Interview with Annessa Ferris

Episode 3 get it here.

Episode 3 finds Timothy Kimo Brien talking with Annessa Ferris in Tampa Florida which she considers similar to living on the surface of the sun. 

 

Tim and Annessa first met on her prom date with a mutual friend 22 years ago. They discuss their shared hometown of Rockford Illinois, screw capital and forest city of the world. The former Mayor of Rockford used to be Annessa’s neighbor. 

Annessa is primarily known as a singer and songwriter that dabbles occasionally into writing poetry and personal diary. She loves the collaboration of music and being in a band with other musicians. 

Her first band was a local group in Rockford called “Coconut Champaign”, then she moved onto another group as a special guest “The Fuzz” a cool funk band in Rockford. Many of the gigs she played in Rockford were as a special guest and then she sang for Harlan Jefferson and sang with his band. Red and the PlayRay Players hired Annessa as a back up singer for a time and played the RAMI’s, Rockford’s Musical awards. Most recently she sang and collaborated with Mana Kintorso for 5 years. 

Now in Florida, she has put her Art aside while transitioning to a new job and career, but still is doing Karaoke and we discover that both Annessa and Tim sing “Kiss” Princes version while performing in Karaoke bars. 

Discussion continues about finding time for inspiration while trying to balance life and the importance of surrounding yourself with like minded people.  

We end today’s interview with the Satanic Seven questions and Annessa scores 6 out of 7 questions right. Of special note is the airspeed velocity question.

After

I thought I knew how to fold up this canopy

It ended up yesterday in the city dump metal recycling 

 This is what I wanted for my first book fair

It looked the part

It drew attention

It said to me you are a professional

But you’ve seen the first picture

You know how the story ends, 

Or do you

I didn’t sell out

But I did pass out books and cards and postcards

Projects I’m working on

Projects I’m completing

Many times I feel the first picture is life

Trying to fold it up nicely into a neat package

Doesn’t always go as planned

We learn so much through our mistakes

The second picture is what we think we want

But there were 100 other canopies at the book festival, some red, orange and green

I ended up with a borrowed pale green canopy, got help from some pro’s who do these festivals all the time and a good friend helped me pack it away

I learned more from them than by doing it all myself 

It was a great day and I’d do it again

See you next festival 

10 Nov DC podcasters, I’ll be the one in a neck brace on pain killers and muscle relaxers

We start episode 2 with the history between Nelson and Tim, starting off in 2009 with the Vet Art Project where Nelson was mistaken for someone else.

We move onto the infamous “White Obama” incident with Salsation and Salsa Sketch in 2009 and how being wooden, even pertified onstage can be a blessing in disguise.

Delving further into the current happenings with Nelson, he discusses a new project with Salsation that will be auditioning for actors in October/Nov time frame full length show in March/April 2018, very political show. Los Improviachi’s new shows in October and impeachment party trials are on special. Order your Impraviachi gram today.

Nelson talks about why being a guitar player is not what you would expect and the type of women that he catches, you probably want to cover the kids ears for this portion, but then again you may fit into his demographic.

Before we hit the Satanic Seven Questions we discover a new book/manifesto that Nelson is writing, 6 pages a year about Improv, stay tuned eventually he will get this bad boy published.

Big take away is artists gatekeepers, STOP Being a Dick.

Tada the Seven Satanic Questions and Nelson scores a 5 out of 7, as the first guest he does admirably.
