Behind the Scenes with Poi Dog Pondering's Frank Orrall (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Interviewing Frank Orrall of Poi Dog Pondering for Fear No ART Chicago was a huge thrill for many reasons. Firstly, I have been following him for years, and never imagined that such a behind-the-scenes interview was possible. In addition, Frank opens up about the Poi Dog Pondering early years, how he creates music and paintings and his creative process, and what things inspire him now -- all of which he tells me from the corners of his home studio and while making a fantastic lunch in his home kitchen!

Check out the video and step inside the world of music genius, Frank Orrall.

Poi Dog Pondering is performing at The Vic Theater in Chicago on February 4th and February 5th. Click here for more information.
