Making a Scene Presents an Interview with Hanna PKHanna PK is a solid pianist, soulful vocalist, and vibrant performer, born and raised in South Korea, currently residing in Rochester, NY. She plays a wide variety of the blues & swing, old school folk, and boogie-woogie. She has a dynamic songwriting style - ranging from a funky tune with socially conscious lyrics to a mournful slow blues, from a pop-edged ballad to an uplifting swinging number, and from barrelhouse boogie to jazz. Her seemingly sweet and soft-spoken appearance often leads to surprise when hearing her rich, resonating voice that goes from a whisper to belting with intensity. Her piano style is much more lyrical and imaginative than simply repeating so-called “licks”, though she knows when to toss them in the mix for a thrill, and is always in the groove. And what draws the audience closer to her heartfelt, honest music are her genuine passion, and the originality that comes from within.

Their collective chemistry was immediate, vibrant, and exploratory. After two years of cultivation, The Orange Goodness officially launched their first single, Dare I Do, spring of 2020.

Making a Scene Presents an Interview with Russell JamesRussell is autistic and disabled. Playing music is obviously a lifelong passion (or in autism-speak “special interest”) and he has often said it’s a compulsion to write and play. Playing music has offered Russ many opportunities he would not have had otherwise: He has toured the country extensively and gone on many adventures in National Parks and cities between shows. He loves living out of his bright-red Ford E-Series Van (he traded in his trusty Honda Element Camper, The Gray Haven early in 2019). Sleeping in nature and coming to shows smelling like a campfire or fresh off a river from fly-fishing are the norm for Russell. He couldn’t do this any other way, and he still needs a great deal of support while playing live shows. He is authentic on stage, pouring himself into his songs and the performance while being refreshingly open with his autism.

GUISE are a breath of fresh air , there never was a better time for a band like Guise with the energy, talent and fun to come along . In this interview you will hear the voices of 3 people with dreams to make music exciting and fun again. On what I’ve seen so far the excitement and fun factor is well on the way . Another interview you will definitely not want to miss!"GUISE is the heart and soul of pop-folk singer-songwriter Jess Guise, who has been writing and playing songs live since her teens. Possessed of a remarkable folk lilt and with influences coming from Dar Williams, Anais Mitchell and Stevie Nicks, she sings with delicacy whilst imparting vicious asides - by turns sweet and haunting. Jess heads up the four-piece band that form GUISE, together with bassist Titas Halder, co-vocalist Laura Hanna, and drummer Keith Barry. Close vocal harmonies are almost spectral, whilst Titas’s bass emboldens Jess’s songs with a warm tone, and Keith’s jazz influenced underpinning gives GUISE’s songs a swing not often found in folk.
