I hate to make other people’s accomplishments about me, but this was too funny. Every year, City Pages runs a “Best of the Twin Cities” feature, honoring different local artists and establishments. I’ve been in it before, as have lots of people. This year, I noticed something cool; not sure if anyone else has made this connection yet:
Now, aside from these artists being phenomenally talented and wonderful people whom everyone should know about and support, does anyone see the connection between the three of them? I’ll give you a hint:
Me and deM atlaS made an album with Rube under the name Sifu Hotman. Me and Claire made an album called A Loud Heart. And me and Big Cats made two albums together, the most recent being You Better Weaponize. Click the links to listen to and/or buy them.
ALSO, the Re-Verb open mic, organized by TruArtSpeaks (the organization I work with as comm director and as a roster artist), was awarded best open mic!
All of this is less about how much impact and influence I have, and more about how good I am at latching onto talented people before they blow up, haha. Congratulations to everyone!
