When I was an intern then later a temp at Interscope, Kelly Clancy use to have my grab files and print them for approval. The emails were from Slang Inc and I use to love the fonts, design and spacing of the lettering on all the project. Years later I find myself in NYC sitting across from the brainchild of it all at the RedBull Studios.

Slang Inc is responsible for the visual aesthetics that I love in music. And it’s still around in shops, boutiques and packaging. During our conversation (thanks to Jon Oliver) we find out that Julian (Slang Inc) actually won a Grammy for Best Packaging on a Miles Davis Box set!! We talk about the creative process of putting together a visual in some shape or form that coincides with the project at hand. I learned a lot on this one. Hope you enjoy!

Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Emily King swung through the RedBull Studios in NYC to talk about her journey of ups and downs plus a special treat to meet her mother who served as a wonderful backbone to the artist! Emily opens up about label deals that attempted to change who she was as a person and her reaction. This was a great conversation that left me pretty inspired about this music industry thanks to Emily’s hope and talent. Plus Mama King jumps in with ultimate wisdom! Hope you dig!
