SO GLAD I MADE IT is an independently produced film about America’s best unknown songwriter. Roger Salloom was once hailed as the next Bob Dylan, but despite sharing the stage with Santana and Van Morrison, landing a record deal in 1968, getting airplay and good reviews, he never found fame. So Glad I Made It follows Salloom’s story through to the present day, when, having given up on the music business for 20 years, he gives it another try. (1 hour 36 minutes.)

“In spirit, So Glad I Made It is a tribute to all musicians who perform because it defines who they are. It confers a blessing on a generation for whom music was a deeply liberating force.”--Daily Hampshire Gazette
