Description:
  Bill Withers is the unlikely and reclusive super soul singer from the late 60s and early 70s with such hits as “Ain’t No Sunshine,” “Lean on Me,” “Lovely Day,” and “Just the Two of Us.” An enigmatic character, the film attempts to breach his code of silence and get to the heart of how a small town boy from West Virginia would take the music world by storm and then, just as easily, mysteriously disappear into near obscurity.

Featuring interviews with Dr. Cornel West, Sting, Angelique Kidjo and Jim James from the rock band My Morning Jacket, the film is a testament to the power of soul.

Filmmakers Damani Baker and Alex Vlack follow Withers and offer a unique and rare look inside the world of this fascinating man.

Through concert footage, journeys to his birthplace, interviews with music legends, his family and closest friends, Still Bill presents the story of an artist who has written some of the most beloved songs in our time and who truly understands the heart and soul of a man.
