Last Night’s Mixtape covers all types of good music, and in all locations around the world. Luckily, it just so happens that one of my personal favorite musicians happens to live right here in my home base of Seattle. His name is Ahamefule Oluo, and he and vocalist Okanomode are collaborators on a project called Reverie. The concept? A ten-piece pop opera, based on the theme of making choices that you know you will regret, but that feel right at the time.
I was able to catch up with Aham and Okanomode, and get a quick interview with them. It’s a little window into two of the most fertile creative minds in the Northwest. And for Seattle folks, their show is coming up this Saturday, at Lo-Fi, and tickets are going fast – get them at Now I’m Fine, the official site for the project (and yes, I don’t like calling things “projects” either, but there may be no better way to describe this undertaking).
It’s LxNxM’s first time doing an interview, so bear with our technical awesomeness!
