Milwaukee Comedy: Johnny Beehner

Apr 15, 2015

Recently, Milwaukee Comedy's Matt Kemple and WUWM's Rachel Owens had the pleasure of sitting down, chatting and laughing with comedian Johnny Beehner. Beehner is from Milwaukee and has been working on perfecting his craft since his College years. He found himself spending most of his Thursday nights doing stand-up at The Safe House restaurant downtown.

In-Studio Session: Hero Jr.

Apr 8, 2015

We just recently had the pleasure of talking with Indianapolis –based band, Hero Jr., in the WUWM studio. The band, which consists of four members, Evan Haughey (Guitar/Lead Vocals) Matthew Haughey (Drums/Vocals) David DuBrava (Bass/vocals) Ken Rose (Guitar/Vocals), likes to think of themselves as creating “meat and potatoes rock and roll.”


 With such a bevy of Americana/folk rock artists like ‘Mumford and Sons’ or ‘The Lumineers’ just to name a couple, it is quite a thing for a band to stand out in the genre. So how does the Arizona-based band, ‘Jared and The Mill’, stand-out from their already established musical peers? Well, as the members of the band would tell you – sticking to their roots has a lot to do with it.

Album of the Week: The Damnwells

Mar 25, 2015

With inspirations drawing from the likes of: Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Sam Cooke, Billy Dee Williams and…Han Solo and E.T. (Yes, that one alien from the movie), it’s no surprise that singer/songwriter, Alex Dezen, is capable of creating music that can touch on any number of topics. Just about 15 years ago, Alex and three others came together and formed a band, The Damnwells, who would go on to be pretty successful.  Seven years ago marks the last time anyone has seen a new project from the band and its original members.

Album of the Week: Great Lake Drifters

Mar 11, 2015

After years of making rounds at music festivals, bars and other miscellaneous concert venues, a Milwaukee alt. country and roots rock band is gearing up for their first full length release. Great Lake Drifters are about to put themselves on your music radar with their upcoming album, Radio Picture Show. With a sound that never quite sits contently within one genre, the band is able to maintain the attention of your ears.

Ex Fabula: Oops!

Art Montes

Oops, we did it again. No, not the Britney Spears song. Our February Story Slam, Degrees of Separation, was our second sold out show of 2015! 

Album of the Week: Liz Longley

Mar 4, 2015

Honest transparency isn’t the easiest thing to come by in musicians these days. Often times, music is shrouded by a façade to fit a certain image or appeal. This is definitely not the case with singer/songwriter Liz Longley. The Nashville-based artist takes pride in the honesty of each track she writes. Having lived in and out of minivans for a large part of her musical journey; she never has a shortage of true stories to depict.

Inside Jokes With Jonny Fritz

Mar 3, 2015

The six-string successors of country music are tuning up, and it's Jonny Fritz's turn at the mic. Contrary to the country charlatans who purport the genre today, some authentic performers are releasing compelling work free of the recycled cliches that pervade contemporary country music. 

The Living Statues Come To Life

Feb 25, 2015
Rachel Owens

Hold on to your hat people. That is the first and last word of advice I have. They are The Living Statues, a rock n’ roll trio based here in the Cream City. They mix the pop sensibilities of the British Invasion with “explosive garage rock textures.”

SoFar Sounds: In the Middle of an Empty Room

Feb 24, 2015

  In December WUWM@Nite sent Skubs to check out Milwaukee’s local SoFar Concert series. The artists featured this time were D’Amato, Jordin Bass, Thriftones and Klassik - all from Milwaukee -  and played the old Stonelfy venue, which is now Company Brewing. Skubs had a chance to speak with each of the artists about family heritage, how each song was conceived, and got them to reveal their musical guilty pleasures.
