In the last decade, Spencer Wells captured the music scene in Wisconsin, one that didn’t look or sound like anything else. From basement noise shows to sold out festivals, from folk singers to art rappers, a picture emerged of a unique — and genre defiant— music community. In pairing his photographs with the prose of the journalists, poets, and musicians who understood their respective influences best, Wells tells the story of a thriving and innovative culture through portraits of six artists who shaped it.
