Artist Interviews Cains & Abels

Chicago rock group Cains & Abels released their second full-length album My Life Is Easy on Whistler Records in March 2012. Life Is Easy represents an honest, beautifully crafted tale of nature-inspired lyrics rooted in stories of struggle.

Katie Owens sat down with David Sampson & Josh Ippel over beer, sans koozies, in a River North loft to delve into the meaning of C/A’s stories illustrated on their latest album, discuss hearing silence, and discover what makes their lives easy.

News Occupy Chicago Looks to the Arts to Expand Awareness, Attention and Vision

Josh Fox and Dan Epstein tell us how OCRAC is using the arts to keep the Occupy movement front and center and to expand the focus of Occupy beyond just the economy.
