Music Interview #004 - Mayer Hawthorne
Here’s James Harry Ewert Jr. with the 411 on Mayer Hawthorne. Figured it would be good to put up right before his sold out show at Congress Theater on Friday April 2nd here in Chicago.

Music Interview #001 - Why?
Studio Tour #006 - Will Bryant
The beautiful man you see pictured above is Will Bryant. He is magnificent. Sam and I were lucky enough to meet Will when we were down at SXSW and we hit if off. Unfortunately, we got to his place after dark so the photos are not the most beautiful things you have ever seen but the interview makes up for it. Anyway… let’s cut to the chase. Y’all ready? I now present to you Sir William “Fancy Pants” Byant.

Art Interview #001 - Richard Colman
One of my favorites, Richard Colman, was in town recently and I had the pleasure of meeting him. I talked too much. We agreed on some things. The result of all of it is this interview. Mr. Colman has a show up at Phaiz here in Chicago until the end of March. Read the interview and then peep the show. It is worth it.
