (Translated from Swedish)
Pär Dahlerus, UPPSALA NYHETER
"Armed simply with a guitar, the folk duo’s haunting harmonies filled our library, both unaffected and enchanting at once. The six-song set mixed catchy melodies with harmonic odes to relationships and friends long gone."
GOLDEN STATE MAG
"The LA based duo of Jim & Sam are to put it simply, wonderful musicians. Not only that, they’re bloody hard workers too. How exactly do we know that? Well, they’re currently embarking on their biggest project yet: The Anywhere Everyday Tour, setting them the challenge of playing a live show every day for an entire year! And in fact, their live performances are an enthralling and captivating experience, driven by their catchy folk tunes and beautiful vocal harmonies."
"The duo, Jim and Sam, are folky with beautiful harmonies and have the best on-stage banter....I'd recommend a song but I literally love all of them (though I dare you not to get "My Body My Bones" stuck in your head)."
CUPCAKES & CASHMERE
"They haven’t shown any signs of backing down from this challenge, though, and Monday night’s show was a prime example. As they glided effortlessly between performing and striking up witty conversations with the crowd, it certainly didn’t seem like performing for the previous seven consecutive weeks had put a damper on their energy. Towards the end of the show, it became evident that Jim and Sam began this tour out of a genuine yearning for adventure. Between reconnecting with old friends, collaborating with new musicians and simply getting to meet new faces along the way, it has already developed into a very memorable and inspiring tour,
