It’s me, Seth Johnson, back with another update on my many adventures.
It’s been quite a while since I last spoke with you, which means there’s a lot to catch up on. Rather than giving you the entire rundown, I’ll cover a few of my favorite recent articles.
Yesterday, I published a story on Indianapolis rapper Willis, who dropped his latest project, Welcome to the Universe, on Friday. In the story, Willis talks about his approach to new projects, saying he treats every new album like it’s own movie, in a way.
This story on Willis serves as an example of the local profiles I write. In the last month or so, I’ve also written profiles on Indy soul artist Dorsh and Indy emcee Kid Quill, and will have more coming out soon on Okara Imani, Skypp and Wolfi. If there are other types of music stories you’d like me to pursue, feel free to let me know using this interactive poll, where I ask you the reader to help steer my music coverage in 2020.
As you may also know, I have many other passions outside of music, including comedy and Pacers basketball. Since the start of the Pacers season, I’ve written two installments of my Home Dipo column, which intermingles player quotes with my own personal analysis. This week, I’ll be attending key home games against the Clippers and Celtics, and I invite you to come say hello if you spot me in the Bankers Life Fieldhouse press box.
In terms of comedy, I also recently had the pleasure of chatting with Indianapolis comedian Ryan Niemiller, who finished third on Season 14 of America’s Got Talent. Ryan and I connected on a personal level, being that we both live with impairments. That said, I think the interview makes for a unique look inside his road to stardom.
Lastly, I’ll remind you that you can support NUVO by purchasing a membership or simply donating to our cause as a locally driven media outlet. All of your contributions directly fund reporting from myself and fellow NUVO writers, who greatly appreciate your gracious giving.
I think that’s about all I have to share with you for now. I hope you all have a fantastic holiday season. Get out there and enjoy a live performance or two before we meet again!
