Home Grown: First Steps: King Gemini and Ty Copper

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, Leslie leaves us behind leaving David to get behind the mic with two guests. First, he talks to rapper King Gemini. A Charlottesville native, he’s just back in town from living in California and he’s taking the first steps towards getting a music career on track. David talks to KG about beginnings and we listen to his first single. Next Ty Cooper returns to the show. After years of documentary filmmaking, he’s attempting his first narrative film project. David and Ty talk about his conception for the work, the need to be cruel in writing, and about some of the ins and outs of filming your work. Every piece of art has a moment when it starts, and we’re here to talk about those moments just as we talk about finished pieces on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
