VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with CRLSS
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 to experimental electronic musician Ryan King, who is the brain behind the project CRLSS. His debut record “Heartstrings” came out in 2018, and he recently dropped “Sleeping Lessons.” We discussed Ryan’s origins playing music, how music has helped him overcome addiction, Riverwest’s music scene, his debut project, and “screaming for those that can’t scream.” You can check out more episodes of Mr. Nice Guy on YouTube, and check out this interview below:
