I Love Memphis Podcast #18 (September 2015) (56:00)

By: Holly Whitfield, Kevin Cerrito

Description: On this month’s I Love Memphis Podcast, Holly and Kevin sit down with international funk and soul musician, nurse, and Grizz fan Hope Clayburn. During the interview, Hope talks about traveling the world to represent Memphis music, her favorite gigs, what it’s like to lead a “double life” as an ICU nurse at Regional One Health (formerly known as The Med). Then she pulls out a flute and starts beatboxing.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
