Ep.89 | Mallory Shotwell – Founder and Director of CULTIVATE on local art, community, ”making it”, & marketing Creative Ops

As a former Montessori teacher, Mallory Shotwell's interest in art and business make her a great person to start a group like CULTIVATE, a collection of artists, teachers, and industry folks. With the acquisition of their new space in Grand Rapids, Michigan, they'll be able to highlight contemporary artists and teach community-based art & business classes, while also serving as a "traditional" art gallery for art shows and installations.

Creative Ops | Ep.20 | Jake Bryan – HEARTSICK Drummer & Music Lover Creative Ops

As a drummer, I was excited to nerd out with my new buddy, Jake Bryan. Jake is the drummer for HEARTSICK, the Lansing-based band that's been playing loud music for 20 years. I started following this band even before Jake joined. As you'll find out, he joined the band around the same time I left the Lansing area for good. Jake came from a musical family, where his passion for drumming was highly encouraged from a young age. In his teens, he found his passion as a traveling performer with the school band when they performed in Florida and New York City. Before joining Heartsick, he played drums in a Final Fantasy themed metal band–something I wasn't aware was a thing.

Creative Ops | Ep.4 | Heartsick vocalist Alfonso Civile rocks my podcast! Creative Ops

Alfonso Civile of the Lansing-based metal band Heartsick joined me for a discussion via the magic of the internet. A few of the things we talked about: the 20 year history of the band (formerly Know Lyfe), how they're adapting during the stay-at-home order, what they have planned for the future,  the band's creative process, and more! Alfonso is super creative, and just a really nice guy. I hope to have him back sometime; I could've talked to him way longer. Hope you enjoy our chat as much as I did.  Find out what else he and the band are up to, how to watch/listen/support them in these odd times: Facebook @heartsickband Twitter @heartsickband Instagram @heartsickband Heartsick Official YouTube Still reading? Really? OK. Well…if you like Creative Ops, one way to let me know: rate the show. Or leave a review.  Or subscribe. Or do any combo. If you do all 3, I'll be your best friend for a whole day (weekends and holidays excluded). Check out my website, www.christophertallon.com, for show updates, blogs, and random fun! Follow and connect with me, Christopher Tallon, on social media. I'm on Instagram, FaceBook, and Twitter. Still reading? Why? Go listen.  -CT
