VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with James Sauer
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 to James Sauer, who currently plays in indie rock band The Hatchets, psych pop band L’Resorts, and with Mark Waldoch and the Hallelujah Ward. He’s also got a solo project of his own, Captain Beatty. We discussed James’ beginnings writing songs in his late 20s, his various bands, his new project, gaining the confidence to express emotions through music, and getting kept up by horror movies.
