"Excuse me, are you Joe Schermann's mother? Your son is ridiculously talented. He's awesome."
That was me in the foyer of the Apollo West End cinema on Friday. One month ago, I'd never even heard of Joe Schermann. Now, not only had I seen a movie about him, I'd met his mum.
But even that brief encounter was to be surpassed by my interview with director Gary King, actress/producer Christina Rose and composer Ken Lampl. From money and muses to wooing women, it was almost as much as the film itself (a fantastic, witty musical about a song-writer torn between his girlfriend, Evey, and his new muse, Summer).
Here's what happened. (Head this way to read our How Do You Write a Joe Schermann Song? review.)
