Interview with Joey Kluesener
Joey is an enthusiastic artist with great technical skill and an effortlessly sharp aesthetic sense. It's hard to not get fired up talking with him about making music in our great valley of the sun. We dove into how he manages his various vocations, the many paths he has taken as a musical artist, and even touched on the origins of Oh My Ears!
Okapi Duo Interview by Bill Clay
Interview with Okapi Duo by OME Program Director Bill Clay. The Okapi duo has an immediately attractive sound. The unexpected combination of dark, poignant, interwoven cello and double bass with tenor vocals that soar polyrhythmically is striking. Okapi have a rich well of influences and they were eager to share all about them in a heartfelt and passionate conversation after their recent show. What a great way to kick off Oh My Ears’ Cartel concert series!
