VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Bryn Johnson
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 talks with poet and singer-songwriter Bryn Johnson, who works as coordinator for Milwaukee’s branch of Sofar Sounds, a global movement that brings music lovers together without disclosing the lineup or location until the show. She has a live album out on Soundcloud, and a book of her poetry out titled “Shiver.” They discussed Bryn’s musicianship, her book, the concept of Sofar Sounds, challenges and benefits with its concept, and her plan to get into the studio next year.
