VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Annie Grizzle
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 experimental sound artist and poet Annie Grizzle, whose debut EP “I Wake With Eyes the Sound of Clarinet” dropped in April. Originally from Milwaukee, she now lives in Chicago. They discussed Annie’s origins as a poet in the underground NYC scene, the power that sound has over your emotions, sensory processing sensitivities, the dense experiments on her new EP, and her collage-based approach to creative expression.
