Block 2 Block with Marrow
55 plays

vocalomusicvox:

Every neighborhood in Chicago is as distinct as the voices it produces. Yet, if we look close enough, we’d be surprised to find the similarities between them. In our on-going #Block2Block series, we explore various neighborhoods and the flourishing cultures within them through the voices of musicians living and creating music in those neighborhoods. In this episode, we hear from Macie and Liam of Chicago indie rock band Marrow, who discuss growing up in Mayfair and Old Irving Park, respectively.

The MusicVox airs M-F 6-8 PM CT on 89.5 FM (NWI) / 91.1 FM & 90.7 FM (CHI) / www.vocalo.org
