We welcomed our first photographer to be interviewed for our monthly Artist Sessions.

On the second Friday of November, Okie native Ashford Ravenscroft Thomson hopped into the Spy Van and discussed his passion for photography.

If you haven’t experienced Live on the Plaza for yourself then make sure to check it out tomorrow.

Austin-based rockers What Made Milwaukee Famous visited VZD’s, and they greeted us with this fun and funny session.

If your ears haven’t found Cusp yet then start dewaxing them and give this a look/listen.

Taylor Rapp and company belted out a soulful rendition of “Shivers.”

Although the OKC-based folksters performed a solemn track, their glowing and warm demeanor were more than enough to keep winter’s bite at bay.

You can find “Shivers” on the 2012 album “Nothing Proper.”

We found some new friends in the Nashville-based touring band Kopecky Family Band.

Three family members played a cut off of their 2012 album “Kids Raising Kids.”

Last month we once again grabbed a talented artist and performed an interview/art experiment in a moving vehicle.

We do this every month at Live on the Plaza.

Our Plaza District friends chose Sean Vali and we discussed collaboration, Voltron and the energy of the Oklahoma City art scene.

Come see us tonight in the Plaza for another night of free fun.

It only takes a few moments for your hips to wiggle and your toes to start tapping before you realize there’s something special about Matt Stansberry’s latest project.

Billed as Matt Stansberry & The Romance, the 10-member crew is more than a throwback to catchy ’50s tunes.

No, it’s more like an episode of American Bandstand and each member is just itching to show off their musical chops.

We can only fit so many humans into the van, so Matt had to consolidate the band’s size for this session. He invited his brother Joe Stansberry and backup singers Chandra Graham and Myra Beasley.

Matt chose wisely, and the resulting episode is a reminder of how keeping it simple only looks easy when you’re songs are that good.

 

Honesty is her best policy.

Seconds after Ali Harter finished playing a new song in the Spy Wagon, she blurted, “I fucked it up, but I don’t care.”

That’s enough to make Honest Abe blush. Shortly after, she went on to say that she knows the song will eventually get better.

And we believe her.

Harter is an Okie musician that’s been crafting her acoustic ballads for several years.

Her songs have taken her around the world and landed her on prime-time television.

Lucky for Oklahoma, the new mother hasn’t slowed down her musical prowess and continues to make the rounds in local venues.

Take a couple minutes to get to know Harter because she’s the kind of artist that won’t stick around forever.

That’s the honest truth.
