VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Beaumont James
One of our contributors, Ben Slowey, is more than on top of the local music scene. In addition to his work for Breaking And Entering, he also hosts the Mr. Nice Guy podcast, an interview-based show that reaches out to Milwaukeeans for conversations about what motivates them. Many of these shows fittingly involve the local music scene, and we’ll be sharing some of them here as well.
For this episode, Ben sat down with country musician and party animal Beaumont James, who had a band, Beaumont James & the Wild Claims and dropped an album “Try Every Trick” last year. James is on the move to Colorado, so the band is dissolving. They discussed why he is moving, partying to country, incorporating heavier rock elements into his music over time, playing in his hometown, and the fate of his music career to come.
