Let’s get this out of the way: yes, you’ll most likely know Jacob Anderson as the actor who plays the character Greyworm on Game of Thrones.

Through music, Anderson is able to express himself in a manner that’s both succinctly honest and radiantly fun. To watch him on stage is to see a complete example of abandon, a man who’s truly immersed within his craft. In this episode, Ken Grand-Pierre linked up with Anderson before a sold-out show in Brooklyn to discuss where the Raleigh Ritchie project is now, and where it’s going.
