VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Jon Phillip
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 long-running musician Jon Phillip, who currently fronts the rock project Mini Meltdowns. He has played in Limbeck as well as with Trapper Schoepp, Tommy Stinson, and Paul Collins. He is currently based in Nashville, where he plays in the bands Fresh Basil and Baby Brains. And he co-founded Good Land Records. He’s done a lot. They discussed Jon’s eighteen-year long tenure in Milwaukee music before he moved to Nashville, Limbeck’s recent first shows in Milwaukee/Chicago in twelve years, the new Mini Meltdowns EP, his record label, and his sobriety.
