VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Brett Newski
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 singer-songwriter, nomad, podcaster, 90’s kid, and failed hipster Brett Newski, whose recent singles “Totalitarian Theme Song” and “Lie in All Honesty” have dropped so far this year; his latest album “Don’t Let the Bastards Get You Down” came out last April. He hosts the podcast “Dirt From the Road”, where he interviews fellow artists about unusual stories from touring. They discussed foods we’re afraid of, bullying culture, Brett’s time living in Vietnam, interviewing his favorite artists on his podcast, and the difference between nooks and crannies.
