Okkervil River’s Will Sheff Talks with artist Will Schaff

“Interesting Rock Talk. No, Really.” that’s the headline at the New York Times for the above interview between Okkervil River lead singer and songwriter Will Sheff and Will Schaff the artist behind all of Okkervil River’s iconic record covers. For year’s the two have been confused as the same person, and here lies video proof that they are indeed different gentlemen. It’s a great conversation between these two artists and an interesting look into how their collaboration has worked over the years. You can also check out an in-depth interview w/ Schaff on his work with Okkervil River over the years HERE.
