Vitus Collective is a group of young artists and musicians in and around Anchorage. Members include Machel, Husse, Zane Penny, Charlie Stockard, Maezelle, Richie, and Saint Deon. In the summer 0f 2019, they held a series of shows at the Kincaid Bunkers that brought in an audience of around 300 attendees.

In this episode we hear from Machel and Husse, about the origins of Vitus Collective, the music they make together, and how the group operates; as well as Zane Penny (a former ATMI producer) about shooting music videos for the group, and making his own foray into songwriting.

Both interviews were conducted by ATMI senior producer Cornilius Nelson.

Hosted by Devin Shreckengost.
