Film synopsis:

After years of paying his dues in every bar from New York to Pennsylvania, rocker Jimmy Ford trades in his rock n’ roll fantasy for the bright lights of Nashville. Success proves elusive until Malinda Price, an up-and-coming country singer, takes an interest in him. But just as his career and personal life begin to take off his past comes calling, reminding him there are always strings attached.

Jason Michael Carroll, whose top 40 hits include “Alyssa Lies”, “Livin’ Our Love Song” and “I Can Sleep When I’m Dead” stars as Jimmy Ford. He also wrote or co-wrote the soundtrack for the film, which will soon be available for download through multiple digital music outlets.

Katie Garfield, who stars as Malinda Price, is a singer-songwriter/actor who has had multiple song placements on shows like Reign, Riverdale, and Teen Wolf. As an actress she has had guest-star roles on hit TV shows like Nashville, Sleepy Hollow, The Vampire Diaries, and Under the Dome, and played Catherine Turner in The Birth of a Nation.

Strings is being distributed domestically by Monarch Home Entertainment, and is currently available for streaming through both Amazon Prime Video and Amazon Video.
