Gregg Hale has been treated well by the music industry, having a chance to play with the British band Spiritualized and go on tour. Instead of resting on his laurels and forgetting about everyone else, he’s decided to help give back to the music community. He can be seen judging music shows in Salt Lake City and recording promising new upcoming bands. He’s a valuable resource for many musicians in Salt Lake. PS – he’s nice. And approachable. You heard me.
I’ve known Young Sim for a few years. His songs reflect who he is- hardworking, optimistic, and uplifting. Sim has been pursuing his dreams in the Salt Lake Valley, introducing his own brand of positive “feel good” rap onto the scene. This interview definitely shows Sim’s character. He is an intelligent and political young man as well, and the thing I like best about him is that he’s truly trying to make a difference in the world around him. He mentions the beginnings of hip hop culture, the corporate structure in the Music Business, and being yourself. He talks about his life on his MySpace page, if you want to know more about that, and I definitely recommend two songs, “We Grindin” and “Respect Me.”
