VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Crystal Knives
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 EDM artist Crystal Knives, who was selected as a Backline artist in 2018. His singles “Stranded”, “When I’m Okay”, “Beautiful Chaos”, “Hotel California”, and “So Numb” (his latest) all dropped in 2019. They discussed Spencer’s musical background and gravitation towards producing, staying up late, his songs from the past year, takeaways from Backline, and giving equal attention to the creative and technical elements of art.
