VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Tori Yocum
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 multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Tori Yocum. She plays in Velvetears, Lucky Goat, Buenaventura, with SSAANN, and with Will Rose. They discussed Tori’s origins playing music with her family, each of the projects she’s in, the wonderful acoustics of Angelo’s Piano Lounge, figuring out her own songwriting, and being good friends with her bandmates.
