MAKERS Episode X: Ben Mabry and Brent Holloman of Beta Radio

by Daniel Corey

Greetings, DangerKatts! It’s good to be back with my inaugural 2021 broadcast of MAKERS, where I speak with artists who make and shape culture! This week, I had a chance to debut MAKERS Q2 in a big way with folk/Americana artists Ben Mabry and Brent Holloman, aka Beta Radio!

From Wilmington, NC indie folk duo Beta Radio artfully and carefully piece together songs with an architect’s attention to detail and a carpenter’s work ethic. This handcrafted assembly shines through on the band’s newly released EP, Afraid of Love, out now.

Afraid of Love follows the band’s acclaimed 2018 full-length release, Ancient Transition. Atwood Magazine called it “a must-listen for 2018 and a powerful showing of what’s to come from this artist-to-watch,” and The Wild Honey Pie remarked it “sounds as if it should be playing during an important life moment, like seeing the northern lights for the first time or during a first kiss that took way too long to occur.”

Rooted in vocal harmonies, acoustic and electric guitar, piano, and banjo, Beta Radio’s ethereal-folk sound is the result of a decade-long collaboration between Ben Mabry and Brent Holloman.

Check out the interview below to get the lowdown on Beta Radio and their new EP, Afraid of Love!
