Radio Milwaukee’s new video series Yours Truly brings you up-close portraits of artists reflecting on their creative journey.
Drawing from Arthur Aron’s “36 Questions That Lead to Love,” musicians reveal a glimpse into their lives and childhoods; their sources of inspiration and joy; their aspirations and fears. And you get to sit down next to them.
Whether it’s an album, a song or an EP, an artist’s music is their letter to the world.
This series allows them to step off stage to deliver that letter to you personally, adding another paragraph they can sign off, “Yours Truly.”
