Sorority Noise’s Cameron Boucher on Depression, Finding Clifford Jordan’s Music, and Working with Mike Sapone (Phoenix New Times)

I recently got a chance to interview Cameron Boucher from Sorority Noise (whose new album “You’re Not As ___ As You Think” is fucking stellar, to put it mildly). We talked about depression, jazz, and what it was like working with Mike Sapone.

J.R. Robinson on Why Engaging with Social Media and Dying Aren’t So Different (PHOENIX NEW TIMES)
