**WINNER OF THE LA EDGE FILM AWARDS FOR BEST DOCUMENTARY**
August – September 2019
“You know sometimes we put things out there in the universe. Thinking we just do what we do for inspiration and passion. But throw it out there to maybe get any kinda reaction. Not that it really means anything. More so out of sheer curiosity.
But when the universe responds. It’s absolutely mind blowing. And I feel somewhat humbled. But to have another film festival vote us, best documentary out of Los Angeles. I can’t even.
Love all the people who have been involved in this thing. But they get it. The ones that voted us in get it. That to me is inspiring. Winner LA Edge films best documentary. I don’t care about accolades. To me it’s just that somebody out there gets it.” – JD Barth
Winner of the 2019 LA Edge Film Awards for Best Documentary.
Many thanks again to everyone involved.

These are all of the songs that were featured in the film Catonsville: Music City Maryland. Can you believe there are a total of 85 songs in this film? All 100% original music and all of these bands are out of Catonsville. This is just a small snippet of the incredible music coming out of this town. A sequel to this film of other bands could be very interesting…
Most of these songs are for sale and locations provided here. This would make one amazing movie soundtrack!
