Berlin Tapes is series of interviews shining a light on the diverse community of artists who call the beautiful mess of a city, Berlin, home. Rather than discussing the work of the artist, we focus on the circumstances by which their work manifests. The mental habits, the routines, or the lack thereof needed to create.
Above all, we explore the disposition of the artist – the psychological circumstances by which the work has come about, and the characteristics that enable a person and their practice to grow.
Dark folk duo Rufus Coates and Jess Smith, alongside alt-country act, Ruby Jean Rose, join us for a discussion on the trails and tribulations of being musicians in Berlin’s emerging folk scene. With live performances from each.
