Swamp Dogg Gets His Pool Painted

USA, 97 MINS, 2024, DIR. ISAAC GALE AND RYAN OLSON

Hidden away deep in the suburban San Fernando Valley, legendary cult musician Swamp Dogg AKA, alongside housemates Moogstar and Guitar Shorty, has transformed his home into an artistic playground.

Together, they navigate the tumultuous waves of the music industry, and forge a wonderfully bizarre and inspiring path across time and space.

The musical force known as Swamp Dogg (AKA Jerry Williams Jr.), has spent the past 65 years in the music industry as a singer, songwriter, A&R man, performer, and record producer. Once described as “one of the great cult figures of 20th century American music,” and “the soul genius time forgot,” Williams is a genuine eccentric responsible for some of the most unique rock-influenced R&B (and wildest album covers) ever made.
