VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy With Martha Cannon
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.
Today, Ben talks to Martha Cannon, who fronts “Midwest softcore” band Lady Cannon and sings in psych-pop band L’Resorts. Lady Cannon’s record “Fortune’s Darling” and the self-titled debut L’Resorts record both came out this past year. They discussed Martha picking up music as a creative outlet once she moved from Washington state to Milwaukee, Las Vegas, writing songs about men, the many different vibrations on “Fortune’s Darling”, and quantity vs quality.
