NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwire - March 19, 2010) -

WHO: Los Angeles-based duo, The Good Listeners, featuring Clark Stiles and Nathan Khyber recently released their documentary and album, Don't Quit You Daydream, via iTunes (
WHAT: Don't Quit Your Daydream will be premiering at the Nashville Film Festival (NaFF) and will be available for viewing two days (April 21-22) of the eight-day festival that begins on April 15. In addition to supporting the screenings, The Good Listeners will be performing at the festival's closing party.
  Don't Quit Your Daydream is the story of two musicians not ready to give up the dream of being rock stars after hitting 40. The duo set off to do what most said they couldn't -- record the album of their dreams on the road and document every second. Leaving their day jobs behind, they embarked on a 24-day cross-country road trip in an RV recording and filming both the album and documentary, Don't Quit Your Daydream. While spanning 12 cities across the heart of America, they recorded with varying musicians, including Bingo Richey at The Integratron created by George Van Tassel in Joshua Tree, CA, to Bugs Salcido on an art ranch in Marfa, TX, to Adrian Grenier at a barn in Lexington, KY.
  The film leads viewers on an amazing journey and is an inspiration for anyone not willing to let anything get in the way of their dreams.
  Don't Quit Your Daydream was produced in association with JLoar, Inc. and Adrian Grenier's Reckless Productions.

About The Good Listeners: Their newest release Don't Quit Your Daydream, released on Three Fingers Records, features hit tracks "Eight Steps Away" and "Chemtrails."

The duo are no strangers to unusual ways of working and remote recording locations, having completed their 2005 debut album, Ojai, after recording an impressive 10 songs in 10 days in a makeshift home recording studio. And in a setting reminiscent of the movie, "The Shining," their 2007 album, Crane Point Lodge, was recorded in a 14-room country lodge nestled deep in New York State's Adirondack Mountains. The Good Listeners additional projects include branching into musical scoring, contributing their song, "Time Will Tell" to the 2006 movie "The Devil Wears Prada."
