This weekend, if you happen to be driving through or around Brookfield, you might hear a faint roar coming from the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts.

Christopher Denny: building bridges on the road to recovery and stardom

Published Aug. 11, 2014

Folk country singer Christopher Denny talks a lot about things in twos and especially the idea of bridging two seemingly polar opposites. It makes sense since Denny himself, performing at Turner Hall Ballroom on Aug. 18 alongside Strand of Oaks, is a fascinating amalgam of seemingly disparate elements.

UK duo Royal Blood quickly climbing its way to rock royalty

Published July 26, 2014

For just two guys, Royal Blood is certainly making a lot of noise. With the band's debut album set to arrive next month, the raucous duo of Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher is now on the road, with a stop at The Rave Monday, July 28 next up on the schedule. Before then, however, OnMilwaukee.com got a chance to chat with Thatcher about the band's origins, its inspirations and the all-too-deservedly forgotten '90s band Aqua.

A chat with chamber blues creator Corky Siegel

Published July 19, 2014

All musicians create new music. Even the most derivative Top 40 hit features a new combination of notes and lyrics. Very few, however, can claim to have come up with a whole new genre of sound. Chicago blues extraordinaire Corky Siegel is one of those few.
