An Interview with Deaton Chris Anthony

Today we'd like to formally introduce you to a very special Kansas City artist. Andrew Lovgren is a 22 year-old from Olathe, Kansas and is something of a renaissance man for the internet age. He has made two full skate films, travels as a Latter Day Saints missionary, and records a unique and emotional style of R&B music under the name Deaton Chris Anthony.

In his current time at home in-between missions (which he will return to in the fall) he is working to release a new album as Deaton Chris Anthony with an accompanying film and clothing line, as well as perform a series of intimate live shows. Lovgren preferred to conduct the interview over audio recording, but made sure to throw in a special welcome and outro just for Shuttlecock listeners. We have also left some timestamps if listeners would like to hear different parts of the interview. We hope you get to know Lovgren a bit better and get excited for the summer of Deaton.
