A new documentary on Canadian music icon Randy Bachman is currently in production.

Bachman is a contemporary film about the man who is often referred to as the “architect of Canadian Rock n’ Roll.” Few artists can claim to have made a bigger impact on popular music which he has done through his list of unforgettable anthems turned pop-culture touchstones.

He first hit the scene in 1965 with the track “Shaking All Over,” and since that time, Bachman has sold over 40 million records and earned over 120 gold and platinum album/singles awards around the world for performing and producing. His songwriting has earned him the coveted number-one spot on radio playlists in over 20 countries, and he’s one of only two countrymen to have been inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame… twice.

This full-length documentary explores his global impact on popular music (Bachman’s songwriting produced chart-topping hits for The Guess Who and Bachman-Turner Overdrive, including “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet,” “American Woman,” “Let it Ride, “Taking Care of Business,” “Looking Out for #1,” “No Sugar Tonight” and “These Eyes,” tracks that have become pop-culture touchstones).

Farpoint Films teams up with Paquin Entertainment Group on Bachman which is licensed to The Documentary Chanel and brings together an award-winning team including director John Barnard and Larry LeBlanc, widely recognized music industry journalist.

Bachman is currently in production.
