VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Michael McKinnon
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 singer-songwriter Michael McKinnon, who released a self-titled debut album in 2018. He is originally from Sturgeon Bay, WI. They discussed Michael’s origins playing music, the beauty of Door County, his record, his experience with the finger-style guitar program at UWM, and whether or not a day is complete without working on music.
