In this clip from Blues musician Chris Thomas King speaks with a group of students at Loyola University, New Orleans, about making it today in the music business – setting and achieving goals, managing time, managing your art as a business, and more.
Baton Rouge, LA, native Chris Thomas King is probably best known for his role as blues singer “Tommy Johnson” in the film “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” Under his own name, King has been recording albums exploring the intersections between blues and hip-hop since the late 1980s. His most recent album, “Rise” was written and recorded after losing his home and recording studio to Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and explores the aftermath of that disaster.
