VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Jake Hess
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.
Ben sat down with artist, promoter, singer-songwriter and movie buff Jake Hess, who was last on Mr. Nice Guy a couple of years ago as part of heavy metal band Ahabs Ghost. He’s currently focusing on his solo acoustic project Wylie Jakobs, promoting/hosting events at Bremen Cafe and creating art/flyers. In fact, Jake created the current Mr. Nice Guy logo. They discussed the dissolving of Ahabs Ghost, AI art and the emotion behind creating, hosting the monthly burlesque variety show BremSin, Wylie Jakobs’ 2020 album “Unmarked Graves”, and Jake’s top 10 movies of 2022!
