Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives (2017) Netflix Documentary

American record producer, A&R executive, music industry executive, and lawyer, Clive Davis, is one of today’s top driving music business’ mogul. The death of Davis’ parents propelled him to pursuit a career in law before becoming president of Colombia. After working with Colombia from 1967- 1973, he then founded and was head of Arista in 1975-2000. Unlike other A&Rs, Davis showed a great passion and genuine care for his artists. After Davis was kicked out of Arista for making too much money, he was brought back and later worked with J records. As Davis shares in the film, Davis loved the process of working and helping artists achieve “hit songs” and was driven by his love for music. While Davis faced with his issues of legal struggles, it was a certain level of fear that caused Davis to succeed in the business and making long lasting relationships with top music celebrities i.e. the great Whitney Houston. Another mogul, I’d love to meet in my own journey as an artist. 10/10 recommend.
