In 1970 Sixto Diaz Rodriguez, an American folk musician from Detroit, released Cold Fact, an album inspired by life, love, poverty and rebellion. The album saw slow sales and mixed reviews, and after trying and seemingly failing again with the album Coming from Reality, Rodriguez disappeared entirely from the public eye. Amid death rumors, Rodriguez and his music were becoming hugely successful on the other side of the world. In South Africa, New Zealand and Australia, Cold Fact went multi-platinum and became a cult classic. Now, four decades later, Rodriguez is back and capturing new fans through the critically acclaimed documentary Searching for Sugar Man.
