14. Interview with Shae Haley @ Ruisrock, Turku, Finland - 8th July 2018
Shae kindly blessed me with an interview this weekend while we were all in Turku, Finland, for Ruisrock (a yearly Finnish summer festival). For those that follow N*E*R*D, you'll know that Shae doesn't really do much press, so this really was a surprise.
I'll keep the details here brief as we'll talk about this on an up-coming podcast, but Shae was happy to chat about pretty much anything - to the point where we went long. Shae was also kind enough to upgrade our already VIP passes to AAA so that we could link up later for some pictures and fan-boying from me and my son.
This led to Brent showing us around backstage, us getting to hang out, and Shae and Pharrell coming to say hello and talk to us. And, yes, I nearly choked up when telling Pharrell how much this all meant to me!
Also, a huge thank you to Brent, again, Shae, Alex, Cori, Mike, Pharrell, Chad, and all of the i am OTHER staff/dancers/band who were so friendly and made us all feel so welcome!
