"'Don't Drink The Water' is like my version of 'Don't Believe the Hype,' Public Enemy. With everything that's happening in the landscape of America right now, I wanted to write a song to just sort of channel us to think for ourselves. My point of view is we still lack clarity and there's a lot of misinformation out there. But I think there's sort of an awakening of our consciousness now;"
"M. Rivers is more than just a catchphrase. His song has raw power, and the backstory of his tattoos are just as powerful. I caught up with the musician and discussed his song, his work, and his ink. Read on, peops."
From an act of rebellion to a curated art collection, M. Rivers of Parts + Labor Records shares how #tattoos document his travels and the incredible experiences he's had on the road as part of Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County's Tattoo Exhibit Artist Series.
This week, we chatted with M. Rivers (who you probably know for his rockin' tunes with Redlight King). He's just released his FIRST solo record, Champion, which features some energetic tunes. Check out our lil' interview below, and listen to the album on Spotify!
The good folks at Spotify (we're looking at you Allison Hagendorf!) gave M. River's "Champion" a boost this week with a beautiful spot on their alternative NEW NOISE playlist!
