The Love Markets return to TV's "ArtZone with Nancy Guppy"

The Love Markets and I kicked off 2017 with a new episode of "ArtZone with Nancy Guppy" on January 27, airing on Seattle Channel through Feb. 9. We loved performing "Beauty Factory" and "Heaven Song" (both from our 2016 album Beauty Factory) live in the TV studio at Georgetown Stables and clowning around with Nancy. Also featured in the episode: a cool piece from director Chris Barnes on the band's origins and my theatre history with Weimar art!
