Still Bill


In 1985 Bill Withers, the great R&B singer/songwriter, made his last record, deciding it was more important to be a husband and father than a hit maker.
‘Ain’t No Sunshine,’ ‘Lean on Me’, ‘Lovely Day,’ and ‘Just the Two of Us’ are only part of his legendary music repertoire.
Now years later, he emerges to share the experiences that come with living an extraordinary and contemplative life.
Through interviews with friends, family, fellow musicians and Bill himself, Still Bill paints the portrait of a man who chose to leave fame and fortune behind to remain true to himself.


  • The New York Times
    Much of the biographical documentary Still Bill, about the singer Bill Withers, is pleasant and even moving.
    Mike Hale
    Still Bill is about a man who topped the charts, walked away from it all in 1985 and is pleased that he did.
    Roger Ebert
