On this week's episode I have a chat with local tattoo artists Nichole Smith and Jesse Pinette from Presque Isle and I've got tunes from the very awesome Aroostook County band, Mellow Endeavor.

Aroostook County natives Nichole Smith and Jesse Pinette own and operate their own tattoo shop out of Presque Isle. They are award winning tattoo artists and experts in their craft. In this week's episode we discuss their history, how they got into tattooing and started their own business.

Jesse and Nichole

Emerging from the depths of Aroostook County, Mellow Endeavor has been stirring up jams since 2010. Their energetic grooves and northern flavored folk are both grounding to the body and stimulating to the inner sound factory. Whether you're dancing with the wind or sprawled out on the grass, Mellow Endeavor has all the elements needed to resonate the optimal music experience.
