I’m currently tour managing Arliss Nancy from Fort Collins, Colorado. I procrastinated long enough and did not get my passport in time to join the band in Montreal for Pouzza Fest. What did I do instead? I went to visit friends and family in New York City! While I was there I managed to do a few interviews!

The first of those interviews was with James Carroll, lead vocalist and guitar player for Make Do and Mend. We talked a bit about life, the universe and everything, but mostly we sat down and talked about the singer’s early upbringing in Connecticut, how he ended up in Boston as well as how Make Do and Mend came to life and their joining into the ranks of superlabel: Rise Records.

This interview was done at the Knitting Factory in New York on the first night of their month long tour with Cheap Girls and Diamond Youth.
