“Think outside the clock.” This self-dubbed phrase has been the motivation behind Hourglass’ approach since touching the turntables in Atlanta over five years ago. Raised in Charlotte, NC, Hourglass joined forces with creative agency WERC Crew to revive nightlife scenes across the country and curate alternative brand experiences, which has landed her performances on Boiler Room, Afropunk, A3C Festival, and the mountains of Switzerland.
After Dinner Conversations is an Instagram Live series, made possible by a grant from the Pennsylvania Humanities Council.
