VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with SSAANN
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 electronic artist SSAANN (Melissa Simes), who plays keys in pop rock band Will Pfrang and the Good Land Gang as well as in the house band for Angelo’s Piano Lounge. Her latest singles “Save You” and “JustSitBackRelax” are available on Soundcloud. They discussed Melissa’s origins playing piano eventually involving synthesizer, the seamless nature of electronic music, her latest SSAANN songs, playing with the Good Land Gang, and the wonderful establishment of Angelo’s.
