Venue: Ella’s Americana Folk Art Cafe, Tampa, Florida–December 7, 2018
I heard Johnny Mile & the Kilometers were going to be close to me, so of course, I dropped by to see them. This is my fourth time seeing them, and this time I had a chance to talk to them in a (sort of) quiet environment, so I’ll let them speak for themselves – but I also have some visuals to entertain you as you listen!

When not in custody, I've been involved with music, photography, and writing my entire life. Ever since I was a young boy and played those silver tunes, I've had the beat, but being a drummer didn't suit me so I became a lead singer, which lasted a few years. Settling down, sort of, I translated my knowledge of audio and glib tongue into mobile emcee work, and my training as a photographer and videographer into a living in the wedding, party, bar/bat mitzvah, and entertainment industry. During this time I also managed to bamboozle my way into a master's degree in writing, worked for a couple of magazines (yes, I took photos for a nudist magazine!), have photographed hotels, done commercial work (shot the cover of Tablet and Capsule magazine), published a few articles, hosted some public access shows (a couple times in drag, but that's another story), and generally made a nuisance of myself until I landed here.
