The AVR Podcast features some of the most interesting people in the city as they talk about what, how, and why they create. Whether it’s music, art, or any other form of creativity, I get the full story on how the vision came to be, and how it then became a reality. The primary focus is on underground musicians, innovative artists, and revolutionary creators of all sorts in the beautiful city of Richmond, Virginia. This program aims to be a meeting ground for creators and innovators of all types, a place to share ideas, and a place to tell the stories of the countless creative individuals and organizations that make RVA such a wonderful and exciting place to be. We try to talk as much about the history of my guests and their specific realm of creativity as much as possible, but occasionally we get side tracked and talk about whatever the hell we want!
This past week, I had the opportunity of meeting with and talking to a very talented new group of artists called Bland Camp. It consists of Pierce Love, 2~Da, and Halfro. Pierce and 2~Da combine a variety of styles in their music, ranging from rapping to singing and varying constantly in flow and delivery. Halfro, also a rapper, is more inclined to call himself a producer, and over the years has become well versed in making catchy, powerful beats at a rapid pace. I speak with the artists about their writing, recording, and production process, positive and negative experiences while performing, and the importance of positivity. The group members all agree, spreading positivity, being genuine, and having a sense of dedication are the most basic and important things to do as a person and as an artist.
