Last week I spent about a week in Memphis, Tennessee capturing Sun Studios, Graceland, Stax and of course the legendary Beale Street.
On the last day of the assignment, we wrapped shooting at around 1am and I had the opportunity kick with it Lawrence "Boo" Mitchell in a parking outside of a spot called Beauty Shop.
It’s crazy because about an hour before meeting Boo, I was talking to my friend Jay about the podcast and he immediately started talking about how I should get Boo on show. He said he’d set it up and in my mind, I thought this would take month to make happen. Meaning I’d catch Boo when I was back in the city because I had to fly out in on the morning.
Shortly after that conversation, guess who walks through the door? Yup you guessed it, Boo.
I told the story to Boo and he said, “We call that Memphis serendipity”.
In this episode we talk about the early days of Royal Studios, wearing the hat of a producer, the false feel, putting love in the cooking, Uptown Funk, and much more.
I’m outta here, enjoy the talk.
Stay Up to Date with Lawrence "Boo" Mitchell
