VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Matthew Davies
Our Music Director, 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 singer-songwriter Matthew Davies, who fronts Americana folk band Thriftones. He’s got a new solo record “Middle Child” out now. We discussed Matt’s beginnings as a musician, Thriftones and their recent live EP, songs and themes on his album, songs open to interpretation, and raising a middle child while being a middle child.
