Interviews 2024

Project Overview

Welcome to IlluminaInterviews, a unique initiative dedicated to shedding light on the journeys, inspirations, and challenges faced by artists and social media influencers within our community. Our project aims to provide a platform where these voices can share their stories, fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation for diverse forms of expression.

Originally focused on conducting in-depth interviews, IlluminaInterviews has now pivoted to provide free space and equipment for artists to produce their own audio recordings and content. We have constructed two recording booths at our space, enabling multiple artists to work simultaneously. Additionally, we assist artists in creating music videos, all free of charge! While we have expanded our services, we still provide interviews on demand to capture and share the unique narratives of our local talent.

By offering these resources and support, we empower artists to bring their creative visions to life and share them with a broader audience. Through our efforts, we aim to capture and amplify the narratives of those who might not yet have reached mainstream recognition. By highlighting the experiences of these individuals, we strive to inspire, educate, and connect our audience, celebrating the richness of our local talent.

To further support our mission, we offer low-cost Mic Drop or Studio Videos for artists at a significantly reduced price. These sessions help cover the cost of additional equipment purchases and travel to concert events. We also provide Mic Drop videos at concert venues in collaboration with Darrion McMahon and his promotion group G1ENT, which organizes shows for local talent in Cleveland, Ohio. My presence at these venues ensures we capture the dynamic performances of our local artists.

The recording booths and Mic Drop video sessions are available by appointment only every Wednesday and Thursday from 3 PM to 6 PM. This dedicated time allows us to support artists consistently and ensure they have access to the resources they need to succeed.

This project is made possible through the generous support of Neighbor Up Action Grant, Tender Hearts Crusade, Real Smoqed Barbeque, and Rock and Roll City Studios. Together, we are building a vibrant and inclusive artistic community.

Explore our content, meet our featured artists, and join us in celebrating the power of storytelling and creativity.
