VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Orange Drink
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 one-man band performance artist Orange Drink, whose most recent record “This is Orange Drink” came out in November. One of the most unique musicians in the scene, he is known for his elaborate crowd interactions and theatrics. They discussed Drew’s early days messing around making music in his room as a kid that would lead to the Orange Drink project, conveying his music in a multitude of ways, coming from Virginia to the Midwest, cognitive dissonance, and turning his shows into a one-of-a-kind spectacle.
