VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy With Ian Olvera
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 with Ian Olvera, who sings and plays guitar in indie rock band Daydream Retrievers, and works as an engineer at Wire and Vice. The band’s debut self-titled record came out in 2017. They discussed Ian’s origins playing music in Green Bay, his old band The Sleepwalkers, the Retrievers’ record, earplugs, and some new stuff his band is working on.
