Summer Recap: At The Knitting Factory With Blind Benny & More


Its been quite a hectic summer but one of the things that’s dominant about summers in NYC is the overwhelming amount of shows filled with new talent.  Shawn Lawrence James, a young guy from Brooklyn, has an ear for new talent and puts on shows throughout NYC featuring the most buzz worthy up and coming artists.  His last show at the Knitting Factory featured a band called Blind Benny.  The band features a familiar face, Jade who released her first project as a solo act and is now part of a band.  The show also featured Rachel Brown and another singer by the name of Anthony Flammia.

I got a chance to interview Jade (of Blind Benny) and Anthony Flammia after their sets.  Check out the videos to watch a bit of their performances and my interviews with them.

Jade speaks on what she’s been up to since her last EP It’s My Heart, Cookie and the process of branding the new band she’s apart of and more.

Anthony was definitely a pleasant surprise and as a new talent this was his very first interview.  We spoke about what inspired him to get into singing, and his album that he’s releasing.

The next show is in a couple of weeks.  Details and link to buy tickets below.
