VIDEO: Mr. Nice GUy with Orlando Pena
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.
This time, Ben sits down with singer-songwriter Orlando Pena, who formerly fronted the Americana-folk band The Midnight Purchase. They released a live EP called “The National Sessions” last year. They discussed Orlando’s origins as a songwriter, living on a goat farm in IL, disc golf, the dissolution of The Midnight Purchase, and what he is working on now.
