Episode 64 – Thomas James

Thomas James has been deep in the art game since college, but he didn’t go to art school. He made his art world connections out in Western MD, an area more known for its mountains than its art. Those connections gave Thomas the experience and Rolodex to make moves in the Annapolis art scene, expanding his reach to D.C. and Baltimore. Listen as we talk about tattoos, the idea of a curator’s life and the reality of a curator’s life, and the road Thomas took to get where he is today.

Episode 63 – Derrick Adams

I’m convinced the universe willed this interview. The first opportunity I had to interview Derrick fell through, and the next opportunity I had was on November 2nd, my birthday. Turning 30 was big for me, and the fact I got to interview an internationally renowned artist (with his works appearing in hit TV shows) was very reaffirming to me. Enough about me though, listen as Derrick talks about his interest in art, the disinterest he had in making money off art, and why he doesn’t consider himself an optimist, but an “alternatist”. It’s not a word yet, maybe Derrick can use it to create a new art movement.

Episode 62 – DJ Dagm

Dagm’s an old friend and co-worker. Back then he was lifeguarding and running track at school, and I was fresh out of college and lifeguarding waiting to find a real job. One day, Dagm came up to me and said something I’ll never forget. Listen as we discuss Dagm’s time away from home, what it felt like to come back, the passion that drives him, and the lessons learned along the way.

Episode 61 – Josh Stokes

Josh Stokes is a Baltimore singer with a true passion for music. In the first of many episodes of what I’m dubbing the “Moose House mini series”, I’m going to be interviewing artists and creatives that have used The Moose House studio to record their music.Josh’s talent for music started at an early age and the price of pursuing his dream was a little steep for his parents. Though it had nothing to do with money, some say your image is just as valuable. Listen as we talk about moving f from East to West Baltimore, the difference between singing for the studio and singing for a live audience, and why the most talented performers can be the laziest.

Episode 60 – Milly Vanderwood

It’s been a few months since I’ve published a new episode. This one doesn’t have an intro or outro; Im moving into my fiancee’s apartment (I also got engaged) and packed up my “nice” microphone and everything I use in my home studio. BUT AS ALWAYS bringing you the laid-back yet immersive interviews that won me a Best of Baltimore 2019 award from Baltimore Magazine! Sit back and enjoy as Milly and I talk moving from the city to the county, his journey from rapper to manager to gallery owner, and the changes the gallery has gone through over the years.

Episode 59 – Fagan Harris

It’s been a while since I released an episode and things will be moving a little slower for Local Color. I’m working on another project with a Youtube music channel and it’s a good opportunity for me to use my talents and get paid! But, this is Local Color and you’re here for great interviews with Baltimore’s premier thought leaders! Fagan Harris is one such thought leader. As CEO of Baltimore Corps he’s working to provide Baltimoreans opportunities and access to jobs, job training, and other programs that help small business owners. Listen as we discuss hard lessons, respoinding to community feedback, and Fagan remains calm amidst one of my worst fears.
