Recently, Taylor and I sat down with Nelson Jancaterino, the front-man for the folk act The Last Thing You Remember. Nelson is an incredibly friendly, thoughtful man and with a sort of self-deprecating, but jovial sense of humor he kept us both listening for hours, even before and after the interview. His music is catchy, but meaningful; it’s sometimes simple, but he tackles complex issues in a succinct and oddly whimsical way, particularly his song “Hey Mr. Officer”. We talked a great deal about music and politics and what it’s like to be a folk singer-songwriter, some of which is included in part one of our interview below. We hope you enjoy reading Nelson’s words as much as we enjoyed listening to them.
